NBA teams are refusing to stay in Trump-brand hotels

Three NBA teams are refusing to stay in Trump-branded hotels while they’re traveling to away games.

According to Mediaite, The Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks “have moved away from Trump hotels in New York City and Chicago, which bear Donald Trump‘s name through a licensing agreement,” ESPN reports. The Grizzlies and Mavericks have stayed at Trump SoHo in the past, but they’re searching for other options.

It isn’t a surprise for the Dallas Mavericks, they’re owned by anti-Trump advocate and Hillary Clinton supporter Mark Cuban. In the last year, Cuban attacked Trump for multiple political issues but also personal ones, claiming Trump wasn’t actually a billionaire and was a bad businessman.

“There’s that guy who’ll walk into the bar and say anything to get laid. That’s Donald Trump right now to a T. But it’s all of us who are going to get f*cked,” Cuban told a conference earlier this year.

Another NBA team in the Eastern Conference won’t be staying in Trump’s SoHo when they travel to NYC this season. ESPN doesn’t reveal which team, however. There are seven teams currently confirmed to stay at Trump properties this season. They have no intention of amending their reservations.

Three of the most recognizable head coaches in the NBA have also been vocal on their disapproval of the election results. Detroit’s Stan Van Gundy, Golden State’s Steve Kerr and Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs all stand in opposition to the president-elect.

Many out of town franchises have booked multiple-night stays at Trump SoHo as the hotel becomes “increasingly popular.” It’s unclear if it will continue to be.

Trump believes white nationalism is a winning strategy — because Fox News tells him so

Published

Donald Trump thinks white nationalism is going to win him the 2020 election. This much is clear. Trump's racist Twitter rant on Sunday — in which he suggested that four nonwhite congresswomen, three of whom were born in the United States, are "originally" from somewhere else and should therefore "go back" — might have seemed at first like a spontaneous eruption of racist rage from the simmering bigot in the White House.

Soon, however, it became clear that this was strategic. Trump thinks it's a winning move to echo the claims of David Duke and other white nationalists who believe the United States is for white people. He justified his racism by saying that "many people agree with me," and by continuing to rave on Twitter about how the real purveyors of "racist hatred" are those who look askance at his embracing the rhetoric of Stormfront and the KKK.
