The President of the United States, Donald Trump, was greeted with boos by fans who attended yesterday watching game five of the World Series of baseball between the Houston Astros and the Washington Nationals.
When Trump appeared on the stadium's video screens, fans booed him and proliferated shouts of "Lock him up!" In the same way that businessman supporters shouted to support him and discredit Hillary Clinton in the past. elections. Despite the boos, the leader kept smiling and continued to say hello.RELATED
All US presidents, since 1910, have thrown the first ball of the game, but Trump is the first to break this tradition. Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred said Trump said he did not want to participate in this year's World Series ceremony "so that the fan experience was as positive as possible."
Sunday's first launch was carried out by the Washington DC chef and a vocal critic of the president, José Andrés, who has repeatedly opposed Trump's immigration policies.
As The Guardian recalls, also presidents Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon and Bush's father and son were booed when they went to baseball games during their time as presidents.
The President attended the party with his wife, Melania Trump, and several Republican politicians such as Lindsey Graham and David Perdue, among others. The Astros won the victory against the Nationals (7-1) and the sixth game will be held on Tuesday night in Houston.
