Trump Demands to Be Recognized in Washington Nationals Presidents Race

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald J. Trump took aim at Washington, D.C.’s pro sports teams on Tuesday, saying he had been expecting “a lot more recognition” when he took office on January 20, 2017.

“I will tell you it’s very disgraceful how unfairly they’ve treated me,” President Trump said during an early morning call-in to Fox & Friends, adding that at the very least he expected to be presented with a personalized jersey from at least one Washington-area sports team. “The Redskins I can understand,” Mr. Trump acknowledged, adding, “I don’t think I did very well with the Indian vote.”

The president said he considers the fact that he is not represented in the Washington Nationals Presidents Race -a promotional event held in the middle of the fourth inning during home games- to be a deliberate attack on his character. “It’s very sad –and frankly un-American– that we have sports teams in this country who are unwilling to support their Commander-in-Chief,” charged President Trump before continuing, “It’s disgusting what they’re doing  – they have crippled Teddy Roosevelt running around the field and you have to wonder what they did with his blanket and wheelchair.”

The president expressed further disapproval over the Nationals’ current presidential lineup, saying, “You look at Abraham Lincoln – a terrible leader who divided this country and devastated the economy in terms of what he did to the South.” Mr. Trump said the Nationals should consider replacing Lincoln with Andrew Johnson, who served as Lincoln’s vice president and assumed office following his assassination. adding that Johnson “doesn’t get enough credit for undoing Lincoln’s failed policies.”

President Trump, who is a die-hard fan of both the New York Mets and Yankees, issued a stark warning to Washington lawmakers and sports fans alike on Tuesday, saying that any future “attempts to discredit” his presidency would be taken into account when deciding whether to make the District of Columbia a state.

  1. Trump has problems… his ego is gonna get up all killed as nation … many countries have no respect for America… and to say Lincoln was a bad President is totally insane… that shows me he is a white nationalist and approves slavery of black Americans…MAGA hat wearers want slavery to be made legal in this country again … this is what will make America great again to them…

  2. He also needs a few history lessons. He got his Roosevelt’s mixed up. He already mentioned not doing well with the Native American vote, and then suggests adding Jackson. This dude is clueless.

  3. trump is a sucky president and his lips look the the grand canyon if there was erosion coming from either side.
