A day after Donald Trump presented his golf resort in the Miami area as the location for next year's G7 summit, he heard a tweet about a & # 39; false and nasty rumor & # 39; that the playground for the rich with 643 rooms has a bed bug plague.
& # 39; No bedbugs at Doral, & # 39; the president insisted.
& # 39; The Radical Left Democrats, when they heard 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! & # 39;
Trump had devoted part of Monday's press conference in France to a sales pitch for his Trump National Doral Miami Golf Resort, boasting about the series of beautiful buildings. We call them bungalows. They each have 50 to 70 very luxurious rooms with a beautiful view. & # 39;
& # 39; We have incredible meeting rooms, incredible restaurants. It's as if it's so natural, & he said and skipped over the ample parking.
It wasn't long before political Twitter recalled a 2016 lawsuit filed by a New Jersey insurance director who claimed that bedbugs in a Trump Doral villa had left him bites and strains in March 2016.
President Donald Trump insisted on Tuesday that his Trump National Doral Miami Golf Resort was not a hotbed of bedbugs and defended the country club against rumors that spread after he announced that the property was likely to be a location for next year's G7 summit.

New Jersey, insurance director Eric Linder, sued Trump Doral and said that he woke up one morning in March 2016 with dozens of bed bug bites; this photo was part of the evidence in his court case that was settled out of court
Eric Linder complained for a minimum of $ 15,000 four months later and reached a confidential settlement in 2017. Attempts to reach him on Tuesday were unsuccessful.
In his court case, Linder wrote that & # 39; (a) a direct and proximal result of being bitten by bed bugs, the plaintiff suffered physical injury and resulting pain and suffering, disability, malformation, mental anxiety, aggravation, and / or acceleration of pre-existing condition (s), loss of ability to enjoy life, costs of hospitalization, medical and nursing care and treatment. & # 39;
& # 39; The losses are permanent or will remain in nature and the claimant will suffer the losses in the future & he added. & # 39; In addition, the claimant incurred the costs of alternative hotel costs and for the replacement of clothing, as well as other personal belongings, that were subject to the bed bud (sic) contamination.
Trump Doral responded in the litigation report that Linder had behaved so carelessly and negligently that his behavior was the only near cause or contributing cause & # 39; of insect bites.
Ron Klain, a democratic political officer who once served as the chief of staff of the then vice-president Joe Biden, was one of the first to dredge the lawsuit on Monday.
& # 39; Expect (sic) next year's G-7 to be scarce if Trump keeps it on Doral, & # 39; he wrote, citing in January 2017 Miami Herald briefly about the resolution of the trial.
Anti-Trump author Seth Abramson claimed that the 2020 meeting & # 39; the & # 39; G-7 million would be – seven world leaders and the 6,999,993 bed bugs at Trump Doral.
Bedbugs (scientifically called & # 39; Cimex lectularius & # 39;) are blood-eating species that attack people when they sleep & # 39;
Linder said that he was staying in a room in the Jack Nicklaus villa on the Doral site when he was partying for the greedy insects

Democratic political organizer Holly Figueroa O & # 39; Reilly, who brags online that the president once blocked her on Twitter, called the situation & # 39; beyond parody & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Doral has a scourge of bedbugs, a crazy shooter and bleeds because Trump's brand is for nothing & # 39 ;, she wrote, & # 39; but let's host the world leaders in this mess, and oh, while we & # 39; again, make it the G-8 by adding Russia. & # 39;

& # 39; They went to places all over the country, & # 39; he said to reporters, & # 39; and they came back and said, "This is where we would like to be". & # 39;
Hosting the G7 at Doral would offer benefits & # 39; because of the way it is set up & he added. & # 39; Each country can have its own villa or bungalow. & # 39;
& # 39; The bungalows … they have many units, so I think it works just fine, & # 39; he said.
