President Donald Trump is furious at reports that one of the hotel resorts that he owns in Doral, Florida is infested with bedbugs. He vehemently denied these reports and blamed “Radical Left Democrats” for fanning the rumor flames, according to The Washington Post, after he made public his plans to host the Group of Seven summit at the golf resort.
“No bedbugs at Doral,” Trump wrote in a midmorning tweet. “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!”

But despite his claims that his place is safe, there are a few folks out there with bumps and bites to prove otherwise.
Take Eric Linder. In 2016, he sued the Doral after staying in the exclusive Jack Nicklaus Villa. According to Linder, he woke up from sleeping and was covered with “welts, lumps and marks over much of his face, neck, arms and torso.”
The Trump Organization denies that he was bitten and that there are bedbugs on the property, but did actually settle the case in 2017 with a confidentiality clause… Yup… right after the president’s inauguration.
But just like fleas on a dirty dog, these allegations popped up again. On Monday, after his news conference ended and he proposed that these various foreign diplomats gather at The Doral, the hashtag #TrumpBedBugs started to trend on Twitter.
You settled a lawsuit because you had bedbugs at the Doral.
Once again, everything you deny winds up being true.https://t.co/wGBAtHDbJq

When Trump decided to use the US Presidency to promote his properties AND then demanded that world leaders pay him to meet with him, he committed a clear impeachable offense. If Congress is not going to act, the least we can do is let everyone know about the #TrumpBedBugs

Whatcha gonna do

When they chew on you
You were at Doral
You went to bed
You wake up covered
From your toes to your head
So why is Trump
Such a whiny bitch?

You got to itch
Bed bugs, bed bugs,
whatcha gonna do#TrumpBedBugs

1. You had to settle a lawsuit because a dude was almost eaten alive by #TrumpBedBugs.
2. Promoting that bed bug-infested Shithole is a violation of #EmolumentsClause.
3. Good night. Sleep tight. Don’t stay at Doral, because those bed bugs BITE. https://t.co/ZT9q5LnOlx
