On Wednesday, CNN reporter Boris Sanchez reported that White House aides are backing off an official social media post touting the Trump National Doral golf resort as the site of the next G7 summit.


“The White House is shying away from a major indication the president plans to host next year’s G7 meeting at his Miami area golf resort,” said Sanchez. “The White House tweeting out, ‘Trump shares the location of the next G7 summit,’ attached to a video of Trump talking to reporters about the Doral at the G7 in France.”

“They went to places all over the country and they came back and they said this is where we would like to be,” Trump can be heard saying in the clip.

“A White House official tells CNN the tweet may be removed because plans for the next G7 meeting have not been finalized,” said Sanchez.
