Donald Trump has been putting together a team of sports owners to advise him on the economy when he decides to re-open the country. Trump referenced “the great” Vince McMahon during a press conference earlier today, which you can see below. He said,
“In sports, we want to get our sports back, so important. These will be some separate calls. Some will be together, by the way, lists, and some will be separate. But we have to get our sports back. I’m tired of watching baseball games that are 14 years old. But I haven’t actually had too much time to watch. I would say maybe I watch one batter and then I get back to work.
The NBA, Adam Silver; the Major League Baseball. We miss our baseball — this is baseball season right here. Rob Manfred, thank you very much. NFL, Roger Goodell, thank you Roger. UFC, Dana White — great Dana White. PGA, Jay Monahan. LPGA, Michael Whan. USDA – Patrick Galbraith. Major League Soccer – Don Garber. WWE, the great Vince McMahon. NASCAR, Lesa Kennedy, thank you Lisa. NHL, Gary Bettman. From the New England Patriots, Bob Kraft, Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban.”
