Warriors guard Stephen Curry admitted he did not want visit the Trump White House

Sports teams are hitting Donald Trump where it hurts him the most: his wallet.

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.

In all, The Post found that 17 teams from across the four major sports had stayed at Trump properties in recent years.

While NFL teams typically don't stay at luxury hotels like Trump's due to their massive teams and support staff, other teams do.

Most notably, the Trump SoHo hotel, which used to serve as a regular home-away-from-home for National Basketball Association teams staying in NY, has been dropped by at least 11 teams across the National Basketball Association since President Trump began his campaign in 2015. Now, 16 of those teams have confirmed they stopped doing business with Trump. His team quit using Trump SoHo in 2016.

The Toronto Raptors, Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings, and Washington Wizards gave up their SoHo habit after Trump was elected, and have other plans for next season.

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".

National Football League players began protesting police brutality against minorities last season, but since becoming president, Trump has asked teams to punish players who refuse to stand while "The Star-Spangled Banner" is being played.

Yet the departure of these teams might be indicative of a larger trend.

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.

"I'm proud to not stay in Trump hotels", Parker said.

Some Trump properties have continued to do well since his election in November, but according to an Associated Press report, his golf resorts in Scotland recently saw losses double to around $23 million as revenue dropped sharply. "This union will never back down when it comes to protecting the constitutional rights of our players as citizens", NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said in response. Sports teams typically have diverse rosters, including people from a variety of racial backgrounds, which Trump has frequently been hostile toward in the past. 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.
