Axios reported Monday that the 800-acre golf course owned by the Trump Organization is among the finalists to be the venue, backing up a Washington Post report claiming the same from June.

President Trump does not directly run the Trump Organization, which he put into a trust controlled by his adult sons when he entered office in 2017.

However, he has faced criticism for standing to profit financially from guests and events at his chain of hotels, which have included prominent foreign officials and Republican groups.

Hosting the summit, which brings together economic leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the U.S., at the golf course would likely increase that kind of scrutiny.

House Democrats have introduced legislation which would ban the federal government from spending money at Trump's businesses.

The White House declined to comment on the summit potentially being held at the Doral golf resort.
