Throughout his presidency, Donald Trump avoided appearing in cities where he wouldn’t get a warm reception. In October of 2019, he decided that he would be safe going to a Nationals World Series game. It turned out to be a humiliating experience as Trump was loudly booed when shown on the scoreboard.
Following that moment, Trump went to a number of safe events where he would receive a better reception, like football games in Alabama and Louisiana. Now that he’s out of office, Trump will continue that tradition by going to a baseball game in Atlanta. And he thinks he will get a warm reception.
Trump appeared to receive some applause, some boos when announced during Salute to Trips, then troops received applause followed by intense boos when they showed POTUS on screen. Some in the crowd chanted “lock him up” after https://t.co/3LouM61ld7 pic.twitter.com/h9X6mToPvu

The former president talked about his plans during an appearance on Clay Travis and Buck Sexton’s podcast, He told the hosts, “Tremendous, tremendous, terrible things happened in terms of that election. But we did tremendously in Georgia and I think we’ll get a great reception.”
Travis replied by sycophanticly gushing, “I can’t wait to see the reception that he’s gonna get in Atlanta. Because I think that it’s going to blow the mind of all the left-wing woke journos when that Braves stadium comes undone for him.”
