President Donald Trump is putting together an advisory group to help re-open the economy when the time comes. The group includes WWE’s CEO, Vince McMahon, and UFC’s President, Dana White among other heads of professional sports leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, MLS, NHL, PGA, LPGA, Nascar, etc…).
In a press conference, President Donald Trump said the following:
“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.”
Trump proceeded naming several individuals:
“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.”
It has not yet been made clear what capacity the group will serve in. On April 4th, The President had a conference call with the heads of major sports leagues, which included most of the same people, including Vince McMahon and Dana White.
