"I love you all", the 36-year-old said.

As the president and First Lady Melania Trump hosted the champs, the Marine Band played the "Baby Shark" song, which rallied the team throughout the season.

WASHINGTON, DC - NOVEMBER 4: President Donald Trump welcomes the 2019 World Series Champions, the Washington Nationals, to the White House on November 4 in Washington, DC.

Still, far-right conservatives can't seem to comprehend why people would make such a comparison so naturally they were up in arms when the Washington Nationals catcher, Kurt Suzuki was criticized for proudly flaunting the divisive piece of headwear during his visit to the White House.

"The United States fell in luxuriate in with Nats baseball", Trump in actual fact useful a crowd of gamers and lots of of red-clad Nationals followers gathered under sunny skies on the South Backyard of the White House.

He revealed that part of the reason he refused to visit the White House is because his wife has two mothers and he wanted to "show support for them".

Several teams have declined to make White House visits or have not been invited, including the NBA's Golden State Warriors, the NFL Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles and the U.S. women's World Cup-winning team.

The protests cost £24m ($NZ48.5m) to police and led to 1828 arrests, with 165 people charged with offences, the Met says. Speaking in a Facebook Live broadcast outside the court, she said: "The police can over-step the mark".

Third baseman Anthony Rendon and reliever Sean Doolittle were among the Nationals players who opted not to attend.

There was no immediate explanation for Rendon's absence but Doolittle had announced ahead of time that he would boycott the ceremony. "I just can't do it".

Trump congratulated the Nationals on becoming the first Predominant League Baseball team in Washington to utilize the World Sequence in nearly 100 years.

"I didn't know that became going to happen", Trump acknowledged. Ryan Zimmerman, the team's first draft pick in 2005, gave Trump a customized No. 45 jersey.

"It's an incredible honour that none of us will ever forget", Zimmerman said.

Trump did not mention Rendon or Doolittle or any of the other half-a-dozen absent players during his remarks recounting the team's exploits.

Fans, including members of the Trump administration and Congress, were on hand to celebrate the team for defeating the Houston Astros in a do-or-die seventh game to win the championship.
