Former President Donald Trump issued a statement late Friday evening, calling on his supporters to boycott Major League Baseball after the league caved to demands from left-wing activists upset about the state of Georgia's new voter integrity law.
MLB Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. announced Friday that the league had decided to move both their All-Star Game and their draft festivities from Atlanta as a way of standing in solidarity with those who were claiming the new Georgia law would disenfranchise voters. Those claims have been debunked, with even the Washington Post awarding President Joe Biden "Four Pinocchios" for lying about the law in a nationally televised interview.
On Friday evening, former President Donald Trump said it was time citizens stood up to "radical left Democrats" who use bullying tactics of this nature.
"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," the former president said in a statement. "Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!"
President Trump's son, Donald Trump, Jr., also commented on the issue Friday, calling on lawmakers to remove the anti-trust exemption enjoyed by Major League Baseball.
