    Trump ditches hosting G7 summit at his golf course

    US President Donald Trump has abandoned plans to host next year's G7 summit at one of his resorts in Florida after bipartisan criticism.

    In a series of late tweets, Mr Trump said he was reversing the idea because of "crazed and irrational hostility" by Democrats and the media.

    Critics said the plan was evidence of Mr Trump using the office for personal gain, which the White House denied.

    Mr Trump said the presidential retreat at Camp David could host the G7 summit.

    Trump acts more like a King than an elected leader. In the UK we have laws against this sort of abuse. I suspect that you do as well.

    I'll bet it's those laws that made you so properly fit to not get overrun by the Nazi's without someone else's help....

    Oh wait.

    Why do you just deflect rather than discuss the point being made ? Are you that limited ?

    There is no point being made Tommy. He's a free to propose whatever he wants.

    If he has a conflict of interest, he should not do it.

    Tell us what were the democrats complaining about ?

    You think those leader might not like a change of scenery ?

    We don't have a king and he's not trying to be one.

    He's the court jester following our affirmative action failure.

    This country can withstand most any asshole because we have a good system that has checks and balances.

    Focusing on those and real issues instead of the bullshit you and your "intellectual class" keep raising would do us some good.

    But we can't seem to get there.

    You guys are so caught up in yourselves and your self importance...you crowd the good stuff out.

    your post is both idiotic and mean-spirited. Trump is reacting to what is merely
    THE APPEARANCE OF IMPROPRIETY ---------which is a good idea. You brits
    have had lots of APPEARANCE of impropriety in your miserable history (and way
    beyond merely appearance)
