Donald Trump suggests his Miami golf course could stage next G7 summit

President Donald Trump insists he has no interest in profiting from next year’s Group of Seven summit even as he talks up his private Miami-area golf course as a potential site.

Mr Trump praised Trump National Doral at a televised press conference in France on Monday.

He touted its acreage, its proximity to the airport, its restaurants and what he called its “magnificent” bungalows with “magnificent views”.

Still, he claims he wouldn’t “make any money” off the summit even though he still profits from his clubs.

Mr Trump also insisted, without evidence, that the presidency will end up costing him $3bn to $5bn, even though that number seems impossibly high.

Mr Trump said earlier on Monday that Doral would be the likely venue for next year’s summit, which the US is hosting.

He said: “I think having it in Miami is fantastic.”
