Republican Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Representative Dan Crenshaw (R.Texas) attacked President Biden and the Major League Baseball because the coalition decided to boycott Georgia’s election laws and Ask whether this position will be extended to the Chinese Communist regime.

Manchester Commissioner Robert D. Manfred said in a statement: “The Major League Baseball fundamentally supports the voting rights of all Americans and opposes restrictions on the ballot box.”
But Rubio referred to recent reports that the baseball organization has expanded its agreement with China-owned Tencent to ship games to dictatorships. The country suppressed democratic protests. Major League Baseball (MLB) first reached an agreement with the tech giant in 2018.
“@MLB feels pressure and withdraws the picks and #AllStarGame from Georgia in the same week as an agreement with the Chinese Communist Party-backed company that declared genocide. And antitrust?” Rubio tweeted.
The law signed by Governor Brian Kemp imposes new restrictions on postal voting, increases voter ID requirements, and places restrictions on coin box locations and business hours. It reduces the voting time of absentees and cancels the signature matching system. Instead, it supports the provision of driver’s license, state ID or the last four digits of its social security number on ballots to prove identity.
The law stipulates that there must be two early voting on Saturdays before the general election, while there was only one Saturday before, and stipulates that two Sundays are optional. The law also prohibits outside groups from distributing free food or water to people waiting in line to vote. But the law allows “tap water in unattended containers”.

President Biden gave a speech earlier this week, saying that he will “strongly support” Major League Baseball’s decision to move the game out of Georgia.
In an interview with ESPN, Biden said: “Look at everything that happens. The people who suffer the most are the leaders of these sports. This is not right.” “This is a steroid taken by Jim Crow. , What they did in Georgia and 40 other states.”
Crenshaw defeated Biden in this comparison and asked the president whether he planned to withdraw the United States from the Beijing Olympics.
“Hi, Biden, will you boycott the Beijing Olympics because of genocide?” he asked. “Or do you just want to hurt Atlanta’s large and small businesses that are planning an All-Star game?”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about Biden’s comments on Friday and denied that Biden had explicitly requested a boycott.
“Well, the president made it clear that he believes-he has major concerns about the bill passed by Georgia. He has always believed that it should be easier and more difficult to vote. Providing water to the people waiting in line does not make things worse. Easy. We are not here to ask companies to take concrete actions.”
Paski said that someone later asked if this would be extended to Beijing, and the US Olympic Committee will play an “important role” in this decision.
