United States hosting G-7 summit at Trump's Doral resort: White House

With the host setting much of agenda for a G-7 meeting, Mulvaney said that Trump could invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to attend the event to be held June 10-12, although he said that issue hasn't yet come up.

In a stunning display of apathy about President Trump's apparent efforts to promote his business and his reelection prospects while conducting foreign policy, acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney on Thursday made several startling admissions during a press briefing at the White House.

Democrats immediately jumped on Mulvaney's statement, declaring that it was proof that the president had a "quid pro quo" agreement with the foreign aid.

The White House is acknowledging that President Donald Trump asked Ukraine's leader to investigate his country's role in meddling in the 2016 US presidential campaign. "But that's it, and that's why we held up the money".

"You're talking about looking forward to the next election", Mulvaney replied. Absolutely", Mulvaney said. "No question about that.
