President Donald Trump will welcome World Series Champions the Washington Nationals to the White House on Monday.
“#BREAKING: On Monday, @POTUS @realDonaldTrump will welcome the #WorldSeries Champion Washington @Nationals to the @WhiteHouse! #STAYINTHEFIGHT,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere tweeted Friday, referencing the team’s motto during its long journey to victory.
The Nationals arrived back in DC Thursday night after their Wednesday victory over the Houston Astros in a dramatic seven-game series. The team will be holding its victory parade on Saturday in DC.
Trump has already butt heads with Nationals fans. The President attended Game 5 of the World Series in DC on Sunday, where he received cheers, boos and some chants of “lock him up.” Frequent Trump critic and chef José Andrés made the ceremonial first pitch at Sunday’s game.
