President Trump Calls For Boycott of MLB Over Moving All-Star Game From Atlanta Over Voter Law (TWEETS)
President Donald Trump may not be on Twitter anymore, but he is still making his voice heard by other means.
On Friday, the former President called for a boycott of Major League Baseball after it decided to move its All-Star Game out of Georgia in protest of the state’s new bill signed into law that tightens voting restrictions.
“Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections,” Trump said in a statement released by Save America PAC.
“Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!” he added, referencing other companies that have criticized the new law.
MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement that the decision was “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport” in light of Gov. Brian Kemp’s (R) signing of the legislation.
“Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box,” Manfred said in a statement.
