Donald Trump has released a scathing statement encouraging Americans to boycott “woke corporations” that are interfering with our system of democratic government and attempting to stifle free and fair elections.
“Baseball has already lost a huge number of fans, and now they’re leaving Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they’re afraid of the radical left Democrats who don’t want voter ID, which is desperately needed, to have any role in our elections.”
“Boycott baseball and other woke businesses interfering with Free and Fair Elections,” Trump said. “Are you paying attention, Coke, Delta, and everybody else?”
Senator Ted Cruz is urging Americans to pursue Major League Baseball’s sponsors.
These are MLB’s corporate sponsors, who pressured to pull the All Star game out of Atlanta.
Do all of them oppose voter ID?
Are all of them willing to be the woke enforcers of the corrupt Democratic Party?
And do all hate the 75m who voted for Trump? https://t.co/cuOXYFO9Gv

Senator Cruz wrote, “These are MLB’s corporate backers, who forced MLB to take the All Star game out of Atlanta.” “Do they all reject voter ID? Are they all ready to be the crooked Democratic Party’s woke enforcers? Do you all despise the 75 million people who voted for Trump?”
Chevrolet, Budweiser, Bank of America, Google, Geico, and a slew of other companies are among the MLB’s sponsors.
MLB Commissioner Robert Mandred released a statement earlier today stating that the All-Star Game will be canceled due to Georgia’s election rule.
“I’ve agreed that moving this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft is the best way to show our ideals as a sport,” Manfred said.
“Major League Baseball firmly supports all Americans’ right to vote and rejects ballot box restrictions.”
It turns out that there is almost no data to back up the point that voter ID laws decrease turnout in elections.
Voter ID laws “have no negative impact on registration or participation, overall or for any category identified by race, gender, age, or party affiliation,” according to a new study conducted by the National Bureau of Economic Research based on ten years of voting data in the United States from 2008 to 2018. Enrico Cantoni of the University of Bologna and Vincent Pons of Harvard Business School conducted the study, which was published in February 2019.

Additional research on the subject has backed up this international review. The Heritage Foundation said, “This latest [NBER] research echoes the conclusion of others, including a seminal report by The Heritage Foundation in 2007 finding that voter ID laws do not reduce voter turnout, including among African-Americans and Hispanics.” “These voters were as likely to vote in states that required photo identification as they were in states that did not.” Even the left-wing Vox News admitted that voter ID laws had little impact on voter turnout.
Even worse, MLB’s argument is blatantly hypocritical since it makes divisive, evidence-free statements.
According to the Brennan Center for Justice, 11% of Americans lack a valid, unexpired government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or a photo ID. According to Pew Research, 19% of Americans do not have access to a mobile phone.
Nonetheless, photographic IDs, mobile passes, and even evidence of vaccine record or negative COVID test results are often needed to join Major League Baseball stadiums. In New York, there is also an Excelsior Pass to monitor vaccine recipients, which might be used by companies like Major League Baseball to prevent people from entering their facilities.
“Activists and Black executives have been pressuring Delta Air Lines and Coca-Cola for two weeks, demanding that the businesses openly condemn a new law in Georgia that makes it harder for people to vote,” the New York Times reported. “On Wednesday, six days after the legislation was passed, both firms issued ‘crystal simple’ statements opposing it.”
According to a Rasmussen Research poll of 1,000 likely voters released on March 17, 75 percent of likely voters favor the provision of photo identification before voting in US elections. This includes 69 percent of Black voters, which is statistically close to the percentages of Both Non-White and White voters.
According to a recent Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online poll, 75% of Potential U.S. Voters agree that voters should be required to display photo identification such as a driver’s license before being eligible to vote. “Only 21% of respondents reject such a requirement.”
“Thirty-six states have passed some kind of voter ID law,” Rasmussen points out, “but those laws will be nullified if the Senate passes H.R. 1, which passed the House on a party-line vote.” “Critics argue that H.R. 1 will require states to allow someone who signs a form claiming that they are who they claim to be to vote.”
