MLB Players React to Donald Trump’s Win (TWEETS)
A shockwave was felt around the world in the early morning hours of Wednesday, when Donald Trump was announced to be the 45th president of the United States.
Political pollsters around the country failed miserably as they had Trump as an overwhelming underdog to win the election. In the end, Trump not only won, but absolutely spanked Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
The results of last night’s election was a tough pill to swallow for some Major League Baseball players, while others celebrated. Here are some of the reactions:
Pray for our country and our leadership.
