Donald Trump Rumors
Tom Orsborn: Pop says pols who support Trump’s big lie that he won the election are “unbelievably dangerous.” Pop: “What purpose does that do to keep people in office that are willing to out & out lie about things they know are untrue and dangerous for our society? It just boggles my mind.”
Tom Orsborn: Asked if Spurs owners have ever asked him to “tone it down,” Pop said: “The Holt family and our ownership group has been absolutely 100% perfect in not putting on any pressure or doing anything that would keep any of us from expressing our ideas.”
According to an online database maintained by the nonprofit, nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, former Spurs chairwoman Julianna Hawn Holt has made multiple donations to Trump’s campaigns, including in 2020, when she also contributed to Republican Georgia U.S. Senate candidates Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.
No NBA team visited the White House during the Trump administration and some weren’t invited at all. In the case of the Golden State Warriors, the invite was withdrawn. The last team to attend was LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Nov. 10, 2016, when Barack Obama was in office.
