The Washington Nationals visited the White House today, as is tradition after a championship. They did the customary tour, and then had the speech on the front lawn. Trump said it was a record amount of people on the lawn itself. Unlike a lot of pro teams lately, the Nats, who place in D.C. decided to go and enjoy their time at the Nations Capital. Kurt Suzuki stole the show with grabbing a MAGA hat, ensuing a moment with him and Trump. This comes only a week after the home crowd in Washington boo’ed President Trump.
The Nationals are at the White House today, and Kurt Suzuki had a moment with President Trump ?

This crowd goes on and on. Heard that people in the front have been here for about three hours waiting for the ceremony to start. pic.twitter.com/7sLNgimbZ2

What I am hoping, for once, we can all put away all our political hate and nonsense and just enjoy these fun times for the Washington Nationals and their family, fans, and friends. Lets not get too worked up and just enjoy the World Champs.
