Trump’s golf club in Doral, Florida, is reportedly among the finalists to host the G-7 international summit.

Axios reported on Monday that Trump National Doral is in the running after the Trump administration “completed site surveys of possible locations, and is down to its final few choices.”

If the decision is made to host the meeting at his club, Trump stands to generate income for himself.

He chose early in his administration not to divest from or sell his various holdings. That means that even while sitting in the presidency, the money made from Trump businesses goes to Trump. The corrupt arrangement allows him to make presidential decisions — like where to host the conference — that can significantly enrich him.

Earlier in the month, it was revealed that Trump National Doral was the site of a strip club’s charity fundraiser where a “caddy girl” auction would take place.

Now, thanks to the club’s owner sitting in the Oval Office, the same establishment could soon host a meeting of the largest economic superpowers in the world.
