The remaining team, the New Orleans Pelicans of the National Basketball Association, has not publicly stated whether they intend to keep patronizing the president's hotels during this season or not.

Among the 123 teams in US 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. The Washington Post reached out to all teams in those three leagues and the NFL (that's 123 teams altogether) and found at least 16 no longer stay at Trump hotels while on the road.

Trump Hotels are falling out of favor with professional sports teams, some of which have cited President Donald Trump's politics as the primary reason.

District Judge Amos Mazzant to make a decision by September 14; otherwise, the league would take the case to the 5th Circuit U.S. The judges voted 2-1 to grant the NFL's emergency request and ordered the U.S.

It's pretty simple."The Post reached out to all 123 teams in the four major US sports leagues to find out how many men's teams are still Trump customers".

Trump properties used to serve as housing for professional sports teams on the road. "He continually offends people, and so people don't want to stay at his hotel".

President Trump has made a point to blur the lines between politics and sports, most recently stating that he believed NFL players that protest during the national anthem should be fired and uninviting Steph Curry to the White House after Curry had already said he would not go. 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. One team, for instance, cited logistical concerns, stating that it was hard to transport the team from one of the hotels to the arena where they were scheduled to play.

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

"I'm proud to not stay in Trump hotels", Parker said. The trend started before Trump denounced football players who refuse to stand for the National Anthem.

"I don't support someone who endorses hate on other people", Parker said. A total of 17 confirmed a visit to a Trump property within the past seven years, but had stopped booking rooms after Trump launched his run for the White House in June 2015.
