President Donald Trump announced late on Saturday evening that he was reversing his administration’s decision to hold the G-7 Summit at his Trump National Doral Miami golf club.
Trump had received harsh criticism for the selection violating the constitution’s domestic and foreign emolument clauses.
Tony Schwartz, who co-wrote The Art of the Deal with Trump, said the announcement was a sign Trump is feeling threatened.
“Trump never admits being wrong on anything,” Schwartz noted.
“Now, after fierce criticism for clear self-dealing, he says he won’t hold G-7 at his own hotel after all,” he explained.
“One more sign that he is feeling threatened and running scared,” Schwartz concluded.
