This footage filmed on October 30, shows former US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump doing the "Tomahawk Chop" at the World Series game in Atlanta, US state of Georgia. Even though the gesture has been used by the famous baseball team Atlanta Braves since 1991, the chop has given rise to controversy. Many consider this sports celebration demeaning and racist towards the Native American culture. In a statement released on Wednesday, Fawn Sharp, President of the National Congress of American Indians, said: "We have repeatedly and unequivocally made our position clear – Native people are not mascots, and degrading rituals like the ‘tomahawk chop’ that dehumanize and harm us have no place in American society".
