Pro sports teams no longer staying at Trump hotels

Pro sports teams no longer staying at Trump hotels

The push-back from President Donald Trump being elected along with constant controversies that include the current back and forth with different athletes, sports leagues, and anchors on ESPN has stopped many pro sports teams from staying at Trump Hotels, according to a Washington Post investigation.

After Curry declared, "I don't want to go", Trump tweeted: 'Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.

In all, 17 teams from across the major professional sports leagues had stayed at Trump properties before 2015. Some of the teams chose not to stay at the hotels such as limited bus access, they told The Washington Post.

Trump SoHo used to be the place where more than a third of the National Basketball Association stayed when they had games in NY. One team, for instance, cited logistical concerns, stating that it was hard to transport the team from one of the hotels to the arena where they were scheduled to play.

Last season, Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago didn't host the Los Angeles Dodgers when they faced the Cubs in the NLCS despite staying there earlier in the season.

It's reasonable to assume, then, that some of these teams made similar calculations, and pulled out of Trump's properties at least partially because of the president's demeanor.

On Wednesday, President Trump said former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick should've been suspended for kneeling during the national anthem, his latest public foray into sports and the ongoing protests against racial inequality.

While NFL teams typically don't stay at luxury hotels like Trump's due to their massive teams and support staff, other teams do.

A person with knowledge of the Milwaukee Bucks' decision to drop Trump SoHo told The Washington Post that the Trump organization "was seen as not reflecting the franchise's values, and some players were not comfortable patronizing its properties".

'The president has repeatedly said he doesn't care about his business, he cares about the country, ' Sanders wrote in an email to The Post. "He's attacked everything that I am and believe". The trend started before Trump denounced football players who refuse to stand for the National Anthem.
