“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that,” Biden told ESPN in an interview on Wednesday. “People look to them. They’re leaders.”
“Look at what’s happened across the board. The very people who are victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports, and it’s just not right,” Biden said in the interview. “This is Jim Crow on steroids, what they’re doing in Georgia and 40 other states.”
“When the President of the United States says something, you know a lot of people pay attention. But what Joe Biden needs to do is look at the side-by-side of Georgia and Delaware,” Kemp said. “He’s focused on trying to get Major League Baseball to pull the game out of Georgia, which is ridiculous.”
The All-Star Game is currently scheduled to take place at the Atlanta Braves’ Truist Park on July 13.
