President Trump on Saturday tweeted that he would no longer host next year’s Group of Seven (G-7) summit at his Trump National Doral resort after intense backlash from Democrats:

The reversal came two days after the White House announced that his venue would host the world leaders next June. Critics derided the move as an immoral ploy by the president to earn profits for himself and his family, saying it was a violation of the Emoluments Clause, which prevents elected officials from receiving gifts or benefits from foreign governments.
