Red Sox Skipper Alex Cora has finally given his reason why he’ll be skipping the Red Sox World Championship visit.
He’s abstaining due to how President Donald Trump’s administration responded to Hurricane Maria.
Here’s part of his explanation, as translated from Spanish:
“Although the government of the United States has helped, there is still a long way to go, that is OUR reality. I have continually used my voice so that we Puerto Ricans are not forgotten and my absence is not different. Therefore, at this moment, I do not feel comfortable celebrating in the White House.”

The leader said that “he does not feel comfortable celebrating” at the president’s residence when there is still so much to do in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria

Cora has been an outspoken critic of President Trump’s handling of relief efforts in Puerto Rico.
Every action has a reaction.
Trump acts, and people react.
Solid reason why he has zero interest in visiting.
