Red Sox unsure on White House visit if invited by Trump
BOSTON — The Boston Red Sox said they have not decided whether they will visit the White House if invited by President Donald Trump.
Manager Alex Cora said Thursday he wants to use the platform he has as a World Series champion in the right way. A native Puerto Rican, Cora has been outspoken about the need for help on the island since it was devastated by Hurricane Maria.
The traditional White House visit has become increasingly partisan, with some players declining to make the trip because of their political views.
Confetti cannons boomed and huge crowds of fans cheered wildly on Wednesday as the Sox rumbled through downtown Boston aboard duck boats to mark the team’s fourth World Series championship in the past 15 years Wednesday.
