Trump World Series news – 'Tomahawk chop' peformed by Donald with Atlanta Braves fans during Game 4 vs Houston Astros

DONALD Trump delighted fans at Game Four of the World Series on Saturday in Atlanta between the Braves and Houston Astros.

Former President Trump, who was booed when he last attended a World Series game in 2019, participated in the "tomahawk chop" cheer that many have criticized for being an offensive stereotype of Native American culture.

He had previously said he is expecting a "great reception" at the game according to reports.

Braves CEO Terry McGuirk said earlier this week Donald reached out to the team for tickets for tonight's huge game, according to USA Today. The Braves currently lead the series 3-1 after beating the Astros on Saturday night.

Trump released a statement in a mass email to his supporters Saturday about his planned World Series appearance:

“Looking forward to being at the World Series in Atlanta tonight. Thank you to the Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred, and Randy Levine of the New York Yankees, for the invite. Melania and I are looking forward to a wonderful evening watching two great teams!”

MLB denied making the invitation and said in a statement, “He requested to attend the game.”

    TRUMP LABELS BIDEN ADMINISTRATION 'WORST PRESIDENCY IN HISTORY'

    On Justice with Judge Jeanine, Trump graded the Biden administration as a failure.

    "It's probably the worst presidency in history. I can't imagine. I used to say Jimmy Carter," Trump said, noting he was also "not a big fan of Bush getting us into the middle east."

    When asked, he said he would grade Biden with an "F."

    "And not an F-plus," Trump added.

    "It's a failed administration, it's a disaster."

    TRUMP PLANNING RALLY TO SUPPORT YOUNGKIN, CHALLENGE MCAULIFFE

    Donald Trump plans to hold a tele-rally for Glenn Youngkin Monday night, Bloomberg reports.

    The news outlet reports the former president will take part in the call with supporters to generate support for the candidate, according to a person familiar with his plans. 

    Youngkin is being challenged by Democrat Terry McAuliffe, the former Virginia governor.

    Polls indicate the race in a dead-heat in the final stretch after McAuliffe had previously held a consistent lead.

    FORMER CHIEF OF STAFF CONVINCED TRUMP WILL RUN IN 2024

    Donald Trump’s former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is convinced the one-time president will run for the White House in 2024.

    Meadows, a staunch ally of the former president, told SiriusXM’s The Wilkow Majority on Thursday that he would bet all of his money on another bid for the White House by Trump.

    “If I were a betting, man … I would tell you to loan me all your money,” he said. “I would put all my money in, and I would bet that he’s running again. “

    Meadows added that he reached this conclusion after speaking to the former president “multiple” times a week. “He’s in, and we will count on him running,” he added.

    ANTI-TRUMP REPUBLICANS BEHIND TIKI TORCHES IN VIRGINIA

    A group of mostly Republican critics of former President Donald Trump claimed responsibility on Friday for a demonstration in the Virginia governor’s campaign that recalled an infamous 2017 rally in the state.

    The Lincoln Project said it was behind the use of tiki torches outside a Republican candidate’s bus that mimicked the rally by white supremacists in Charlottesville.

    The earlier event turned deadly when a car driven into a crowd by a self-described neo-Nazi killed a counter-protester.

    Tuesday’s close vote between Republican former private-equity executive Glenn Youngkin and Democrat Terry McAuliffe, a former governor, is widely seen as a foretaste of next year’s midterm elections.

    “Today’s demonstration was our way of reminding Virginians what happened in Charlottesville four years ago, the Republican Party’s embrace of those values and Glenn Youngkin’s failure to condemn it,” the Lincoln Project said in a statement.

    Beta testing is expected to take place in November 2021, though an exact date has not yet been announced.

    Prior to the announcement of his own service, Trump was seen praising Nigeria for banning Twitter in their county and expressed remorse for not thinking of doing the same, adding he could get another chance in a potential 2024 run.

    WHAT IS THE SONG 'LET'S GO BRANDON' ABOUT?

    Bryson Gray is a Christian Conservative Artist, producer and personality.

    Bryson’s new song Let’s Go Brandon, is said to be an anti President Joe Biden song.

    The song takes shots at Biden regarding his chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal, cognitive ability, and handling of the coronavirus.

    The rap even contains audio from Biden, and features lyrics like “pandemic ain’t real”.

    Gray’s song’s title draws inspiration from the “F*** Joe Biden” chant at the Nascar race won by Brandon Brown in early October, 2021, which aired on NBC. 

    An NBC reporter at the event said she heard Let’s Go Brandon, after Brown’s victory.

    However,  it was later pointed out that the audience actually chanted “F*** Joe Biden”.

    TRUMP TAKES CREDIT FOR VACCINES BUT SLAMS MANDATES

    On Judge Jeanine, Trump bragged about his work on the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines against Covid-19.

    "I got the vaccine done, three vaccines, in less than nine months," Trump said.

    However, he told Jeanine Pirro, he doesn't support vaccine mandates.

    "They do work, and I'm very proud of them, but people shouldn't be forced to take them," he said.

    TRUMP ON JUDGE JEANINE: 'WE ARE ENERGY INDEPENDENT NO LONGER'

    In a recent appearance on Jeanine Pirro's show Judge Jeanine, former President Donald Trump bemoaned President Joe Biden's energy policies.

    "One of the things I was most proud about, our country became energy independent," Trump said.

