The Miami New Times reports that the Community Financial Services Association of America (CFSA) will host its annual conference at President Donald Trump’s golf resort in Doral this year. The CFSA, a trade group that represents payday loan companies, traditionally holds the conference in California during odd-numbered years.

Sekinah Hamlin of the Center for Responsible Lending said the move is a “clear conflict of interest.”

"Previously, they did not meet at his resorts, but it just so happens that once he became president, then they started meeting at his resorts. We don't think it's happenstance, and we think it's a slap in the face to American families."
