Trump considering Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria for ambassador to France

During Jeffrey Loria's time as a Major League Baseball owner, he's rarely been called anything close to an ambassador-for the game, fans of the Miami Marlins, fellow owners or the players.

Loria, a NY art dealer who donated at least $125,000 to President Donald Trump during the campaign, is reportedly in talks to sell the team to a group that includes Joshua Kushner, the brother of Trump son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner. He gave $125,000 to the Trump Victory super-political action committee in 2016 in addition to a $2,700 contribution to Trump's campaign.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said recent reports of the team's potential sale and owner Jeffrey Loria perhaps becoming USA ambassador to France are not a distraction.

The Kushner family will pull out of a $1.6 billion deal to purchase the Miami Marlins if the team's current owner is nominated as the United States ambassador to France, as recent reports suggest. If that is true, we do not want this unrelated transaction to complicate that process and will not pursue it.

Loria bought the Marlins in 2002 for $158 million.

Charles Kushner's son, Jared, is the senior adviser to Trump and is married to the president's daughter, Ivanka.

Chosen as the third-overall pick in the 2006 draft by Tennessee, Young had his moments under center for the Titans. In January Young pleaded no contest to a 2016 drunk driving arrest and was sentenced to 18 months probation.

"Our family has been friends with Jeff Loria for over 30 years, been in business together and even owned an AAA baseball team together", Mr. Meyer said.

Loria, a Jewish art dealer from NY, owned the Montreal Expos (now the Washington Nationals) in the early 2000s.

Loria would be the second sports team owner to be an ambassador for the Trump administration. The Trump Victory Committee is a joint fundraising committee for Donald J. Trump for President, the Republic National Committee, and 11 state Republican committees.

First, it was revealed that Loria had a preliminary agreement in place to sell the franchise to a group led by New York City venture capitalist Joshua Kushner - the brother of President Trump's son-in-law - and Joseph Meyer.
