Watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington said late Saturday that president Donald Trump \u0022deserves no plaudits\u0022 for scrapping his highly criticized decision to host the next meeting of the G7 at his Doral golf resort in Florida.\u0022President Trump\u0026#039;s decision to award the G7 Conference to his own property was outrageous, corrupt, and a constitutional violation. It was stunningly corrupt even for a stunningly corrupt administration,\u0022 said Noah Bookbinder, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).\u0022His reversal of that decision is a bow to reality,\u0022 added Bookbinder, \u0022but does not change how astonishing it was that a president ever thought this was appropriate, or that it was something he could get away with.\u0022Trump’s decision to award the G-7 Conference to his own property was stunningly corrupt even for a stunningly corrupt administration. His reversal does not change how astonishing it was that he ever thought that it was appropriate, or that it was something he could get away with.— Citizens for Ethics (@CREWcrew) October 20, 2019The president announced the reversal in a pair of tweets late Saturday.\u0022I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders,\u0022 wrote Trump.\u0022I announced that I would be willing to do it at NO PROFIT or, if legally permissible, at ZERO COST to the USA,\u0022 he continued. \u0022But, as usual, the Hostile Media \u0026amp; their Democrat Partners went CRAZY!\u0022According to Bookbinder, the \u0022reversal shows that pressure works, that those fighting to hold the line for an ethical government can still sometimes dial down his corruption. The president deserves no plaudits for doing the right thing only after public outcry forced him not to do the wrong thing.\u0022\u0022This was one corrupt conflict of interest. He\u0026#039;s racked up well over 2,000 of them,\u0022 said Bookbinder. \u0022So we\u0026#039;ll keep fighting.\u0022\u0022This was one corrupt conflict of interest. He\u0026#039;s racked up well over 2,000 of them.\u0022—Noah Bookbinder, CREWTrump had floated the idea of using the \u0022severely underperforming\u0022 Miami-area resort to host the summit back in August; Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney confirmed to reporters Thursday that it was the venue.That announcement drew bipartisan backlash from lawmakers and anti-corruption groups.\u0022This is literally Trump using the power of his office to personally profit off the presidency,\u0022 said Common Cause.Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said the decision showed Trump \u0022exploiting his office and making official U.S. government decisions for his personal financial gain.\u0022\u0022The Emoluments Clauses of the Constitution exist to prevent exactly this kind of corruption,\u0022 added Nadler, whose committee is one of six involved with the Democrats\u0026#039; impeachment inquiry.Trump\u0026#039;s suggestion that the gathering would have been \u0022no profit\u0022 also doesn\u0026#039;t hold water, argued the BBC\u0026#039;s Anthony Zurcher. \u0022Even a break-even event on a Trump property is a boon for the business,\u0022 he wrote, \u0022in terms of publicity and the fact that full hotel rooms and resort facilities making break-even revenue are better than empty ones bringing in no money.\u0022Speaking to \u0022Fox News Sunday\u0022 hours after the president\u0026#039;s reversal, Mulvaney doubled down on the original decision. He said Trump \u0022was honestly surprised at the level of pushback\u0022 it got.\u0022He still considers himself to be in the hospitality business,\u0022 said Mulvaney. Host Chris Wallace pushed back, saying, \u0022He\u0026#039;s the president of the United States.\u0022\u0022But it\u0026#039;s his background,\u0022 Mulvaney said of Trump. \u0022It\u0026#039;s like I used to be in the real estate business ... he wanted to put on a show,\u0022 adding, \u0022he\u0026#039;s in the hotel business, or at least he was before he was president.\u0022Only on FOX News Sunday: Mick Mulvaney reacts to the president\u0026#039;s decision to scrap the G7 summit at his Doral resort: \u0022At the end of the day he (the President) still considers himself to be in the hospitality business.\u0022 Exclusively on FOX News Sunday.
