Former President Donald Trump attended Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday and joined some Atlanta Braves fans as they participated in the controversial “Tomahawk chop.”

The Braves were facing off against the Houston Astros at Truist Park when Trump and his wife, Melania, followed the crowd and took park in the “chop.” The controversial gesture has been criticized for being racist toward indigenous people.

In a brief statement ahead of the game, Trump thanked Randy Levine, the president of the New York Yankees, and Rob Manfred, the MLB commissioner, for inviting him to the World Series.

However, Atlanta Braves CEO Terry McGuirk told USA TODAY Sports that Trump asked to attend the game. “He called MLB and wanted to come to the game,’’ McGuirk said. “We were very surprised. Of course, we said yes.’’

The Trumps were seen in an open-air suit with former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows.

Trump’s appearance at the game comes months after the former president called for a boycott after the MLB pulled the 2021 All-Star game from the city after Georgia introduced a more restrictive voting law.

“Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections,” Trump said at the time.

“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.”

Following the 2020 election, Trump challenged the results and infamously told Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to find the votes he needed to win the state. 

Trump lost Georgia by less than 12,000 votes, which marked the first time since 1992 that the state voted for a Democratic candidate. Joe Biden earned 49.5% of the state’s vote while Trump garnered 49.2%.
