LeBron James, Other Players Boycott Trump Hotel in NYC


ESPN is reporting that a group of professional basketball players with the Cleveland Cavaliers will avoid staying at a Trump hotel in New York City. The Trump SoHo hotel in lower Manhattan will be boycotted by some members of the team when they arrive to take on the New York Knicks.

The Cavs have a contract with the hotel in question. LeBron James publicly endorsed Hillary Clinton for President in October as the Cavs owner showed support for Trump. Since Lebron James is bringing billions to the organization and this year led them to a historic comeback championship, it’s unlikely the owner of the Cavs will have anything to say about this latest example of James’ activism.
