TAMPA (WFLA) – Former President Trump will attend Game 4 of the World Series in Atlanta on Saturday, according to The Hill.

The visit to Atlanta comes after the city was passed over by Major League Baseball to host the All-Star Game over the summer following the state government’s enactment of tight voting restrictions, which drew a wave of backlash from Democrats and businesses. 

The Georgia law includes new limits on voting by mail and greater legislative control over how elections are run, amid a push in Republican-led states to reduce voting options after Trump made baseless claims of widespread fraud in last year’s election.

The former president was greeted with a chorus of boos and chants of “Lock him up!” along with some cheers during Game 5 of the 2019’s World Series in Washington, D.C.
