When President Donald Trump's chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, announced that the administration would be hosting the 2020 G7 summit of world leaders at Trump's own Doral Miami resort, there was widespread backlash. It was widely considered it a poorly masked attempt by Trump to profit off the Presidency by funneling millions of taxpayer dollars into one of his businesses.

The Trump administration, while falsely claiming the President wouldn't profit from the summit, insisted that Doral was chosen solely because it was the best place in the United States to host the G7. Mulvaney even said one of the site's inspectors remarked that Doral appeared to be made especially for the G7, with bountiful accommodations for the expansive security, culinary, transportation, and other amenities required for a gathering of world leaders.

President Donald Trump spent much of this past weekend's G7 summit advocating for Russian President Vladimir Putin, who launched an attack on the sanctity of American democracy in 2016 and has continued to do so. Now Russian state television is mocking Trump for being such an unwavering ally to Putin.

President Donald Trump praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for his illegal 2014 seizure of Crimea, a peninsula on the coast of Ukraine, at the 2019 G7 summit in France. Trump made the assertion that somehow former President Barack Obama was to blame.