    Trump was likely referring to the two years of his presidency, 2019 and 2020, where US energy production was higher than US energy consumption.

    The pandemic accounted for much of that disparity in 2020, when lockdowns halted regular commutes–and fossil fuel usage–for much of the country.

    "But Biden opened up this big mess of pipeline all over Europe, but he closed down the XL," Trump continued.

    Biden signed a number of environmentally-focused executive orders when he took office, including halting work on the Keystone XL pipeline.

    WILL TRUMP RUN FOR THE 2024 PRESIDENCY?

    Donald Trump has not said whether or not he will contest the 2024 presidency but speculation is constantly growing.

    Every time he speaks to his faithful supporters he indicates he is at the very least considering a bid to regain the White House.

    He has said the final decision will be made after next year’s mid-term elections.

    While President Joe Biden is on the back foot and is suffering a slump in the polls that could all change in a year.

    The results of the midterms will provide a good gauge on how well things are going and if there is a realistic chance Trump could win a second term.

    TRUMP SELLS 'LET’S GO BRANDON' T-SHIRTS

    Trump hasn’t missed the moment to join the growing Let’s Go Brandon surge.

    His Save America PAC now sells a $45 T-shirt featuring “Let’s go Brandon” above an American flag.

    One message to supporters reads, #FJB or LETS GO BRANDON? Either way, President Trump wants YOU to have our ICONIC new shirt.

    Separately, T-shirts are popping up in storefronts with the slogan and the NASCAR logo.

    HOW MANY TIMES WAS TRUMP IMPEACHED?

    On December 18, 2019, an action on impeachment was initiated when the House of Representatives approved articles of impeachment on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

    They pointed to Trump pressuring Ukraine to investigate 2020 political rival Biden while withholding as leverage military aid, as well as attempting to block a House investigation.

    Democrats in the House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump for a second time after the events at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.

    Trump is the first president in US history to be impeached twice after the House charged him with “incitement of insurrection” over the US Capitol siege on January 13, 2021.

    SPECTRUM HEALTH TO TEST COVID DRUG GIVEN TO TRUMP

    Spectrum Health has said it wants to recruit Covid-19 inpatients for a clinical study using a drug previously given to President Donald Trump.

    WHAT IS TRUMP TRYING TO KEEP PRIVATE FROM INVESTIGATORS?

    The records Trump wants kept from investigators include “daily presidential diaries, schedules, appointments showing White House visitors, activity logs call logs,” according to the court filing by the National Archives.

    The records could shed light on “what was occurring at the White House immediately before, during and after the January 6 attack,” according to the filing.

    Trump is also seeking to block access to documents from binders kept by former Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

    A November 4 hearing has been scheduled to consider Trump’s claim of executive privilege.

    TRUMP WANTS CALL LOGS HIDDEN FROM INSURRECTION COMMITTEE

    Former President Donald Trump is trying to block documents including call logs, drafts of remarks and speeches and handwritten notes from his chief of staff relating to the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection from being released to the committee investigating the riot, the National Archives revealed in a court filing early Saturday.

    Trump has sued to prevent the National Archives from transmitting those documents, and thousands more, to the House committee investigating the attack.

    President Joe Biden declined to assert executive privilege on most of Trump’s records after determining that doing so is not in the best interests of the United States.

    The Saturday filing, which came as part of the National Archives and Record Administration’s opposition to Trump’s lawsuit, details the effort the agency has undertaken to identify records from the Trump White House in response to a broad, 13-page request from the House committee for documents pertaining to the insurrection and Trump’s efforts to undermine the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election.

    IS TRUMP GOOD LUCK FOR THE ASTROS?

    The last time the Astros were in the World Series, they won a game with Donald Trump in attendance.

    However, they ultimately lost the series, and shortly after were revealed as having stolen signs in the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

    No doubt they’ll be hoping the former president can once again bring them luck tonight.

    MLB COMMISSIONER CONDONES CHOP: 'END OF THE STORY'

    "The Native American community in that region is wholly supportive of the Braves program, including the chop," Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred reportedly told the Washington Post.

    "For me, that's kind of the end of the story.

    "In Atlanta, they've done a great job with the Native Americans. The Native American community is the most important group to decide whether it's appropriate or not," Manfred said.

    GETTR CEO SPEAKS OUT ON TRUMP'S TRUTH SOCIAL

    Trump described his upcoming site as an unfiltered forum to allow for open discourse and encourage free speech, much like social media platform GETTR.

    GETTR is run by CEO Jason Miller – who previously worked for President Trump as his senior adviser.

    Despite the seeming similarities between the two platforms, Miller says that he is not worried and in fact "welcomes" the competition Truth Social will bring.

    "I welcome President Trump back to the social media fray and I think it's really important that he is getting his voice back. We welcome the competition," Miller told The Sun.

    WILL TRUMP BE ALLOWED BACK ON SOCIAL MEDIA?

    Back in January 2021, Twitter said in a statement that they banned his account "due to the risk of further incitement of violence," following the January 6 Capitol riots.

    "After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence," Twitter said at the time.

    "In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action."

    Facebook and Instagram soon followed but only banned him from their platforms for two years, with an estimated return date of January 2023.

    In February 2021, Twitter CFO Ned Segal stated that the company has no plans on ever reinstating Trump saying that, "when you're removed from the platform, you're removed from the platform."
