He makes a great point…
Johnny Damon, the two-time World Series champion, said Monday he was delighted to see the White House by the Washington Nationals and hopes that all players will follow suit.
Damon said that attending the White House is really the best time for players to share their concerns over “issues that you see and try to make things work.”
“It’s a great time to talk and see what they’re really mad about,” the two-time World Series champion told TMZ Sports. “Our economy is doing really well and you have to have tough skin against the world and I think we’re doing a great job, but things aren’t said the right way sometimes or how people want to hear them said.”
He continued: “I think it’s a great time to sit down with the president and say ‘I don’t like what’s going on and this is what I do like’ and we can talk about it. Right now, no one is talking about it, they’re just hating on both sides. That’s the wrong way [to handle it].”
Damon backed Trump’s presidential candidacy in 2016 and spoke in one of his campaign events. He was also a contestant on “Celebrity Apprentice.”
