>>Trump Tells Commissioners He Is Optimistic Pro Sports Can Return Soon
(Washington, DC) — President Donald Trump told league sports commissioners in a weekend conference call he is optimistic pro sports can return to having fans in the stands by August or September and is confident the NFL will kickoff its schedule as planned. “I can’t tell you a date, but I think it’s going to be sooner rather than later.” Trump said. Medical experts have not appraised whether that timespan is achievable as the United States copes with the coronavirus outbreak. Those on the call included the NFL’s Roger Goodell, MLB’s Rob Manfred, NBA’s Adam Silver, NHL’s Gary Bettman and the MLS’s Don Garber. “The commissioners thanked President Trump for his national leadership and for his interest in the sports industry,” the White House press pool released in a statement after the meeting.
