Trump's Acting Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, had announced on Thursday the selection of Trump National Doral Club as the site hosting the G7 leaders' summit, which is scheduled to take place between June 10-12, 2020, reports Efe news.

I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders.

In announcing his reversal on the location of the G-7 summit, Trump said the administration would look for a new site, including possibly the presidential retreat at Camp David.

President Trump has been under criticism ever since acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney made the official announcement earlier this week.

Other White House officials denied that Mulvaney, a former SC representative who's among the longest serving officials in the Trump administration, is at risk of being pushed out. He also said that the site was too remote and small in size for the world leaders to have a discussion.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told CNN on Friday that holding the G7 at Trump's property was "completely out of the question".

"I was aware of the political criticism", he said.

The President has defended his decision to host the summit at the resort despite accusations from critics that he was using his office for personal enrichment.

Trump cited what he termed "Crazed and Irrational Hostility" from Democrats and the news media in explaining his decision. In his revised statements, Mulvaney has said that the process was slowed not because of a quid pro quo, but because of concerns about corruption in Ukraine and the level of contributions from European nations.

A whistleblower from an American intelligence agency had reported in August that the president had pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to pursue an investigation of Joe Biden, a potential Trump rival for the presidency next year, and of his son Hunter, who did business in Ukraine. "It's like I used to be in the real estate business. he wanted to put on a show", adding, "he's in the hotel business, or at least he was before he was president".

However, during his news conference Thursday, Mulvaney said the USA requested Ukraine assist in the investigation into the handling of the Democratic National Committee server that was hacked in 2016 - and then insinuated that was the reason the administration chose to withhold funds from Ukraine.

Diamond then noted Fox's Chris Wallace flat out asked Mulvaney if he considered resigning after the press conference. Plus, Trump has rarely seen an upside with admitting a wrong. It's unclear if there are other venues under consideration.

An impeachment inquiry now under way in the U.S. House of Representatives includes whether Trump is illegally making money off his presidency in violation of the U.S, Constitution, which forbids a president from profiting from foreign governments or receiving money from the U.S. government except a salary.
