Oct 28, 2019 at 11:29 PM

The Quick Facts

  • On Sunday, US President Donald Trump faced boos from fans at the Nationals Park stadium in D.C. during the World Series match-up between the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros. The boos came after Trump was displayed prominently on the jumbotron.
  • The booing included chants of "lock him up," a callback to the controversial "lock her up" chants from Trump's 2016 campaign. Some fans even displayed a banner which read "Impeach Trump!"
  • This came as the House of Representatives' impeachment inquiry began to heat up, with witnesses providing testimony on the President. Furthermore, the day after the stadium booing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House would vote to formalize the procedures of the impeachment inquiry.
