Mulvaney has struggled to explain his abrupt about-face since a Thursday news conference in which he saidTrump "absolutely" raised concerns about a Democratic National Committee server that was hacked in 2016, which according to a debunked conspiracy theory could be in Ukraine and could prove Russian Federation didn't interfere in the 2016 election. The push was largely being driven by the president's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, they said, whom diplomats were being told to work with on Ukraine policy, according to US ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, who said he was disappointed by the directive. "Even a break-even event on a Trump property is a boon for the business", he wrote, "in 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".
Trump has faced unprecedented GOP opposition to his decision to withdraw US troops from northern Syria, including blunt criticism from the usually loyal Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and a stampede of Republicans supporting a House resolution denouncing his Syrian policy.
On Thursday, Mulvaney had discounted Camp David, the government-owned presidential retreat, as the site for the summit, claiming, "I understand the folks who participated in it hated it and thought it was a miserable place to have the G-7".
Diamond did also say a sourcetold CNN that White House aides have reached out to at least two potential successors to Mulvaney. "We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately", he added.
"But, no, there's no issue here on him profiting from this in any way, shape, or form". He said the decision was made due to pressure from the "hostile media & their Democrat partners".
Critics said the plan was evidence of Mr Trump using the office for personal gain, which the White House denied.

Mulvaney's defense of the president comes as reports emerge that there was an internal effort in the White House to push out the acting chief of staff - an effort that was put on hold as the impeachment inquiry commenced.
"Noah Bookbinder, CREWTrump had floated the idea of using the "severely underperforming" Miami-area resort to host the summit back in August; Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaneyconfirmed to reporters Thursday that it was the venue". I announced that I would be willing to do it at NO PROFIT or, if legally permissible, at ZERO COST to the USA.
In his Fox interview Sunday, Mulvaney again insisted there was no quid pro quo in Trump's dealings with Ukraine.
That contradicted what Mulvaney said at a news briefing last Thursday, when he openly confirmed that the administration's decision to delay congressionally approved aid to Ukraine was linked to Trump's demand for the country to investigate what, if any, role that country played in the 2016 US election, despite a lack of evidence.
'But we did talk about it last night and I honestly think what you saw in the tweet was real'. Ethics experts and many lawmakers quickly attacked the decision. "I think it's the right decision to change and we'll have to find someplace else, and my guess is we'll find someplace else the media won't like for another reason".
