Next G7 Summit Will Take Place at Camp David: Trump

The next Group of Seven summit will take place at Camp David in Maryland, President Donald Trump said on Dec. 3.

Speaking during a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in London, Trump told reporters about the summits location.

“We are going to do it at Camp David,” he said.

The summit was always going to take place somewhere in the United States because the country holds the presidency of the group through next year.

The summit will be held on June 10 through June 12, 2020.

Trump in August said that the next summit would likely be held in Miami, Florida, with his Trump National Doral Resort being considered as a possible venue.

“I dont think there will be any surprises,” Trump said. “Im not looking for surprises. I think well have a very successful G-7. Itll probably be in Miami, right next to the International Airport.”

“Its a great place. Its got tremendous acreage. Many hundreds of acres. So we can handle whatever happens,” he added.

Trump said 12 sites were considered.

In October, he dropped his offer to host the meeting at his golf resort with no profit, criticizing people who had said he shouldnt host the summit at the venue.

“I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders. It is big, grand, on hundreds of acres, next to MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, has tremendous ballrooms & meeting rooms, and each delegation would have its own 50 to 70 unit building,” he said in a tweet on Oct. 19.

“Would set up better than other alternatives. I announced that I would be willing to do it at NO PROFIT or, if legally permissible, at ZERO COST to the USA. But, as usual, the Hostile Media & their Democrat Partners went CRAZY!”
