Trump Meets With Sports Commissioners to Discuss Filling Stadiums

The president convened more than a dozen advisory groups covering different sectors of the economy. Among them was a sports-focused council that featured commissioners of the NBA, WNBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, Major League Soccer, UFC, the PGA and the LPGA.

Other participants included New England Patriots Owner Robert Kraft and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones — both Trump donors — as well as Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Vince McMahon, CEO of WWE and husband of former Trump administration official Linda McMahon.

The group held its first call on Wednesday afternoon and discussed the feasibility of restarting or holding sporting events in the coming weeks and months. The sports executives on the call offered “innovative input on social distancing guidelines,” the White House said in a readout.

Trump continues to remain optimistic that the NFL will be able to start its season in September as regularly scheduled.

I could care less…as a white woman, (interacial family) in this country these so called sports teams are just as much to blame for all this divide as the media, Dems and rioters. Let them fail!
