Trump properties used to serve as housing for professional sports teams on the road.

Pro sports teams from the NBA, MLB, and National Hockey League have stopped staying at Trump-owned hotels.

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. While the NFL has relationship with Marriott, and while the league necessarily requires more rooms based on the sizes of the roster, the National Basketball Association in particular enjoyed VIP status at Trump properties.

"Since Donald Trump announced his candidacy in June 2015, foot traffic to Trump-branded hotels, casinos and golf courses in the US has been down", the firm said. But some coaches and players have made it clear that Trump's politics definitely factors into their decision to stay elsewhere.

On Wednesday, President Trump said former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick should've been suspended for kneeling during the national anthem, his latest public foray into sports and the ongoing protests against racial inequality.
