Trump Blames Dems For Reversal On Doral, Conveniently Omits GOP Rebuke

Mulvaney has faced intense scrutiny since a headline-grabbing press conference Thursday in which he said, then denied, that Trump held up an aid package to Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into an unsubstantiated theory that Ukraine, not Russian Federation, was responsible for hacking Democratic Party emails in 2016. He is. If you are out there trying to defend the president, you shouldn't have Mick Mulvaney being your front guy.

He also said he is losing money and that being president is costing him between $2 billon and $5 billion annually, figures he would not know if he had walled himself off from his businesses as he told the American people he would. That did nothing to allay issues that the president has used his workplace to counterpoint his enterprise pursuits.

'I still think I'm doing a pretty good job as the chief of staff and I think the President agrees, ' he said.

The president said his critics were giving up a chance to host the meetings for "free" - Mr. Trump offered to host it "at cost", though details were scant - and chafed at those who said he was seeking a taxpayer-funded ad for his business.

Trump now has dropped his plan to host the summit at his Doral, Florida, resort.

Trump said he was "surprised" by the negative response.

The City of Dallas issued a request for residents to avoid downed power lines and call 911 or Oncor at 888-313-4747. Meanwhile, the line of storms responsible for the tornado threatened parts of the Plains with more severe weather .

"I don't think it will be as exciting", he said.

President Donald Trump speaks during a Cabinet meeting in the Cabinet Room of the White House, Monday, Oct. 21, 2019, in Washington.

"That's what people said that I said", he told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" of his Thursday news conference, claiming that "quid pro quo" was "reporters'" language, not his.

Still, a swift dismissal doesn't appear on the horizon, according to nine staffers and outside advisers, who noted the difficulties Trump has faced attracting and retaining high-quality White House staff even before the impeachment episode.

That notion struck some Trump allies as hollow, because the uproar was resounding in August when the president first floated the idea of choosing Doral.

Trump said "vicious" Democrats 'stick together, ' then took a shot at increasingly outspoken GOP Sen. Mulvaney reportedly told Trump that almost everyone in attendance agreed he should pick a different spot. It would have been the greatest G-7 ever. "Will we end up putting on an excellent G-7 someplace else?"
