Trump laments G-7 move from Doral after bipartisan pushback

Democratic lawmakers have accused Trump of withholding $391 million in aid to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy into investigating Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden regarding corruption, but Mulvaney claims that this was indeed not the case.

Mulvaney denied on "Fox News Sunday" that there was any consideration of his resignation, "Absolutely, positively not".

President Trump on Monday continued to rail about having to remove his Doral golf resort as host of the G-7 gathering of world leaders saying he "would have done it for free".

"That's not what I said", Mulvaney told "Fox News Sunday" as host Chris Wallace repeatedly confronted him with his own comments. It was also an opportunity for Mulvaney demonstrate his ability to defend the president. "You don't think I get enough promotion?" He said that USA military aid was withheld from Ukraine to nudge the country to investigate alleged corruption in the 2016 election. "The president of the United States should be allowed to run the country, not have to focus on this kind of crap while, at the same time, doing a great job on Syria and Turkey and all of the other things that we're doing". "My language never said quid pro quo".

In first choosing Trump National Doral, the president said it would be offered at no profit or zero cost if legally possible, something he says the media ignored.

CNN's Boris Sanchez reported on the president's new comments today, remarking, "The president also lamenting what he called the phony emoluments clause, incorrectly suggesting he's the only president to donate his salary and possibly also George Washington".

Trump has come under scrutiny for how often he visits Trump-owned and Trump-branded possessions as president which contributes to tax dollars being invested in his small business.

House Democrats were quick to accuse the president of seeking to corruptly profit from his office after last week's announcement, and said the decision would form part of their impeachment inquiry. They argued that the president's aides, Mulvaney first among them, either should have persuaded him not to hold it there or devised a better communications strategy.

"I'm very good at real estate", Mr. Trump said Monday. "I believe that it's the correct choice to change and we are going to have to find somewhere else and my guess is we will find somewhere else that the media will not enjoy for one more reason".
