Trump says being president has cost him $2 billion to $5 billion

Mulvaney, when announcing the venue of the summit last week, said Trump would make the resort available "at cost" and would not profit.

"At the end of the day, he still considers himself to be in the hospitality business, and he saw an opportunity to take the biggest leaders from around the world and he wanted to put on the absolute best show, the best visit that he possibly could and he was very confident of doing that at Doral", Mulvaney said.

Trump said his administration "will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately".

Mulvaney said on October 17 that he understood that the decision to host the G7 at the Trump National Doral Miami was facing criticism, but that the resort had been determined to have the best conditions for the summit.

Acting White House budget director Russell Vought said both he and Michael Duffey, associate director for national security programs at the Office of Management and Budget, would not provide depositions to the committees leading the inquiry. During a Sunday interview, Mulvaney noted he never said there was "quid pro quo" regarding the aid and an investigation into the hacking of a DNC server.

"Doral in Miami would have been the best place to hold the G-7, and free, but too much heat from the Do Nothing Radical Left Democrats & their Partner, the Fake News Media!"

The summit was held at the presidential retreat of Camp David in Maryland, some 60 miles from Washington, in 2012, when it was hosted by then-President Barack Obama. Trump broke from past presidents by maintaining ownership of his businesses and not placing his assets in a blind trust, which critics say has presented a conflict of interest.

Trump insisted that he was not trying to use the G7 to promote his own property. "Hosting the G7 at Trump's hotel?"

Trump has alleged that when Joe Biden was USA vice president, he threatened to withhold loan guarantees to Ukraine unless an earlier corruption probe into the gas company was stopped. "But, as usual, the hostile media [and] their democrat partners went insane!" Yet, when Mulvaney was informing the press last week at the White House, he said that Trump knew he'd get some heat for the announcement.

Mulvaney said that he and Trump discussed the move and the bipartisan hit the president took for the decision to put Doral on the short list.

Despite Psaki not saying quid pro quo she did, in fact, say using "levers", and getting one thing for another. He said that US military aid was withheld from Ukraine to nudge the country to investigate alleged corruption in the 2016 election.
