There is nothing quite like the alleged leader of the free world standing up at the Group of 7 (G-7) and hawking his properties. Donald Trump sounded much like a walking travel brochure. Not only was that embarrassing, but it is also illegal, but Americans got even.
As POTUS gave his last meandering press conference, he hit upon the Trump International Doral golf resort. He announced his people had selected this location from among many for the 2020 G-7. There was just one problem. The resort had been sued for a severe bedbug infestation. Trump was irate:
‘No bedbugs at Doral. The Radical Left Democrats, upon hearing that the perfectly located (for the next G-7) Doral National MIAMI was under consideration for the next G-7, spread that false and nasty rumor. Not nice!’
The U.S. president broke the Emoluments Clause in The Constitution, because it has always been illegal for presidents to make a profit from foreign entities. He bragged:
‘With Doral, we have a series of magnificent buildings, we call them bungalows. They each hold from 50 to 70 — very luxurious rooms with magnificent views. We have incredible conference rooms, incredible restaurants. It’s like — it’s like such a natural — we wouldn’t even have to do the work that they did here.’
In the settled 2017 lawsuit, a guest alleged he had been bitten by bedbugs in 2016. According to The Miami Herald, the guest said the bungalow where he was assigned had “a severe bedbug infestation.”
The commander-in-chief blamed the Radical Left Democrats of being behind the “false and nasty rumor.” Still, the issue appeared too difficult to resist, and #TrumpBedBugs started trending on Twitter.
