Could one of our American supporters take a look at the bottom of page 59 of this document which is list of donations made to Donald Trump's inauguration?  The name seems to ring a bell but not sure if this person is related to our owner.

Might be an unlikely coincidence but I would assume that it is our esteemed owner.  He lives in Naples Florida and Pakistani Khans aren't a significant portion of American society.

Stan Kroenke did the same thing. I suspect that if you name an English football club owner who also owns an American sports franchise you'll find he gave money to Trump.

  • just like that
Not a partisan political thing. The NFL is considered a non-profit by the American government. Owning a franchise -- even a bad one -- is a license to print money. The NFL owners have a vested interest in making nice to whoever is in the White House. Had Trump lost, the same amount of money would have gone to Clinton's Inaug.

Oh, if you're English and wondering why so much money is devoted to this event, it's because no tax money is spent for the balls and concerts related to it. It's all paid for by contributions.

Thanks for the added insight.
