President Donald Trump has recently mentioned that he’ll attend Game five of the World Series, should there be one, in Washington D.C.
President Trump has plans to attend Game 5 of the World Series at Nationals Park on Sunday. Should the World Series need a Game 5, you can almost expect to see President Trump there. According to NBC News, Donald Trump will be in attendance to see the World Series in the nation’s capital.
When asked if he’ll possibly throw out the first pitch, he said that he wouldn’t, because he did not like the look of having to wear a bulletproof vest as other presidents have done on the field.

Per NBC News, a Nationals spokesperson said that Trump will not throw out the first pitch. Every President to date that attended an MLB Baseball game has thrown out the ceremonial first pitch and it appears Donald Trump could potentially break that cycle.
Trump’s plans to attend the game could be cloudy, as the forecast calls for rain and considering the Nats are already leading 2-0 against the Houston Astros.
The Nationals currently hold a 2-0 lead in the World Series and the World Series returns to D.C. for the first time ever tonight. If Washington wins two straight games, they will be named the 2019 World Champions and sweep the Houston Astros in the Fall Classic.
It’ll certainly make for an interesting one if Game 5 of the World Series is even played.
It might be in President Trump’s favor to attend the Friday night or Saturday night game where the series is guaranteed to be played.
