Sean Doolittle White House
Sean Doolittle has turned down a trip to the White House to celebrate the Washington Nationals’ World Series victory. The Nationals became World Series champions when they beat the Houston Astros.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Doolittle explained why he chose to not attend a White House ceremony. “There’s a lot of things, policies that I disagree with, but at the end of the day, it has more to do with the divisive rhetoric and the enabling of conspiracy theories and widening the divide in this country. My wife and I stand for inclusion and acceptance, and we’ve done work with refugees, people that come from, you know, the ‘shithole countries,'” Doolittle said, referring to Trump’s comments about Haiti, El Salvador and African nations in a January 2018 meeting.
“At the end of the day, as much as I wanted to be there with my teammates and share that experience with my teammates, I can’t do it,” Doolittle continued. “I just can’t do it.”
