President Donald Trump tweeted that there are “No bedbugs at Doral” — referring to his Florida resort which reached a 2017 settlement with a guest who alleged he was bitten by bed bugs there in 2016.

“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!”

He went on, “We have a series of magnificent buildings, we call them bungalows, they each hold from 50 to 70 rooms, they have magnificent views.”

The White House has not yet announced the location of next year’s G7, which the US will host.
