Donald Trump was loudly booed by the crowd at Nationals Park in Washington, DC, Sunday during his first appearance as president at a Major League Baseball game.

The crowd also chanted "Lock him up!"

The Nationals Park crowd loudly booed President Trump after he was introduced. An inning later, some fans chanted, “Lock him up! Lock him up!” Game 5 of the World Series is the first MLB game that Trump has attended as president.

Trump, along with first lady Melania Trump and some GOP lawmakers, attended Game 5 of the World Series hours after he announced the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi during a US raid in Syria.

At the end of the third inning of the Washington Nationals home game against the Houston Astros, the crowd cheered as the Jumbotron paid tribute to US service members.

The crowd's cheers immediately turned to resounding boos heard all around the ballpark when the announcer introduced Trump and the Jumbotron showed the president standing and clapping.

Trump continued to smile and clap.
