Raptors no longer staying at Trump-owned NY hotel

Raptors no longer staying at Trump-owned NY hotel”

According to The Post, Trump properties were never popular among National Football League teams.

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.

According to the Post, a dozen teams have stayed at Trump's SoHo hotel since its opening in 2010.

"The president has seemingly made a point of dividing us as best he can", Kerr told the Post.

Most notably, the Trump SoHo hotel, which used to serve as a regular home-away-from-home for National Basketball Association teams staying in NY, has been dropped by at least 11 teams across the National Basketball Association since President Trump began his campaign in 2015.

Though 12 teams used to stay at the Manhattan hotel, according to the report, 11 of them made different arrangements for the upcoming season, including the Raptors.

'U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going!' James tweeted.

Still, it's not clear if teams' decisions to take their business away from Trump properties is explicitly due to the president's politics - numerous teams Farenthold interviewed declined to comment on the specifics of why they were going elsewhere.

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.

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.

Of the teams that responded, 18 declined to comment and 71 indicated that they hadn't stayed at Trump hotels in recent years.

"The president has repeatedly said he doesn't care about his business, he cares about the country", Sanders wrote the newspaper in an email.

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". "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.
