    Can anyone say Graft? Enriching oneself? Corruption?
    in the past, how do suppose hosting sites were chosen?

    random draw from a hat?

    lowest price?



    were G7 meetings in the past held at Motel 6's?

      Could have picked plenty of places that wouldn't line Trump's own pockets. Not like there aren't plenty of different conference centers all over the country.

        Trump has never been the type who would try to avoid the appearance of impropriety.

          They don't care. That's one of the hardest things for me to accept, that so many of them don't care.

          Still a few who do:

          Our Republic Is Under Attack From the President
          If President Trump doesn’t demonstrate the leadership that America needs, then it is time for a new person in the Oval Office.

            Nice dodge - of course it's obvious why you won't answer the questions I asked

              I looked up past hosting sites, none of them had direct monetary ties to heads of state. The last time the USA hosted it was held in Camp David. No reason that couldn't have happened again.

                I've been in a lot of presidential meetings in that room and I never saw anyone literally stand up to a president like that because no one ever had to.

                Only Trump would tweet this perfect picture of his weakness & humiliation. @SpeakerPelosi finest moment. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1184597281808498688 …


                Look at the faces of Trump's people. They are embarrassed for him. Pelosi owns him and they both know it.

                  I'd rather it be shame at their own cowardly selves, that they hadn't long since taken a stand.

                  So many cowards...

                        Trump is delusional. I thought that would have been painfully obvious to you by now. Mental health professionals have warned about him for years to no avail, unfortunately for us all.

                        • It's kind of a tip-off that he wanted the poor to have guns. These days, what sort of republican would do anything at all for a homeless person. Being a libertarian, this guy didn't care about such distinctions. It's not a good move, given that homeless people are often mentally-ill.

                          And no, mentally-ill people aren't more violent than others, but they do scare easily sometimes. I'm concerned about someone harassing one of them. A shotgun is too handy a fix for that problem.

                          • Feds Admit 1,250 More Immigrant Children Were Separated From Parents
                            Sabraw noted the process of reuniting the newly separated families is likely to be more arduous than the first time around.
                            Steven Herzog – who heads the steering committee of law firms and nonprofits working to reunite separated families – confirmed most of the parents have been deported to Guatemala and Honduras.

                            “It’s going to be more challenging to track them down than the initial group of 471 parents who were deported without their kids,” Sabraw said.
                            Herzog said a group of nearly 100 attorneys have made more than 4,200 phone calls to parents and sponsors in their reunification efforts for the 868 children of possible new class members that have so far been identified.
                            About 436 sponsors and 225 parents have been reached.

                            Only 23 parents have been located in their countries of origin so far, Herzog said.

                              pretty irresponsible of those parents to subject their children to those risks, um?

                                Not when the situation they're fleeing from makes it worth the risk.
