Nationals fans unfurl 'Impeach Trump' banner on Opening Day

​​​​​​

In late March, President Trump announced that he would not throw the first pitch on Opening Day for the Washington Nationals. Despite rumors, Trump did not break a century-old tradition by declining the Nats' invitation.

Critics of the president did not hesitate from expressing their view on Monday's opening game. In the upper deck of Nationals Park, Nats fans presented a banner that read "IMPEACH TRUMP #RESIST":

It occurred after the Nationals beat the Marlins 4-2.

According to BuzzFeed News, the organizers behind the sign were members of a group called Americans Take Action including Jason Charter and Ryan Clayton. Americans Take Action was also behind the prank of handing out Russian flags with Trump's name at CPAC.

Charter tweeted that while Trump was not at the game, the group "left him a message":

Originally, the organization planned to unfurl the sign when Trump made the first pitch. When he declined the invitation, they decided to go through with it anyway. Charter told BuzzFeed, "He wasn't there today because he was scared."
