Sanders, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination in order to unseat Trump, decried the announcement by Mulvaney who also confirmed that the summit would be held at Trump's own golf resort in Florida.
"Not only is Trump using the powers of the presidency to enrich himself, which is blatantly unconstitutional," Sanders said in a tweet. "He is ignoring a massive international crisis that threatens humanity. What a disgrace."
