Trump draws boos when introduced to crowd at World Series

WASHINGTON, D.C.: President Donald Trump’s low-profile appearance Sunday night at Game 5 of the World Series came at a high-profile moment of his presidency. Yet he still drew loud boos and jeers when introduced to the crowd. Trump arrived at Nationals Park just before the first pitch of the Houston Astros-Washington Nationals matchup. Trump and first lady Melania Trump entered a lower-tier box to the left of home plate as the game got underway. At that point his presence wasn’t formally announced. At the end of the third inning, ballpark video screens carried a salute to US service members that drew cheers throughout the stadium. When the video cut to Trump and his entourage and the loudspeakers announced the Trumps, cheers abruptly turned into a torrent of boos and heckling. Chants of “Lock him up!” broke out in some sections. Trump appeared unfazed and continued waving. Later, some fans behind home plate held a sign reading “VETERANS FOR IMPEACHMENT.” Another banner appeared during the game: “IMPEACH TRUMP!” The president was on hand for seven innings before heading back to the White House.
