Trump's Doral Resort Doubled Its Prices Right Before White House Announced Trump Visit to Address Republican National Committee
President Donald Trump seems determined to use the Presidency to turn a profit while in office.
Just weeks after national outcry forced him to withdraw his efforts to hold the massive 2020 G7 Summit of world leaders at his own Trump Doral Resort in Miami, Trump will soon address the Republican National Committee there for its winter meeting.
And the prices just went up.
President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron shared an awkward handshake this past weekend to close out the G7 summit in France.
Trump often uses handshakes as an expression of dominance—squeezing the recipient's hand, jerking it around, and refusing to let go. The result, rather than an assertion of power, often just results in awkwardness for nearly everyone but the president himself.
Trump Keeps Pitching His Doral Miami Resort as the Site of the Next G7 Summit, but Insists He's Not Going to Profit Off It
Throughout his weekend with world leaders at the G7 Summit in Paris, President Donald Trump kept looking ahead to when the United States hosts the summit in Florida next year. And his suggestion for the locale he thinks should host the summit was quite literally on brand.
Trump suggested multiple times that the summit, which costs hundreds of millions of dollars to put on, be held at his Trump National Doral Miami resort, citing the resort's luxurious rooms and proximity to the Miami airport.

People were confused when President Donald Trump claimed that First Lady Melania Trump "has gotten to know" North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un well, despite the fact that she hasn't attended any of the summits Trump has conducted with Kim over the two and a half years of his presidency.
"Kim Jong Un, who I've gotten to know extremely well — the first lady has gotten to know Kim Jong Un," Trump said, "and I think she would agree with me — he is a man with a country that has tremendous potential."
