Tony La Russa says the Red Sox had a good visit to Donald Trump‘s White House last month … telling TMZ Sports they made the trip to show support for their country.
“The flag, anthem, White House,” La Russa says … “Anything that represents our government, we support.”
Of course, some of Boston’s biggest names decided not to go to 1600 Penn Ave. for political reasons … guys like Mookie Betts and David Price, as well as manager Alex Cora, skipped it.
But, La Russa — who’s now the Sox’s vice president — says the guys that did go enjoyed it, saying, “Anything that represents the United States is a good experience.”
As for how the team handled it in the locker room … when we got Sox superstar J.D. Martinez out in NYC a few days ago, he said the trip did NOT divide the squad.
