The Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C. is unlikely to shelter traveling teams in 2017

The Milwaukee Bucks stopped staying at Trump hotels after Trump clinched the GOP nomination.

Numerous professional sports teams across the NBA, MLB, and National Hockey League have all stopped staying at Trump properties since the start of his political career, according to a report from Tim Bontemps and David Farenthold of the Washington Post.

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr on Trump: "He continually offends people, and so people don't want to stay at his hotel".

Donald Trump says 'something has to be done' on North Korea
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders later clarified the president was not declaring war on North Korea. The same day, the U.S. flew two B-1B Lancer bombers near the Korean Peninsula in a show of force.

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.

Though some of the teams told the Post that they stopped staying at Trump hotels because of other reasons, like bus access, several confirmed that they pulled out because of Trump's politics.

According to the Post, a dozen teams have stayed at Trump's SoHo hotel since its opening in 2010. 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. But after President Trump made the decision to run for office in 2015, that number dropped significantly.

DOJ gives last chance warning to NYC for sanctuary city policies
New Orleans, New York and Philadelphia join Chicago and Cook County in remaining out of compliance, the Justice Department said. That's to protect victims and witnesses of crimes who would otherwise be afraid to come forward, city officials say.

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.

And in an interview with Sporting News, Bucks forward Jabari Parker said he was "proud" not to stay at Trump properties. 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.

'I don't support someone who endorses hate on other people, ' Parker said. The trend started before Trump denounced football players who refuse to stand for the National Anthem. "He's attacked everything that I am and believe". My mother didn't get her citizenship until much later in life. "She was paid less because she was a woman".
