MLB Icon Mariano Rivera Endorses Donal Trump for 2024 Election

As a tribute to legendary New Yorker Donald J. Trump, one of the all-time great Yankees pitchers has endorsed the former President.

According to a report, the renowned closer Mariano Rivera reportedly backed former president Donald Trump for the 2024 election.

The baseball great was a guest on Monday’s Sid & Friends in the Morning on WABC.  In support of his claim, Rivera referred to his prior acquaintance with Trump, which began before the tycoon first campaigned for president.

According to Rivera, President Trump is a friend of his. That’s undisputable, and he will tell everyone. He went on to say that he had been his friend before becoming president, and he would cast his vote for him.

Rivera positioned his support by claiming it is the nation’s best interest, transcending partisanship.

Later, in a Truth Social post, Trump thanked Rivera for the support.

Recognizing Rivera’s achievements in baseball and his charitable work, Trump presented him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom at a 2019 ceremony.

According to the Trump White House archives, over the course of his 19 years in the MLB, Mariano Rivera solidified his position as the sport’s all-time best relief pitcher.

After signing with the Yankees in 1990, Rivera won five World Series championships and was named to the All-Star team thirteen times. The National Baseball Hall of Fame inducted him with a unanimous vote.

When he’s not playing, he’s helping underprivileged kids get degrees and building their futures via the Mariano Rivera Foundation.

The Archives noted that in recognition of Mariano Rivera’s legendary baseball career and dedication to uplifting American communities, the United States of America presented him with the medal with great pride.

On April 7th, Trump, the Republican Party’s likely presidential contender, stopped by a LIV Golf event held at the Trump National Doral Miami hotel to win over sports enthusiasts in the run-up to the 2024 election.

Notable guests at the event included Anthony Kim, Bubba Watson, Bryson DeChambeau, and the former president and his son, Eric Trump.

Over the weekend, Trump’s fundraiser in Palm Beach, Florida, brought in over $50 million.
