Of the 105 responses the paper got, no teams confirmed they stayed at facilities owned - and now in trust - by the American president.

According to The Post, Trump properties were never popular among National Football League teams.

The newspaper reported that 16 of the 17 NFL, NBA, MLB and National Hockey League teams that stayed at Trump hotels in recent years confirmed they will be checking in at other properties when traveling.

Professional sports teams across the nation have stopped staying at Trump hotels, according to a Washington Post investigation, with many citing the president's divisiveness.

Trump has been at odds with professional sports teams and leagues throughout his presidency.

The defending National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors decided they were not going to make a traditional visit to the White House to protest Trump policies hours before the president "rescinded" an invitation.

The Post reached out to all 123 teams in the four major USA sports leagues to find out how many teams are still Trump customers. Speaking with Sporting News past year, Bucks forward Jabari Parker opened up about how he felt after his team stopped staying at Trump hotels on road trips.

While NFL teams typically don't stay at luxury hotels like Trump's due to their massive teams and support staff, other teams do. He has called for NFL teams to fire players who do not stand for the American national anthem at games and demanded the firing of ESPN host Jemele Hill for a tweet he found offensive.

"I don't care what haters think - I'm proud to not stay in Trump hotels", the Bucks forward told the Sporting News in November.

When Trump described any athlete that takes part in a silent protest as a "son of a b****" during a campaign rally last month, the NFL Players Association condemned the remarks.

"The president has repeatedly said he doesn't care about his business, he cares about the country", Sanders said in an email.

'I don't support someone who endorses hate on other people, ' Parker said. "He's attacked everything that I am and believe".
