Former President Donald Trump took part in a “tomahawk chop” with Atlanta Braves fans at their third World Series game against the Houston Astros on October 30.
The National Congress of American Indians condemned the gesture in a statement ahead of the World Series, reiterating the institution’s long-held opposition.
Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred defended the fan celebration to reporters on October 26. Manfred said the team had the support of local native Americans.
