Equinox Owner Stephen Ross’ Hampton Fundraiser for Trump Raised $13 Million for His Re-Election

TRUMP’S OPENING remarks at Stephen Ross’ Hampton’s fundraiser for his re-election ridiculed the outcry and boycotts of the gym that occurred earlier this week.

“[Steven] Ross got into a little bit of trouble this week, I said, ‘Steve welcome to the world of politics!” Trump said to more than 500 people at the Bridgehampton event according to the Los Angeles Blade. The event was hosted at the mansion of Joe Farrel, a developer and associate of Stephen Ross. 

The Los Angeles Blade reported:

While that was happening, protesters were gathering in front of Equinox and SoulCycle facilities around the nation, including Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.

According to Adam Bass and Gonzalo Garcia, organizers of the boycott call and protest, about 100 people gathered during the three hour event, including some West Hollywood officials.

Asked why Equinox’s corporate support by Ross for Donald Trump matters more than major donations to Republicans made by other corporations (Facebook, PayPal, etc), Gonzalo said “Ross is a hypocrite. If he claims to support racial equality, women’s rights and environment issues why is he giving to Trump; he has proven how opposed he is to all of those issues,” he said.
