Pro sports teams no longer staying at Trump hotels

Pro sports teams no longer staying at Trump hotels

The newspaper reported that 16 of the 17 NFL, NBA, MLB and National Hockey League teams that stayed at Trump hotels in recent years confirmed they will be checking in at other properties when traveling.

Among the 123 teams in US baseball, basketball, football and hockey leagues surveyed by The Washington Post, all of the 105 teams that responded said their players no longer stay at Trump Hotels.

In all, The Post found that 17 teams from across the four major sports had stayed at Trump properties in recent years.

Citing team policy, the Pelicans said Thursday that they don't reveal hotel plans for security purposes.

It's pretty simple."The Post reached out to all 123 teams in the four major USA sports leagues to find out how many men's teams are still Trump customers".

Seventeen teams stayed at a Trump hotel within the past seven years, according to the report.


'The president has seemingly made a point of dividing us as best he can, ' Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr told The Post. "He continually offends people, and so people don't want to stay at his hotel".

When Trump described any athlete that takes part in a silent protest as a "son of a b****" during a campaign rally last month, the NFL Players Association condemned the remarks.

Trump singled out Steph Curry earlier this year, un-inviting the Warriors star to the White House after Curry told reporters he did not want to go.

The Milwaukee Bucks stopped staying at Trump hotels after Trump clinched the GOP nomination. For example, at least fifteen charities pulled away from hosting events at his Mar-a-Lago estate, with many citing Trump's hostile rhetoric for why they chose other sites.

Individual players however, have spoken out as against the president and his hotels. "I don't support someone who endorses hate on other people".

Some Trump properties have continued to do well since his election in November, but according to an Associated Press report, his golf resorts in Scotland recently saw losses double to around $23 million as revenue dropped sharply. The boycott he's promoting doesn't seem to be picking up any steam - the same can not be said for how his presidency is affecting his businesses. He ran his campaign on hate.
