Jabari Parker, one of the young stars on the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks, a team that stopped staying at Trump hotels after 2015-16, said the switch was definitely due to politics.
The Washington Post, in pursuit of delineating how Donald Trump's presidency has had varying effects on Trump properties, and in the aftermath of Trump's attacks on pro athletes, asked teams that had used Trump hotels in the past if they still use them now.
Trump has become embroiled in several feuds with professional athletes in recent weeks, particularly with NFL players who have knelt during the national anthem to protest racial inequality. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!'
'U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going!' James tweeted. Speaking with Sporting News a year ago, Bucks forward Jabari Parker opened up about how he felt after his team stopped staying at Trump hotels on road trips.
The change from the Trump SoHo New York for the 2017-18 season was not the only one.
If that sounds like a lot, it's worth remembering that Milwaukee Bucks forward Steve Novak was charged $20 for a café latte at Trump SoHo previous year. Those include the Pelicans, Dallas Mavericks, Indiana Pacers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors, Memphis Grizzlies, Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets, Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings, Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards.
Trump to nominate White House aide to head DHS
Kelly pushed hard for her selection, making a personal appeal to Mr. She served as a special assistant to former President George W. She also worked for Kelly when he served as secretary of DHS.
"I don't care what haters think - I'm proud to not stay in Trump hotels", the Bucks forward told the Sporting News in November.
'I don't support someone who endorses hate on other people, ' Parker said.
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.
Individual players however, have spoken out as against the president and his hotels.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked if Trump's criticism of National Football League players caused teams to abandon his hotels, but she quickly dismissed the premise. 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. But after President Trump made the decision to run for office in 2015, that number dropped significantly.
