Pro-Sports Teams Drop Trump Hotels
President Trump has been riling up pro athletes with disinvitations to the White House and attacks on police brutality protests. As one team estimated, it previously spent around $20,000 per night in rooms and food at the Trump Soho.


The company recalled 90,000 Model S sedans worldwide in 2015 over a possible defect in the front seat belt assembly and a year earlier had recalled 29,222 of the same model over a charging defect that posed a fire hazard. In April 2016, around 2,700 vehicles were recalled because the carmaker said testing had revealed that the third row could slide forward during a crash. Owners can take their Model X to a dealer for repairs or contact Tesla's mobile fix units.

The company started to inform customers about the recall on Thursday. (Even with this issue, the seat is strong enough for a single adult or two children.) You may also continue to use child seats using the LATCH anchors, as these anchors are attached to the seat base and not the seat back.
