Irish rugby team may rethink staying at Trump tower

October 16th, 2016

In wake of a high-profile presidential election, an Irish parliament member has recommended that Ireland’s rugby team change its plans about staying at Donald Trump’s Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago next month.
The Irish team is to face New Zealand’s All Blacks rugby team at Soldier Field just three days before the Nov. 8 election.
“The rugby team should definitely rethink that decision because there is a very large Irish population in the States and it could prejudice people’s view of Trump,” Irish lawmaker (and  political activist) Brid Smith told the Irish Sun. “It could change how people feel about his role in America and his sexist and racist stance on many issues,” she said.
