The Cubs infrequently done an additional revisit to a White House on Tuesday. After winning a World Series, a group visited then-President Barack Obama — a Chicago sports fan — in Jan before he left office. But they went behind currently for an “informal” revisit with President Trump.
The Cubs, however, have ties to a Republican celebration and to Trump. The Ricketts family are Republican donors and Cubs owners Tom’s hermit Todd was Trump’s hopeful for emissary secretary of commerce. Manager Joe Maddon is also longtime friends with Lou Barletta, a Republican deputy from Hazleton, PA.
Some players chose not to join their Cubs teammates for a outing to a White House. 10 players, to be exact, according to Gordon Wittenmyer of a Chicago Sun-Times. None of those players disappearing to go offering a domestic reason, understandably so. But reliever Carl Edwards, Jr.’s forgive done a lot of sense. He said, “I’m perplexing to go see like a dinosaur museums.” Indeed, Edwards could have spent a afternoon during a Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.
