Supporters of former President Donald Trump displayed their sentiments in a big way during the singing of “God Bless America” Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium in New York City. The group unveiled a massive “Trump or Death: 1776-2024” flag from the terrace level along the first-base line during the Yankees’ game against the Detroit Tigers. A clip of the exercise was uploaded to the X social media platform by freelance video journalist Oliya Scootercaster.

Traditionally, baseball fans are expected to stand, remove their hats and place their hands over their hearts during the playing of “God Bless America,” which was added to MLB’s seventh-inning stretch after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Trump himself is a lifelong Yankees fan, counting legendary closer Mariano Rivera and deceased longtime owner George Steinbrenner as friends, according to NBC News. The Yankees defeated the Tigers 4-3 in the Wednesday contest, bringing the team’s record over .500. However, New York was in last place in the American East on Thursday, 18 games behind the first-place Baltimore Orioles. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
