Trump Supporters Thrown Out of Yankee Stadium for Flying ‘Trump Won’ Banner
A video showed the flag which said 'Trump Won Save America'
Two supporters of President Donald Trump were handcuffed and thrown out of Yankee Stadium after they flew a large banner that said 'Trump won.'
A video showed the flag, which said “Trump Won Save America,” being unveiled on the first-base side of the stadium.
The flag prompted cheers and a few boos from the crowd.
One person attempted to pull down the banner during the second game of a doubleheader between the Yankees and Blue Jays in the video.
Pictures show the two men struggling with security over the flag.
A Facebook video later showed additional security in the stadium following the unveiling of the flag.
One of the two men appeared to be handcuffed as he is walked up the steps away from the seating area.
“Sounded like the entire crowd was booing until security confiscated the banner, which then resulted in a large cheer,” tweeted Max Goodman, who covers the team for Sports Illustrated.
A reporter with The Athletic, Lindsey Adler, tweeted:
“Lots of booing here after some jabronis unfurled a ‘TRUMP WON’ banner off the second deck. (He didn’t).”
She tweeted after the men were escorted out:
“Now we have extremely loud cheering as the conspiracy theory banner people are led out of the section by security.”

The incident comes just weeks after Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Yankees and Mets fans would be segregated into vaccinated and unvaccinated during games starting the middle of this month.
“New York will set up vaccinated and unvaccinated sections at Mets and Yankees games, Cuomo announces,” reported Joseph Spector.
“The teams and the Department of Health will also set up vaccines at the games….”
