Palm Beach Daily News reports that a whopping 16 charities are refusing to hold previously scheduled events at President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.

Trump's comments in defense of white supremacists after the Charlottesville terror attack have made him radioactive across the political spectrum.

The local outlet confirms that of all charities contacted with events scheduled at Mar-a-Lago, only five have agreed to go through with them. Four are either undecided or haven't yet responded to requests for comments.

The names of charities that have pulled out are listed below. Palm Beach Daily News will be updating its website with additional names should more confirm they're pulling out or return requests for comment.

Couldn't get better news! Hit that scumbag in his pocket! We need to find out which five are continuing there, so that we can boycott them.

I have already boycotted these charities anyway.
And will continue to boycott them on a personal level because they are getting too political for me

Lol... Salvation Army, Red Cross, Leukemia and lymphoma society (just to name a few) are too political?

I hope whoever thinks the Red Cross is too political never needs blood:

Don't even waste your time with her. I learned the hard way.

Seriously? How does one even boycott a blood drive or autism?

I am personally boycotting them. Meaning I won't donate or volunteer for their causes and it's not because of this.
And I cannot donate blood anyway. I am not allowed too.

She is a complete waste of time. And her statement, as always, is completely illogical.

I hope she carries a card stating that she refuses to receive blood.. lol.
