Boston Red Sox pitcher throws assistance to Trump, would visit White Home if invited
It’s unclear whether or not the Boston Red Sox would accept an invitation to go to the White Residence, but one player on the Planet Series championship group seems to be prepared to go to Washington.
Red Sox reliever Heath Hembree was leaving a Los Angeles nightclub Sunday evening right after the group defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5, and was asked if he𠆝 go to the White Property.
“Hell yeah!” Hembree told TMZ. “I f— with Trump.”
When asked what he liked about Trump, Hembree responded, 𠇎verything!”
Whether or not Hembree will get a opportunity to go to the White Home with his teammates remains to be noticed.
Boston manager Alex Cora told reporters in a post-game news conference if the team is invited to meet with President Trump, there will be a conversation amongst group members “later on.”
Cora, a native of Puerto Rico, has been essential of Trump — most notably in September soon after the president claimed three,000 individuals did not die right after Hurricane Maria hit the island, although Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello officially updated the estimated quantity of these who died as a result of the storm.
Cora, at the time, mentioned although he doesn’t "agree with a lot of the stuff [Trump] says" about Puerto Rico, he admitted to respecting Trump due to the fact "he’s the president of the United States."
John Henry, the principal owner of the Red Sox, told WEEI the White House has yet to invite the team. He said he believes the players will make the trip if they get an invite.
"This is a special team," he mentioned of the iconic group, whose win Sunday evening marked the team’s ninth Planet Series title in franchise history. "We’ll see what they want to do, but I feel so."
Sports teams have traditionally visited the White Property to celebrate their league’s wins, whether or not it’s the World Series, Super Bowl or Stanley Cup. But, given that Trump took office, some sports players have skipped visiting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue due to the fact of disagreements with Trump and his administration.
The president in June uninvited the Philadelphia Eagles, who had months earlier won Super Bowl LII, since members of the team didn’t agree with Trump’s views that NFL players should stand for the national anthem.
Most recently, the Seattle Storm did not acquire an invitation to go to the White House right after winning the WNBA championship in September, according to The Hill. The Minnesota Lynx didn’t get an invite either as the 2017 champions.
The White Home did not right away respond to Fox News’ request for comment Monday evening.
