Donald Trump Jr. responded on Twitter on Friday, after Major League Baseball announced it is moving its All-Star Game out of Atlanta over Georgia’s new election integrity law.

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred announced in a statement, “Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box. Over the last week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and The Players Alliance, among others, to listen to their views. I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft.”

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has spoken out as a number of corporations have slammed the state’s new election laws, saying they are opposing it based on false talking points, and notes that they have not even read it.

In a Twitter post Friday afternoon, Trump Jr. suggested it’s time Republicans fight back.

“Republicans in Congress should immediately move to repeal the
@MLB’s anti-trust exemption. Grow some balls and fight fire with fire,” he wrote.

Within minutes, Trump Jr. got an answer – from Republican Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina.

Duncan announced, “In light of @MLB’s stance to undermine election integrity laws, I have instructed my staff to begin drafting legislation to remove Major League Baseball’s federal antitrust exception.”

“An overwhelming bipartisan majority of Americans support requiring an ID to vote, and any organization that abuses its power to oppose secure elections deserves increased scrutiny under the law,” the GOP congressman added.

Duncan then tagged Trump Jr. on his post.

Trump Jr. also re-tweeted a post by conservative strategist Caleb Hull, who wrote, “Joe Biden lied about Georgia election laws, got 4 pinnochios from WaPo, the MLB bought into it and moved their all-star game and now you know who gets hurt because of it? Atlanta, where 60% of the city is people of color. Good work, everyone.”

  1. I guess MLB would be happier elsewhere… they should have stuck to playing ball instead of playing politics which they apparently don’t understand. Maybe they can still play in Cuba and China. Probably be a good fit for them. Rather have election integrity rather than a baseball game.

  2. MBL along with football and most professional sports we no longer support, watch, buy products not even for gifts. They are all over paid, ungrateful and think they are so special they can shove ideas down our throats.
    We used to love football and baseball. Even nascar is pushing it.

  3. Doesn’t even if these big corporations realize Biden could give two shuts about Americans, regardless of color, religious affiliation, gender or sexual affiliation? It’s about power and everyone and everything is just a useful tool, until it’s no longer needed. This entire administrations goal is to bring as much pain to as many as possible, divide the country and destroy it at all costs.

    I’ll be boycotting and writing to each MLB sponsor. Hope they’re happy with the role they played in pulling the rug out from under Atlanta and GA and their citizens. How’s it feel to be woke? Baseball used to be as american as apple pie, now it’s just a political arm of this leftist armageddon.

    Take a knee, and stay OUT of politics. Think half the country doesn’t have the conviction to cut you out…then you’ve under estimated our LOVE OF COUNTRY. Boycott the MLB and their 16 sponsors. You can find them online…you won’t be surprised who they are.

  4. Most people do not know that because of all of the colored people in Atlanta the Atlanta Braves moved out of Atlanta and to Marietta GA. That is the political results of stupid people in charge of politics in Atlanta. Great Law for real voters, not the scum that voted last election.
