Following bipartisan criticism, Trump reversed the decision Saturday, saying his administration would begin the search for a new location, “including the possibility of Camp David, immediately.”
“We talked about it at great length last night,” Mulvaney told “Fox News Sunday,” adding that Trump “was honestly surprised at the level of pushback.”
“At the end of the day he still considers himself to be in the hospitality business and he saw an opportunity to take the biggest leaders from around the world and he wanted to put on the absolute best show, the best visit that he possibly could, and he was very comfortable doing that at Doral,” Mulvaney said. “I think we were all surprised at the level of pushback. 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.”
The REASON the press, and most Americans, didn’t like it was because it was explicitly UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
