Donald Trump is not a fan of Cleveland changing their name to the Guardians.
Cleveland’s baseball team is changing their name from the Indians to the Guardians, a move that was announced on Friday morning. The name change was revealed in a video narrated by Tom Hanks and accompanied by music from The Black Keys.
The name change came much quicker than that of the Washington Football Team who has plans to reveal its new name and logo next year.
While the name was mostly received positively among Cleveland baseball fans and baseball fans around the country, there was one notable objector to the new name.
That person is the former president of the United States.
Donald Trump thinks changing the name to Guardians is a disgrace and changing the name is destroying their culture and heritage.
Donald Trump is not a fan of Cleveland’s new name change
“Can anybody believe that the Cleveland Indians, a storied and cherished baseball franchise since taking the name in 1915, are changing their name to the Guardians,” Trump said in a statement. “Such a disgrace, and I guarantee that the people who are most angry about it are the many Indians of our Country. Wouldn’t it be an honor to have a team named the Cleveland Indians, and wouldn’t it be disrespectful to rip that name and logo off of those jerseys? The people of Cleveland cannot be thrilled and I, as a former baseball fan, cannot believe things such as this are happening. A small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage. At some point, the people will not take it anymore,” Trump said.
Of course, this stance shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who knows the former president’s ideologies and his fondness for pandering to a base that thinks removing offensive and racist logos, mascots and names is going woke. Such as the case with the removal of confederate statues, the cries of destroying the culture and heritage and it all being the fault of the radical left is the only play in his playbook.
