National pitcher Stephen Strasburg calls & # 39; # FakeNews & # 39; after misleading Twitter video shows him a handshake of President Trump in the White House
- Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg did not take Donald Trump at the White House reception, as a misleading Twitter video suggested
- The World Series MVP has released its first tweet in more than a year to deny the accusation
- A broader perspective clearly shows that Strasburg is turning to hug manager Dave Martinez and wrongly not noticing the extended hand of Trump
- The misleading footage cuts Strasburg & # 39; s hug with Martinez, and the subsequent handshakes of the pitcher with both Trump and First Lady Melania
- The 31-year-old Strasburg spoke outside the White House while celebrating the World Series victory over the Houston Astros
- Strasburg has just signed out for the last four years and $ 100 million from his contract with the team and is about to become a free agent this season
Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg did not double President Donald Trump at the White House reception on Monday and the World Series MVP issued his first tweet in more than a year to deny the accusation.
& # 39; #FakeNews, & # 39; Strasburg responded to a Twitter user posting misleading images of the 31-year-old All-Star who ended his speech and apparently ignored Trump & # 39; s attempt at a handshake.
The Twitter user claimed that Strasburg left & # 39; Trump & # 39 ;.
A broader perspective, however, clearly shows that Strasburg turns to hug manager Dave Martinez, who stood behind the pitcher's left shoulder and innocently did not see Trump's outstretched hand.
SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO
National pitcher Stephen Strasburg did not drop Donald Trump at the White House reception and the World Series MVP issued a rare tweet to deny the accusation
Strasburg responded to a Twitter user who posted misleading images of the 31-year-old All-Star who ended his speech and apparently ignored Trump & # 39; s attempt at a handshake

The misleading tweet contained a tighter recording that focused solely on Strasburg and the President – Martinez was almost invisible.
That video, which was retweeted more than 7,000 times, was also interrupted and neglected to show the handshakes that Strasburg shared with the First Lady Melania and President Trump a few seconds later.
Strasburg did not comment further, but the longer, wider angle images definitively show that he did not understand Trump.
The National League wins leader last season, Strasburg has just signed out for the last four years and $ 100 million from his contract with the team. In response to his looming free desk, onlookers shouted jokes & # 39; Four more years! & # 39; when he left the stage.
Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki briefly put a & # 39; Make America Great Again & # 39; -head up while he and his teammates visited President Trump in the White House on Monday
Except for relief, pitcher Sean Doolittle, who mentioned the splitting rhetoric of Trump as his reason for not being present, the Nationals players were very flattering to the president.
Catcher Kurt Suzuki wore a & # 39; Make America Great Again & # 39; hat and raised a hug from Trump, while veteran infielder Ryan Zimmerman thanked the president for & # 39; continuing to make America the largest country in the world & # 39 ;.
Trump was largely booed while attending Game 5 of the World Series in Washington D.C., where he received only 4.1 percent of the votes in 2016.
He plans to attend the biggest regular football game of the year when Alabama is in second place on Saturday, according to Sports Illustrated.
Trump easily won Alabama in 2016 and received 62.9 percent of the vote compared to just 34.6 percent for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
