Georgia senator Kelly Loeffler, a co-owner of the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream and a staunch ally of Donald Trump, says the league’s social justice efforts could exclude some fans.
“I think a lot of people feel that they may not have a place,” Loeffler told ESPN on Tuesday. “They may feel excluded from this sport and other sports that make them feel like American values aren’t at the core of what we’re doing here.”
Fifteen mayors signed on to a letter asking the Trump administration to withdraw federal law enforcement officers from Portland, Oregon, and abandon plans to send federal agents to other Democratic-controlled cities.
The letter, which was dated Monday, was signed by the mayors of Portland, Seattle, Atlanta, Chicago, Washington, DC, Boston, Philadelphia, Denver, Los Angeles, San Jose, Oakland, Tucson, Sacramento, Phoenix and Kansas City, Missiouri.
