Donald Trump Jr. defended his father who was booed Sunday night in Nationals Park in anger against the swamp of Washington D.C.
& # 39; I would wear it as a badge of honor in the swamp. If you make them angry, you are doing something right! & # 39 ;, He wrote on Twitter on Monday.
President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump were chased during Game 5 of the World Series between the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros when their images were flashed on the jumbotron.
& # 39; I take angry from the left DC fan base and cheers from the great men and women of the US forces every day of the week!, & # 39; wrote Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, on Twitter alongside a video of the president being honored by members of the army.

President Trump has been surprisingly silent about the incident during the game, with some baseball fans also locking in & # 39; shouted at him – an excerpt from his famous 2016 campaign campaign against Hillary Clinton: & close her up & # 39 ;.
White House vice secretary, Hogan Gidley, said he had not talked to the president about the anger, but noted that Washington DC is a fairly liberal city, but the president is a big baseball fan and while he wanted to go to the game to play the NATS and also the Astros who were here a few years ago. & # 39;
Washington D.C. is a strong democratic area. Trump won just over four percent of the votes in the District of Columbia in the 2016 elections.
& # 39; He also wanted the injured warriors to be able to sit in the box and talk to them about their experiences and I think it was a great evening for him, a great evening for them and for the country and "A great evening for baseball," Gidley said in response to a question from DailyMail.com at the White House on Monday.
At least three wounded warriors were seen in the box Trump was in before the game and the men traveled with the president in his motorcade from the White House to the fringes.
Also with the president was the first lady and several Republican lawmakers, all of whom are some of his greatest allies on Capitol Hill: senators Lindsey Graham and David Perdue; and representatives Mac Thornberry, Kevin Brady, Kay Granger, Kevin McCarthy, Steve Scalise, Mark Meadows John Ratcliffe, Andy Biggs, Liz Cheney and Matt Gaetz.
Trump and his party entered the game shortly before the first pitch and were in one of the private boxes. Their arrival was not announced, but some in the neighborhood noticed it.
At the end of the third inning, the video screens in the White House brought a salute to American servants who cheered through the stadium.
As the video cut to Trump and his entourage, the cheering abruptly turned into a torrent of angry and bickering, with songs from & # 39; Shut him up! & # 39; That breaks out in some parts.
Recordings made by NBC shortly after the stadium announcer called his name, Trump's radiant smile sharply documented a grimace when he first heard the angry ringing.
Trump then seemed to shake off the hostile reception, claim his smile, and wave enthusiastically to the crowd.
But the taunts continued throughout the game, with two fans behind the home plate unrolling plates that in one stage & # 39; VETERANS FOR IMPEACHMENT & # 39; read.

A large & # 39; Impeach Trump & # 39; banner was rolled out on one of the upper decks of the stadium
It is not clear at first whether Trump, who left the game around 10 p.m., saw the banner on the stadium display board before making his exit.
The president attended the race hours after a press conference when he announced that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had died after deploying his suicide jacket while American Special Ops troops raided his hiding place on Saturday night in Idlib, northwestern Syria.
Trump praised the news as a giant triumph for his government and boasted that it was even deeper than the Obama administration's military attack on Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
& # 39; Last night, the United States & # 39; The world's number one terrorist leader tried, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead, & T 39 declared. "He was the founder and leader of ISIS, the most ruthless and violent terror organization around the world.
