THE WAY TO TRUMP'S HEART: @POTUS admires a challenge coin presented to him by MARIANO RIVERA commemorating his receipt of the Medal of Freedom from TRUMP yesterday. TRUMP is fascinated by the coins, a collection of which is often visible behind his desk in the Oval Office.
Mariano Rivera received a Presidential Medal of Freedom yesterday:
President Trump: "Mariano Rivera has made extraordinary contributions to American sports, culture, and society. He is the most dominant relief pitcher in the history of baseball, & more than that, he has lived the American dream and shines as an example of American greatness."
Congratulations to Mariano Rivera on unanimously being elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame! Not only a great player but a great person. I am thankful for Mariano’s support of the Opioid Drug Abuse Commission and . 💯 #EnterSandman #HOF2019
Just a reminder that.... More people have walked on the moon (12) than men who have scored against Mariano Rivera in the postseason (11).
