So the Nats visited the White House today, as is tradition after a championship. They did the customary tour, and then had the speech on the front lawn. Trump said it was a record amount of people on the lawn itself.

This crowd goes on and on. Heard that people in the front have been here for about three hours waiting for the ceremony to start. pic.twitter.com/7sLNgimbZ2— Jesse Dougherty (@dougherty_jesse) November 4, 2019
He then gave a speech that highlighted the Nats postseason run, from the Milwaukee Miracle, to the Dodgers heroics, the sweep of St. Louis, and then winning all 4 on the road in Houston. He put little quips throughout the speech, including this one:
Trump: "America fell in love with the Nats baseball, they just fell in love with Nats baseball. That's all they wanted to talk about – that and impeachment." pic.twitter.com/oTGY85BYjl— Peter Stevenson (@PeterWStevenson) November 4, 2019
He also, whenever he got to a player, waved them over and had them give a little speech. It was actually pretty cool, seeing Soto, Scherzer, Stras, Zim and others address the crowd from the steps of the White House...
Overall, a quick, upbeat, harmless ceremony to honor the champs. Regardless of your politics, it’s always cool to see your team at the White House.
