Trump: Football should begin on time in the Fall

Earlier today President Trump held a conference call with leadership of most of the major pro sports.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Adrian Wojnarowski are reporting that Trump told commissioners he is hopeful "to have fans back in the stadiums and arenas by August and September."

ESPN's reporting added:

Trump also raised the idea of the leagues working together to lobby for tax credits that used to exists for fans, such as the ability to deduct concessions and tickets from taxes, sources said. That would be a way for leagues to jumpstart fans ability to return to stadium in a difficult economy.

Trump will hold a press conference at 3:30ET at the White House where he is expected to expand upon his thoughts.

More to come.
