The upscale gym and indoor cycling chain, whose clients have included Hollywood celebrities and even Michelle Obama, faced backlash after the Washington Post reported that Ross, who is chairman of the brands' parent, Related Companies, will host an event for Trump supporters at his home on Friday.

Ross and his companies have come under scorching attack on social media since news of the fundraiser broke.

She also pledged not to visit Hudson Yards, a neighborhood in Manhattan that was developed by Ross' company.

In the interview, Ross voiced support for Trump's confrontational approach to trade relations with China.

Brzezinski, on Thursday, suggested that Ross' fundraiser showed that he didn't have a "soul". Ross also owns the Miami Dolphins football team.

Equinox is not the only business connected to The Related Companies which has been impacted by the announcement of the fundraiser.

Soul Cycle tweeted on Wednesday that it "in no way endorses" Ross's fundraiser and saying that Ross is merely a "passive investor" in the company.

"At Town Sports International gyms, we strive to maintain and foster all-embracing spaces of inclusion and acceptance", CEO Patrick Walsh said in a statement.

Several senior members of the administration, party and campaign are scheduled to appear, as are some Trump family members, according to invitations obtained by The Post.

Another fundraiser is scheduled for Friday at the Bridgehampton home of Joe Farrell, a NY real estate developer.

"Everyone who cancels their Equinox and SoulCycle memberships, meet me at the library. bring weights", tweeted model Chrissy Teigen, who is a vocal critic of the United States president. Tickets are priced at $5,600 per couple for the general reception, $11,200 per couple for the VIP reception and $35,000 per couple for a photo opportunity.

Money raised at the two fundraisers in the Hamptons will go toward Trump Victory, a fundraising committee for the Trump 2020 campaign and the Republican National Committee.

"I have always been an active participant in the democratic process".
