President Trump disputed a resurfaced report that the Trump National Doral Miami golf resort has bedbugs after he proposed hosting next year’s Group of Seven summit at the property.
Trump took to Twitter to respond to social media posts stemming from a 2016 lawsuit by New Jersey insurance executive Eric Linder, who alleged he was bitten by bedbugs in his room at the Trump Doral golf resort, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The suit was settled in early 2017, according to court documents. The terms of the settlement were not made public.
“No bedbugs at Doral,” Trump tweeted. “The Radical Left Democrats, upon hearing that the perfectly located (for the next G-7) Doral National MIAMI was under consideration for the next G-7, spread that false and nasty rumor. Not nice!”
The G-7 is made up of the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom. His plan to host the G-7 at Doral raised accusations that he could violate the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution.
President Trump has previously touted Trump National Doral Miami in federal disclosures as the Trump Organization’s most profitable resort.
