Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross Defends President Trump After Comments by WR Kenny Stills

Politics are getting in the way of Dolphins training camp, as Fins owner Stephen Ross is defending his support of longtime friend Donald Trump after one of the players on the team spoke out against the President.

The Associated Press reports that Ross is coming to the President’s defense following comments by wide out Kenny Stills.

The comments Wednesday followed a report by the Washington Post that Ross plans to host a fundraiser for the president.

Stills tweeted a screen capture from Ross’ anti-racism RISE initiative’s website and wrote, “You can’t have a non profit with this mission statement then open your doors to Trump.”

The mission statement says RISE “educates and empowers the sports community to eliminate racial discrimination, champion social justice and improve race relations.”

Ross’ fundraiser is scheduled for Friday at his home on Long Island, the Post said.

“I always have been an active participant in the democratic process,” Ross said in a statement.
