Rick Santorum, a former US Senator from Pennsylvania said holding the international gathering at a Trump property a “violation of law,” to which Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Kevin McCarthy and the rest of Trump sycophants said, “and?”

Democrats and even Walter Shaub, a former director of the Office of Government Ethics, tion said the selection would be “ a corrupting influence tainting the procurement process” if Doral were to ultimately host the event .

The Washington Post reported in May that Doral was in “steep decline” and the club’s net operating income had plunged 69% over two years. Trump called that report; wait for it, “fake news.”
