Men booted from Yankee Stadium after displaying ‘Trump Won’ banner

Two men were escorted out of Yankee Stadium Thursday – one of them apparently in cuffs – after they hung a large pro-Trump banner from the second deck.

Video and photos show two men unveiling a “Trump Won Save America” flag on the first-base side of the stadium which prompted a Bronx cheer of boos from many in the crowd.

At one point, someone on the deck below jumps up, apparently trying to pull down the banner during the second game of a doubleheader between the Yankees and Blue Jays.

The two men appear to be struggling over the flag with a security guard in pictures taken by a photographer from the Post.

Later, a Facebook video shows additional security and stadium workers in the area as some fans can be heard shouting for them to be removed.

One of the two men then appears to have been 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.

Lindsey Adler, reporter with The Athletic 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.”

Another Twitter user asked “Is that in the un-vaxxed section?”
