Nationals Ballpark breaks out into loud boos when Trump is announced: ‘Lock him up!’ (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump arrived at Nationals Stadium right as the first pitch of the game was being thrown.
The president was introduced after about an hour into the game and was met with a full onslaught of boos and chants of "lock him up."

These were extremely loud boos. This is not hyperbole. The fans really did not want Trump in the building.
Honestly, we're surprised Trump stayed with all of this happening around him.
Currently, the Nationals and Astros are tied at two games a piece. They were up 2-0 before Trump announced he would be attending Game 5, if there was one. This seems to have cast a spell on the Nationals and the fans don't like it one bit.
Trump's entourage at the game included a whole list of top name Republicans, who deserved to get booed as well: Kevin Brady, John Ratcliffe, Matt Gaetz, Kevin McCarthy, David Perdue, Lindsey Graham, Liz Cheney, Mac Thornberry, Kay Granger, Steve Scalise, Mark Meadows, and Andy Biggs.
