President Trump said people should boycott baseball over MLB’s response to Georgia’s new voting law.

In an interview on Tuesday, he said people are giving up on baseball, adding “woke is not good for our country.” He went on to slam professional baseball’s decision to move this year’s All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver over election law changes.

He said he thinks the people of Georgia will suffer over a bill he believes is watered down.

President Trump called the move unfair, adding the organization wasn’t actually familiar with the bill when it announced its decision to relocate the game.

“Everybody was ok with it, then as soon as Stacey Abrams speaks up, they end up folding, and it should be the opposite. We have more people than they do,” President Trump stated. “The people should boycott those companies that are all of a sudden so righteous.”

The 45th President went on to say boycotts would encourage companies to return to states they themselves are boycotting. He also repeated his previous criticism of Georgia’s new election law, noting it’s less stringent than voting laws in Colorado.
