America’s national pastime could be in trouble after they went completely “woke”.
Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred has decided to move the 2021 All-Star game out of Atlanta because of Georgia’s new voting law.
After the MLB’s decision to move the All-Star game was announced, President Trump released a statement that read ” boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with free and fair election”.
Trump then proceeded to call out Coke and Delta for also bowing down to radical Democrats.
Here’s his full statement below:

Fox News covered Trump’s statement and shared these details:
President Donald Trump fired a high, hard fastball at Major League Baseball on Friday night, urging fans to boycott the “national pastime” over its decision to pull this year’s All-Star Game from the Atlanta area.
Trump asserted MLB’s leadership was “afraid of the Radical Left Democrats,” claiming the party pressured MLB to relocate its mid-summer game because of Georgia’s new election law, recently signed by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.
The former president also took aim at large “woke” corporations that issued statements against the Georgia law.
“Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans,” Trump wrote, “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 New York Post chipped in too:
President Trump called Friday night for a boycott of Major League Baseball, Coke and Delta Airlines — and all other companies that have pulled out of Georgia or otherwise protested the state’s controversial new voting reform bill.
The Republican called for a boycott in a statement he issued hours after MLB announced it is pulling the All-Star Game from Atlanta in response to the bill, which President Biden has labeled “Jim Crow in the 21st century.”
“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 ID, which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections,” Trump’s statement read.
Don Jr. wasn’t silent either:
Republicans in Congress should immediately move to repeal the @MLB's anti-trust exemption.
