The recent announcement by White House Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney that the 2020 G7 will be held at Trump National in Doral, Florida, infuriated Democrats and thrilled Republicans.

Naturally.

Everyone from the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates like Joe Biden to House Democrats like Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Ted Deutch, took issue with the announcement, echoing the narrative that Trump was only holding the annual event at his resort to make money for himself.

Rubio, whose senate office is located no more than 50 yards from the entrance of Trump National, recently told Bloomberg reporter Steven Dennis that he thought is was “great” the event was being held in Miami.

“Selfishly as a Floridian, senator from Florida, I think it’s great any time our community gets that kind of attention,” said Rubio.

Rep. Ted Deutch (D) one of many House Democrats pushing for impeachment, took issue with Rubio’s G7 remark, saying “Sorry, but corruption that benefits Floridians is still corrupt. Integrity means standing up to corruption even if letting it slide benefits people you represent.

“We cannot normalize corrupt behavior,” stated Wasserman Schultz “This is just one more Trump self-enrichment scheme, one that raises glaring ethical and Emoluments clause concerns. When will Republicans stand up to say this is not okay, this is not how American leaders should conduct themselves?”
