WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump mostly stuck to sports Monday while honoring the World Series champion Washington Nationals, who had a handful of players skip the White House visit.
Amid an impeachment inquiry on Capitol Hill and Washington feting its first Major League Baseball champion since 1924, Trump hugged Kurt Suzuki after the catcher put on a Make America Great Again hat. Trump received a No. 45 Nationals jersey from first baseman Ryan Zimmerman, applauding the teams first title and calling it a comeback story for the ages.
Everyone fell in love with Nats baseball, Trump said during the half-hour ceremony on the South Lawn attended by thousands of fans. Thats all they wanted to talk about that and impeachment. I like Nats baseball more.
