Reporter Goes Undercover at Trump Doral to Expose What World Leaders Would Have Seen at G7, and It's Not Pretty
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.
Watchdog group Republicans for the Rule of Law is taking no prisoners in a new ad highlighting the corruption of President Donald Trump.

The ad begins with Trump talking about his 2016 Democratic opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
