Astros vs Nationals Game 5 The president's 'enemy' chef does ceremonial pitching
Donald Trump in Nationals Park for Game 5.
The president of the United States, Donald Trump, fulfilled his promise to attend Game 5 of the 2019 World Series between the Houston Astros and the Washington Nationals, but he was left wanting to make the first pitch.RELATED
The Nationals chose one of Trump's 'enemies', chef Jos Andrs, who has been very critical of the immigration policies of the president of the United States. According to various reports, Trump arrived after the start to avoid affecting fans' access to the stadium.
Trump was placed in a box for first base accompanied by his wife Melania, five army veterans and Senators Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio, in addition to Congressman Kevin Brady.
After the third inning, at the change of the entrance, Trump's box appeared on the giant screen of the stadium and was booed by fans who gathered at Nationals Park.
