Democrats introduced legislation Friday that would block federal funding for next year’s Group of Seven (G-7) summit at Trump National Doral Miami.
Democratic Reps. Lois Frankel (Fla.), Bennie Thompson (Miss.) and Steve Cohen (Tenn.) introduced the Trump’s Heist Undermines the G-7 (THUG) Act after acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told reporters Thursday that the Trump resort near Miami will host the annual summit of world leaders June 10-12.
The article goes on to state the following:
A companion bill is being introduced in the Senate by Democratic Sens. Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.).
Cohen tweeted, “Today I joined @RepLoisFrankel & @BennieGThompson in introducing the Trump’s Heist Undermines the G-7 (THUG) Act. This would force the Administration to turn over documents about how a Trump property was chosen & prevent federal funds from being spent at Doral Miami for the G-7.”
“The federal government isn’t the President’s personal piggy bank. Holding the next G-7 Summit at Trump’s Doral Miami resort is a brazen example of the corruption and self-dealing that has characterized this Administration,” he added.
