President Donald Trump slammed ESPN in a Friday morning tweet and demanded the network issue an apology for an “untruth.”
ESPN is paying a really big price for its politics (and bad programming). People are dumping it in RECORD numbers. Apologize for untruth!

ESPN’s “SportsCenter” host Jemele Hill had tweeted this week that Trump was a “white supremacist” and “bigot,” ABC News reported. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called Hill’s remarks “outrageous,” according to the network news.
Hill, who is African-American, later publicly apologized for any trouble she created for ESPN.
