Trump's presence was announced on the video board and on television. His emergence was shadowed by a chorus of boos from the crowd. There were even chants of 'Lock Him Up' that could clearly be held throughout the stadium.
He hasn't made any comment or post on Twitter since the scene unfolded.
The President, along with his wife Melania, arrived at the game shortly after it began. The announcement was broadcast following the third inning. It wasn't until the next inning that the chants began to travel around the stadium.
Before Sunday's game, news came out that the Nationals owners requested to not have to respond to an invitation to sit with the President during the contest. They did not want to be put in a position to decide to sit or not sit with Trump, according to WUSA9.
Instead, Trump found himself in another suite. In attendance in his suite were Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C), Reps. Steve Scalise (R-La.), Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), according to USA Today.
The Nationals-Astros series was tied at 2-2 heading into Sunday's game.
