22. The grand scope of why Turd45 tried to use his Doral property for the G7 summit.

1) June is usually the second-worst month for Doral Resort. Only 38% of its rooms are generally occupied. IQ45 would be taking in money at the resort, at a time of year when no one goes to Florida, because it's too hot.

2) Doral has only 2 presidential suites, meaning that at least 5 other suites would need to be built/renovated to accommodate all the heads of state. And who would pay for that? Taxpayers!

3) They would need to build 2 helipads for helicopters that would then need to be removed and the golf course area restored. Again, with taxpayer dollars.

4) There would be many months prior to the G7 meeting that requires advance teams from the other countries to make the preparations and they would be staying at the hotel.

5) Doral is a bit shabby/tired and would need to have work done to bring it up to standard. With taxpayer dollars.

It was clear that Trump was not only getting the money from the room charges and all the rentals, but he is now trying to get the place fixed up, for free, with taxpayer money.

Also, they said they would charge "at cost". But they also said they would determine what "at cost" really means.
Room rates at Doral are around $250/night. During off season (June) around $200/night. Assuming a 10% profit, with "At cost" you'd expect the room rate to drop to about $180/night.

No doubt that Donnie-Smorgasbord would have charged upwards $500-$1000/night for advance teams and entourage, while charging a premium for the presidential suites and claim it was "at cost"
