NBC New York has more to say about the incredible moment:
The World Series champs visited President Donald Trump at the White House on Monday.
Washington Nationals player Ryan Zimmerman gave Trump his own Nats jersey, with "Trump" on the back.
After the Nats walked out to a band playing "Baby Shark," Trump joked about the impeachment inquiry into him.
"America fell in love with Nats baseball. It's all they wanted to talk about. That and impeachment. I like Nats baseball a lot more," he said.
The president then thanked the team and asked them to speak at the podium one by one.
After shaking hands with players, Trump and the Nats went into the White House to the tune of "We Are the Champions."
The Epoch Times also said:
Washington Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman, the first player ever drafted by the Nationals, thanked President Trump during his visit to the White House.
His team was celebrating their first World Series win.
“To see all the fans show up, the parade, looking at the crowd here, we couldn’t have done it without you,” he told the crowd before telling Trump: “I would like to thank you for keeping everyone safe in our country and for continuing to make America the greatest country to live in in the world.”
Zimmerman also presented Trump with a Nationals jersey that said Trump and had the number 45. His comments and presentation of the jersey were met with cheers and applause.
“You’re so nice” is what Trump said in return to Zimmerman.
