The Boston Red Sox manager, Alex Cora, will not be with his team on Thursday when they inspect the White House to celebrate their victory in last year’s World Series.

El Nuevo Dia said Cora has refused the request because Puerto Rico, where he was born, continues to struggle to recover from Hurricane Maria, which affected small island developing in September 2017. Last time, Cora praised Donald Trump for his tweets downplaying the increasing numbers of Puerto Ricans who died as a result of the event of natural disasters. Trump has also denounced the sluggish improvement on elected officials in Puerto Rico, taking particular aim at San Juan mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz by announcing her” crazed and incapable .”

” Although the government of the United States has helped, there is still a long way to run, that is our reality ,” Cora said in a statement to El Nuevo Dia.” I is continuously worked my voice so that we are able Puerto Ricans are not forgotten and my omission is not different. Therefore, at this moment, I do not feel pleasant celebrating in the White House .”

Eleven Red Sox participates already have said they will not call the White House and meet Trump. They include Mookie Betts, David Price and pitcher Hector Velazquez, who told MassLive last month that the president” has said a lot of material about Mexico.
