President and First Lady Melania Trump sat in a suite behind the house sign in Nationals Park, along with several Republican members of the Congress, including Deputy Steve Scalise, Sen. Lindsay Graham, and MP Matt Gaetz as they were shown right field during a greeting to veterans.
When a shot of US troops appeared on the screen during the Mid-Inning segment "Wave Your Caps" of the Nationals, the stadium in Jubel erupted before Trump's shot appeared.
The crowd's reaction shifted to boos rather than applause, to which Trump smiled and waved on. The screen then returned to the troops and read, "Thank you for your service." The boos subsided, but still existed.
After the salutation was over, people in some parts of the crowd angrily pointed to the suite Trump was sitting in, shouting "lock him up."
The buzzing calls and songs of "Locked Him" rang on the outfield seats.
Trump was later intensively watched during the traditional presidential race, which saw huge caricatures by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt in a race. The 45th President did not applaud when the character disguised as Teddy Roosevelt No. 26 won.
Trump did not participate in the "Baby Shark" greeting for the outfielder of the Nationals, Gerardo Parra, in front of his bats.
The Trumps retired before the head of the 8th innings.
