Bronx president calls Yankees “cynical” for inviting Trump

The president of the New York district of the Bronx, Rubén Díaz Jr., criticized that the Yankees baseball team invited the president of the United States, Donald Trump, on August 15, to make the first launch of a game coinciding with the return of professional sports after the break of COVID-19.

Diaz recalled that the famous team, whose stadium is in the Bronx, spoke out last month against racism and injustice, so inviting Trump to this ceremony without an audience ‘are flagrantly demonstrating that his statements are cynical and that they are not they have genuine meaning, ‘he said in a statement.

Trump said this week that Yankees president Randy Levine had asked him to make the first pitch in the opening of the baseball season and he had accepted, marking the first time that the Republican president has participated in a longstanding sports tradition. among American presidents dating back to the beginning of the last century. Díaz made the team declare that ‘black lives matter’ in early June following the violent death of African-American George Floyd at the hands of a police officer, and that he now extends his hand to a ‘white supremacist’ president, adding that the organization ‘ignores consistently to the community around him. ‘

In that sense, the administrator of this diverse and working-class neighborhood in northern New York considered the visit a “resounding slap in the face” from his neighbors for the “catastrophic mismanagement of the COVID-19 crisis nationwide ‘and his’ cutbacks in essential programs and services while promoting unfair and cruel immigration policies.’

‘Many local workers have lost their jobs, including small businesses next to Yankee Stadium. Some 150,000 Americans, and almost 4,000 bronxites, have died from COVID-19, ‘said the Democratic politician, who accused Trump of not being able to contain the pandemic.
