By Jim Hoft
Earlier on Friday. Major League Baseball Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. announced the MLB is moving the 2021 All-Star Game and Draft from Atlanta. This in response to the new voting integrity law passed in Georgia last month. The All-Star Game was set to be hosted by the Atlanta Braves at Truist Park Stadium on July 13. The draft was to be held in Atlanta July 11-13.
Joe Biden told ESPN on Wednesday. He “would strongly support” MLB moving the game. Calling the Georgia law “Jim Crow on steroids.” The new law requires a photo ID to apply for absentee ballot. Democrats know voter ID laws cut down on fraud which they find necessary to win elections. On Friday night President Trump released a statement on the MLB boycott and election interference by Major League Baseball.
Donald Trump: Boycott Major League Baseball for interfering in free and fair elections!
