Former President Donald Trump on Friday called for a boycott of Major League Baseball, following the league’s decision to move its All-Star game out of Georgia.
The league said on Friday that it would no longer host its 2021 All-Star Game in Atlanta after Georgia passed a restrictive voting law.
In a statement, Trump said: “Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections.”
He added: “Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”
Coca-Cola and Delta, which both have operations in Georgia, had spoken out against the state’s law.
Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey said the company was “disappointed.” Delta CEO Ed Bastian said the Georgia law was “unacceptable and does not match Delta’s Values.”
