AP Exclusive: MLB suspends political donations after DC riot

NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball is suspending all political contributions in the wake of last week’s invasion of the U.S. Capitol by a mob loyal to President Donald Trump.

Following the insurrection last week by Trump supporters while Congress attempted to certify the results of the presidential election, many companies have said they will avoid making donations to members of the House and Senate who voted to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victory over Trump.

Others, like MLB, have postponed political giving to both political parties altogether. The National Football League also said it will reconsider its donations.
