After the uproar about holding the G-7 Summit at his Doral resort in Florida, President Trump has decided to hold the summit at the famous Presidential retreat, Camp David.
According to The Hill:
President Trump on Tuesday announced that next year’s Group of Seven (G-7) summit will take place at Camp David, his second choice after initially planning to host the gathering of world leaders at one of his properties.
The president made the announcement during a NATO meeting in London with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling the Maryland retreat a “place that people like.”
“We’re going to do it at Camp David, and we’ll be doing some very special things at Camp David,” Trump said. “It’s nearby, it’s close. We’re going to give very good access to the press.”
The summit is slated for June 10-12 and will attract leaders from the other G-7 nations: Canada, Italy, Japan, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. As host, Trump is also able to invite other world leaders.
The last time the United States hosted the summit was in 2012 and that occurred at Camp David.
