According to a recent report by the Washington Post, professional sports teams are avoiding Trump hotels. Of the 17 teams that said they previously stayed at a Trump hotel, 16 said they are actively trying not to stay there anymore.
This includes teams from the NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB. But not all are refusing to stay because they are opposed to Donald Trump. But those that are are more vocal about it:
“’The president has seemingly made a point of dividing us as best he can,’ The Golden State Warriors basketball coach Steve Kerr said. ‘He continually offends people, and so people don’t want to stay at his hotel. It’s pretty simple.’
“Kerr and his team used to spend about $20,000 per night at hotels like the Trump SoHo in Manhattan.”
So when White House Press Secretary was asked about the boycott by the Washington Post, she did not mince words. She plainly stated that Trump’s response is, “I don’t care:”
“Trump does not care about his business and cares about the country, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told The Washington Post.
“’The president has repeatedly said he doesn’t care about his business, he cares about the country,’ Sanders said in an email. ‘The president’s position on athletes standing for the National Anthem is about respecting the flag and the men and women of the military who sacrifice to defend it and nothing else.’”
Well played, Sarah, well played.
