Report Says Pro Sports Teams No Longer Staying At Trump Hotels
The push-back from President Donald Trump being elected, along with constant controversies that include back-and-forth arguments with different athletes, sports leagues, and sports anchors, has stopped many pro sports teams from staying at Trump Hotels, according to a Washington Post investigation.
The reports states that 16 of the 17 NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL teams that previously stayed at Trump hotels in recent years confirmed they will be checking in at other properties when traveling around the country.
“The president has seemingly made a point of dividing us as best he can,” Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He continually offends people, and so people don’t want to stay at his hotel. It’s pretty simple.”
Trump took to Twitter to personally call out Stephen Curry and un-invite the Golden State Warriors to the White House, even though much of the team had already confirmed they weren’t going anyway.
The report also stated that NBA teams paid upwards of $20,000 a night to stay at hotels like Trump SoHo in New York City.
The Milwaukee Bucks stopped staying at Trump hotels shortly after Trump clinched the GOP nomination.
“I don’t support someone who endorses hate on other people,” Parker said. “He ran his campaign on hate. He’s attacked everything that I am and believe.”
