Seated comfortably in a VIP suite inside Truist Park stadium with his wife Melania, candidate for Georgia Senate Herschel Walker, and a dedicated cohort of Secret Service agents, President Trump joined elated fans in doing the Braves’ signature “Tomahawk chop” at Game 4 of the World Series.
In a statement published before his appearance, President Trump thanked Major League Baseball’s commissioner Rob Manfred and New York Yankee’s club President Randy Levine for the invitation.
“Melania and I are looking forward to a wonderful evening watching two great teams,” he said.
Establishment news outlet USA Today attempted to paint President Trump’s statement as a lie, claiming he was not formally invited, but rather, asked the club to attend.
They did concede however that the trip “is among the more notable public appearances he’s made” since moving back to Florida, and the beginning of many more to come as he continues to eye reelection in 2024.
In April, President Trump called for a boycott of the MLB after they announced they were moving the All-Star game out of Georgia in response to a new election integrity law they deemed discriminatory and restrictive.
At the time, President Trump noted that “baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans,” due to poisonous politics and a fear of the “radical left Democrats.”
“Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with free and fair elections,” President Trump said. “Are you listening Coke, Delta and all?”
Since then, MLB brought the game back to Atlanta which was symbolically attended by the 45th president.
