Trump’s Miami golf resort wasn’t best choice for G7 meeting


Here’s the funny thing about the US government trying to pick President Trump’s National Doral Miami golf resort for next year’s G7 meeting.

Last winter, I golfed one of the courses at Doral. (I paid my own way.)

Before teeing off, I was chatting with the people working on the course and asked whether the president had been there recently. They said Trump hadn’t been to Doral since he became president because security was too difficult at the sprawling club’s property.

All other issues aside, how was security going to be good enough for the leaders of the world’s seven most influential countries if it wasn’t good enough for Trump?

The White House has since changed its mind about Doral hosting the meeting. But why did this come up in the first place?

What I didn’t mention was that the rate I paid was heavily discounted, so maybe the course isn’t doing very well financially and it needed the G7 business.
