Red Sox postpone White House trip because of shutdown

Red Sox postpone White House trip because of shutdown The Boston Red Sox are postponing their White House visit because of the partial government shutdown. The team says it consulted with Major League Baseball and the White House and rescheduled the trip to May 9, an off-day after a three-game series in Baltimore. The team had accepted an invitation from President Donald Trump to make the traditional champion's visit on Feb. 15. But Red Sox President Sam Kennedy said last weekend it would not be appropriate to celebrate while 800,000 federal employees were not getting paychecks.

Jackie Bradley Jr. is among the Red Sox players who will not be attending Boston’s visit to the White House — and his decision clearly drew the ire of some folks.

As is customary for any team that wins a championship, an invite is extended for a visit with the president in Washington D.C.

While a handful or Red Sox players said they would attend the visit with Donald Trump, others have said they would pass.

Bradley — who went to the White House in 2013 with the Red Sox and 2010 with the University of South Carolina baseball team — told The Boston Globe on Wednesday, “I don’t get into politics. But I won’t be going.” That apparently led to him getting some negative feedback, likely on social media, which prompted the star outfielder to release this statement on Twitter.

The visit originally was scheduled for Feb. 15th, which is right before full-squad spring training begins. But due to the government shutdown, the Red Sox elected to postpone until May 9.

Trump likely to visit Japan for state visit in May: media.
U.S. President Donald Trump will likely visit Japan as a state guest on May 26, Japanese broadcaster NHK reported on Wednesday, citing Japanese officials.

During his visit, Trump is expected to become the first foreign dignitary to meet with the emperor after his ascension to the throne in May. The United States and Japan have worked closely on issues with North Korea, which has threatened to strike both countries with nuclear weapons.
