Santo Domingo.- For the second time in just one week, the world of United States high-level politics focuses its attention on the Dominican Republic, more precisely its beaches.

Titled "Flynn’s swift downfall: From a phone call in the Dominican Republic to a forced resignation at the White House," The Washington Post reports that Flynn was at a beachside resort in the Dominican Republic, "a stretch of sand and sun that he and his wife had visited for years, when he took a few moments out of their post-election vacation for a call with the Russian ambassador to the United States."

It reports that Flynn As a veteran intelligence officer, "must have known that a call with a Russian official in Washington would be intercepted by the U.S. government, pored over by FBI analysts and possibly even shared with the White House."

"But six weeks later, Flynn was forced out of his job as national security adviser to President Trump over what was said in that conversation and Flynn’s inability to be truthful about it with then-Vice President-elect Mike Pence and other officials now in senior positions at the White House," the outlet said.

The news comes just days after Eric Trump, son of US president Donald Trump, visited the Dominican Republic on February 8 reportedly to revive their stake in the beachfront development of Cap Cana, in the Caribbean country's east region.

The DR is the preferred place for vacationing of high profile persons, not only due to our beautiful beaches but our warm and friendly people that love visitors. No other caribbean nation has this asset.

Generoso.

The D.R. is popular because it is cheap. Something that somebody on a US civil servant salary, like Flynn, can afford.

AnthonyC, how about J-Z and his wife, or the Clinton's and the Bushes, are they poor or high end travelers. Julio Iglesia, Cisnero and also Sr. Branson from the UK. Those people also comes here. So please explain yourself. Stop being such of hater to the Dominican Republic. Don't always be so freaking negative.

Oh stop ! Trump is just looking for another golf course . And new hotel . I wouldn't get invested in that either . Nothing in the DR is a safe investment .. Why ? Because thieves are alway involved knowing full well that nothing will be done when they rip off their investors . See the reports on the Elliot's if any body doesn't believe this to be true . The freedom to just take investors money and do nothing or break any legal agreements is considered to be perfectly legal in the DR . Trump is probably personal friends with Tim Terrcelli in puerto plata . Who is still there after ripping off investors of millions . And free as a bird .

Please. I can go to place where Jay Z and his Ho wouldn't even be let in the door.

Political types like the Clintons and Bushs hit the DR as guests of those who finance their campaigns, Pure nou·veau riche to collect more $$$.

Where are the $400 million dollars in pledges to the Clinton Foundation for Haiti earthquake relief? It never made it to Haiti, that's for sure!
