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.

People were disturbed when President Donald Trump, at the G7 summit in France, called for next year's summit in the United States to be held in Miami, Florida—at his resort.

Expectant Russian parents are coming to Donald Trump’s resorts in order to give birth on American soil.

Birth tourism is not a new trend; around the world, parents travel to other countries to give birth. In China, parents traveled to circumvent the one-child policy. In the U.S., parents have traveled to Canada to take advantage of lower healthcare costs. Many people travel to give their children advantages offered by their country of birth, including educational access, healthcare, citizenship, and future ability to sponsor their parents.
