FEC discloses that several sports owners made big donations to Trump
The Federal Election Committee in April disclosed the names of several sports owners who donated money to Trump’s presidential campaign. Among them: owners from each of the four major American professional leagues, though the NFL was represented most prominently. The following NFL owners donated $1 million: Dan Snyder of the Redskins, Shad Khan of the Jaguars, Bob McNair of the Texans, Robert Kraft of the Patriots, Woody Johnson of the Jets and Stan Kroenke of the Rams. In the NBA, Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert donated $750,000 and New York Knicks owner James Dolan donated $1 million through the Madison Square Garden Company. Prominent MLB personnel also supported Trump’s campaign. Marlene Ricketts, the wife of Cubs owner Joe Ricketts, and billionaire hedge fund manager Steven Cohen, who owns a 4 percent stake in the Mets, both donated $1 million.
