The Washington Post reported on Thursday that none of the 105 franchises across four major sports leagues that responded to the newspaper's survey said they stayed at a Trump hotel when traveling.
Most of the teams stopped visiting Trump properties within the past year, while others like the NBA's Dallas Mavericks and Indiana Pacers reportedly began staying elsewhere as early as 2014.
The NFL, MLB, NHL and National Basketball Association teams from that confirmed Trump hotel stays, all but one said they're no longer checking into Trump's hotels while traveling the country for road games. One, for instance, said it was hard to get team buses in and out of Lower Manhattan. Not a single team confirmed its players stay at Trump properties.
"The president has seemingly made a point of dividing us as best he can", Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.
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.
Trump has had a contentious relationship with pro sports leagues, criticizing the NFL for allowing players to sit or kneel in protest during the national anthem and publicly feuding with Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry.
Trump last month disinvited the Golden State Warriors to the White House after guard Stephen Curry, LeBron James and other pro athletes condemned Trump's comment during a political rally in Alabama calling for National Football League owners to fire any "son of a bitch" who kneeled during "The Star-Spangled Banner". Just two days earlier, James called Trump a "bum" for rescinding the invite.
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'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".
The Post reached out to all 123 teams in the four major USA sports leagues to find out how many men's teams are still Trump customers.
Eighteen teams declined to respond to The Washington Post's survey and 71 of the responses said their teams hadn't stayed at a Trump hotel within the last seven years.
And in an interview with Sporting News, Bucks forward Jabari Parker said he was "proud" not to stay at Trump properties. "I don't support someone who endorses hate on other people". 'He ran his campaign on hate. I was named by a Muslim man. She is basically an immigrant because she came from Tonga.
