White House Welcomes the Boston 'Red Socks'

Boston Red Sox Manager Alex Cora, at Least 9 Players Skipping White House Visit

"I watched", he said.

The Yankees' fan made a not-so-subliminal dig at the Sox. "So, if the press, the media doesn't report me for this, I'm going take them up and show them the Lincoln bedroom".

Many fans cringed at the optics and the message, tweeting "shame on you all" and calling out the players who went for not staying back in solidarity with their teammates.

Maybe that was due to some confusion on the White House's website that listed upcoming events to be streamed online and mentioned another team that sounded like them but didn't exist. The Philadelphia Eagles' visit after winning the Super Bowl in 2018 was canceled after it became clear that there will be just a handful of players attending. "We gave Puerto Rico $91 billion for the hurricane", Trump said. Cora said he did not "feel comfortable" celebrating at the White House.

"Each Red Sox player is a shining example of excellence living out an American sporting tradition that goes back many generations, from the open fields of our rich farmlands to the vacant lots of our cities", Trump told the gathering as a light rain fell. Those planning to attend (or presumed to be attending) include J.D. Martinez, who is of Cuban descent, and roughly 20 white players. "Well the Sox aren't going to make it to the White House so I thought the President could welcome some actual red socks". The team's third-base coach, Carlos Febles, who is from the Dominican Republic, stood two rows behind the president.

When the New England Patriots visited in 2017, Trump's first year in office, far fewer players attended than when the franchise won a title under President Barack Obama.

China said it will be forced to retaliate, though the government hadn't specified how as of 6:45 p.m.in Beijing. The Dow is down more than 900 points this week since Trump's tariff threat and the S&P 500 is down 3.7%.

New York Senate passes 2 bills that take direct aim at Trump
Barr said he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decided there were not grounds to charge Trump with obstruction. The dispute with the White House over McGahn is among several requests being resisted by the administration.

Those around the Red Sox locker room stressed that a player's decision to attend was a personal choice and not, in many cases, political.

"Unfortunately, we are still struggling, still fighting".

The team has been trying to downplay any tensions in the clubhouse, and many players have declined to discuss their decisions.

"[Thursday] is a celebration of the Red Sox", Cora said Wednesday.

Cora appeared to capture the President's attention - without responding to him directly, Trump defended his Puerto Rico response in a Monday tweet, citing misleading statistics about aid.
