Sports teams are staying away from Trump hotels

Though some of the teams told the Post that they stopped staying at Trump hotels because of other reasons, like bus access, several confirmed that they pulled out because of Trump's politics. Eighteen teams declined to respond to the survey, and 71 responded that their respective teams hadn't stayed at a Trump property within the last seven years.

Among the 123 teams in USA 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.

Most of the teams stopped visiting Trump properties within the previous year, while others like the NBA's Dallas Mavericks and Indiana Pacers reportedly began staying elsewhere as early as 2014.

According to a report from the Washington Post, at least 12 National Basketball Association teams had stayed at Trump's Manhattan hotel since it opened in 2010.

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.

Following public hearings in Galway last summer, An Bord Pleanála gave Apple the go-ahead to build the facility last August. Ireland's worldwide business reputation has been damaged by delays to the Apple data centre in Athenry, according to IBEC.

The Post reached out to all 123 teams in the four major US sports leagues to find out how many teams are still Trump customers. A league favorite had been the Trump SoHo in Manhattan, but the WaPo found that since Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, 11 teams have found accommodations elsewhere.

Trump did recently welcome the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins to the White House, but his relationship with the NFL has suffered for his criticism of players sitting or kneeling during the national anthem.

As Trump tries to push for a boycott of any sports team that allows its players to speak their minds on or off the field, it may behoove the president to consider how his own words or actions are hurting his bottom line.

"The president has repeatedly said he doesn't care about his business, he cares about the country", Sanders said in an email. "I don't support someone who endorses hate on other people". 'He ran his campaign on hate.
