It should be noted this would happen no matter where Fowler played.

Fowler's wife, Darya Baghbani, was born in Iran, one of seven majority-Muslim countries that Trump's executive order restricted visas from.

Overall, the Chinese smartphone market grew immensely over the course of 2016 and recorded an 11.4-percent year-over-year growth. The decline of Apple's sales may have also been due to consumers anticipation of the launch of the brand new iPhone 8 this 2017.

New Cardinals outfielder Dexter Fowler has been in spring training with his new club for a few days now, and over the weekend he managed to upset some fans. These assholes demanded Fowler stick to baseball instead of talking about an issue that directly affects the lives of his wife, daughter and extended family. "Especially anytime you're not able to see family, it's unfortunate", Fowler said.

This guarded expression of concern - which, despite some headlines linking the comments to Trump, didn't even mention the president by name - was too much for some Cardinals fans. Fowler spoke out against Trump in an interview with ESPN.com and called the ban "unfortunate" as they initially planned on traveling to Iran to visit family. Fowler addressed the reaction on his Twitter.

Fowler spent 2016 on the Cubs roster, helping them to win their first World Series since 1908 before departing in the offseason to sign a 5-year, $82.5 million dollar contract with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fowler, to his credit, responded with graciousness. "That's it. So, I think it's just ignorant people coming at me like that and not reading the article". "I'm not the sensitive one". It's totally a fair point!
