On Monday, the World Series Champions Washington Nationals visited President Donald Trump at the White House. At one point during the event, Washington Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki decided to surprise the attendees by coming forward in front of his team and the media wearing a 'Make America Great Again' hat.
“I love you all," Suzuki told the crowd as he lifted his arms in triumph.

President Trump also enjoyed the moment as he gave Suzuki a hug:

The move by Suzuki shocked many considering sports athletes are so nervous to voice their political support of President Trump in fear that the left wing mob will slander them and ruin their image.
The liberal players never seem to shy away from blasting the President considering they get propped up by the liberal media. Last week, Nationals pitcher Sean Doolittle announced he would not be attending the White House even. He said in a statement: “There’s a lot of things, policies that I disagree with, but at the end of the day, it has more to do with the divisive rhetoric and the enabling of conspiracy theories and widening the divide in this country. My wife and I stand for inclusion and acceptance, and we’ve done work with refugees, people that come from, you know, the ‘s***hole countries.’ At the end of the day, as much as I wanted to be there with my teammates and share that experience with my teammates, I can’t do it. I just can’t do it.”
He added, “People say you should go because it’s about respecting the office of the president. And I think over the course of his time in office he’s done a lot of things that maybe don’t respect the office.”

Doolittle spoke about racism and white supremacy as well, saying “The rhetoric, time and time again, has enabled those kind of behaviors. That never really went away, but it feels like now people with those beliefs, they maybe feel a little bit more empowered. They feel like they have a path, maybe. I don’t want to hang out with somebody who talks like that.”
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Prior to that, in June 2018 the Trump White House announced the Philadelphia Eagles were officially disinvited from the White House after only a few committed to visit to celebrate their Super Bowl victory. That prompted then-Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James during the NBA Finals between the Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors to state, “I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway. So it won’t be Golden State or Cleveland going.”
U.S. Women’s Soccer Team co-captain Megan Rapinoe infamously stated, “I’m not going to the f—— White House.” Rapinoe’s comment triggered Trump to tweet, “Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team. Be proud of the Flag that you wear. The USA is doing GREAT!”
