Donald Trump ripped into the social media mob’s ‘cancel culture’ after the Cleveland Indians announced they will drop their team name after 105 years due to protests from Woke fans and supposed Native American groups.
‘Oh no! What is going on? This is not good news, even for “Indians”. Cancel culture at work!’ Trump tweeted on Sunday.
The Major League franchise will announce as early as next week that they will move away from the moniker which the woke liberal declared is racist.

The New York Times reported on Sunday night that it’s not clear what the team’s new name will be and if they will be taking any steps beyond the transition.
But as TuskerDaily reported earlier. Cleveland should pick a name that best represents their organization…
Cleveland Indians throwing away one of the most storied histories in Major League Baseball…But Not Until 2022
One source told the New York Times that Cleveland planned to keep the Indians names and uniforms for the 2021 season, and the shift to a new identity will begin in 2022.
The team started to move away from their Indians’ identity when they stopped using their mascot, Chief Wahoo.
Other major sports organizations including the Kansas City Chiefs, Chicago Blackhawks, and Atlanta Braves have insisted a name change is not in their plans.
