Days after saying he would throw out the first pitch at  Yankee Stadium in August, President Donald Trump has taken it back. But he said he will make it up later in the season.









President Trump no longer plans to throw out first pitch


Trump tweeted on Sunday that due to work responsibilities he will not be at the Aug. 15 game at Yankee Stadium.



Because of my strong focus on the China Virus, including scheduled meetings on Vaccines, our economy and much else, I won’t be able to be in New York to throw out the opening pitch for the   @Yankees   on August 15th. We will make it later in the season!

Trump cited his “strong focus” on the   COVID-19 pandemic   and economy.

“Because of my strong focus on the China Virus, including scheduled meetings on Vaccines, our economy and much else, I won’t be able to be in New York to throw out the opening pitch for the Yankees on August 15th. We will make it later in the season!”

Trump said at a White House briefing on Thursday   that he was invited to throw out the first pitch by team president Randy Levin.

“And I think I’m doing that on Aug. 15 at Yankees Stadium,” he said. The Yankees later confirmed he would do so. They are scheduled to face the Boston Red Sox that day.

Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton,   who both took a knee during the national anthem on Friday , declined to comment on the first pitch when asked.

Trump has yet to throw out first pitch during presidency


Presidents have traditionally thrown out first pitches at games, especially on the opening day of MLB’s season. Trump has not yet thrown out a first pitch since taking office.

His announcement came hours before Dr. Anthony Fauci   threw out the first pitch of the 2020 MLB season   for the Washington Nationals. Fauci has led the United States’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic and has chimed in on professional sporting leagues’ plans to return while the pandemic goes on. He has consistently urged caution, including keeping businesses and schools across the country closed. It puts him in contrast to Trump’s stance, which has been to open everything quickly.

He probably wasn't actually invited in the first place.

I can almost guarantee it.  Fool didn't want to be upstaged by Dr. Fauci.

Please explain how Fauci throwing a ball like obama or Carly Rae Jepsen in July will “upstage” the president in august?

You can't be serious.  Opening day was last Thursday.  Dr. Fauci threw out the first pitch.  Trump issues a statement that he would be throwing out the first pitch of a game on Aug. 15th, and then sucks it back in with the 'I'm too busy running the country' excuse.  You are waaaayyyyy too smart not to see what's at play here.

Of course, he announced it with Mariano Rivera at the whitehouse, and then DeBlasio went on the radio to whine about it because it was never going to happen. It’s all a complete scam.  SMH

So after 3-1/2 years of DOING NOTHING, he is now working?
I mean you could have fooled me, wasn't he at the golf course, one of his own golf courses, AGAIN, ALL WEEKEND?
Note how the dickhead keeps calling it the 'China Virus'?
