The White House is reportedly backing away from President Donald Trump’s proposal to hold next year’s G7 Summit at his resort in Doral, Florida.

An unnamed White House official told CNN on Wednesday that the White House’s tweet declaring Doral as the summit location might be taken down.

“I don’t know if that’s gonna stay up forever,” the official said.

Another official reportedly said that though Doral is still under consideration, the White House is looking at other sites.

Trump’s Doral suggestion earlier this week, followed by the White House’s apparent confirmation, was met with a wave of criticism blasting the enormous conflict of interest.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
