Earlier today, President Trump hosted the Boston Red Sox at the White House to celebrate their World Series Victory. While there is no word on whether or not they were served Big Mac’s in the state dining hall, there was a brief discussion afterwards with Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner on the visit.

So the Red Sox's Tom Werner spoke to reporters briefly and said this happened:— Elaina Plott (@elainaplott) May 9, 2019
Trump "is a pretty good raconteur of history and he did say that, uh—he was talking about Abraham Lincoln losing the war and said ‘Well, I know you guys have lost a game or two, but this was a war.’”
I’m confused. Does Trump think that Abraham Lincoln lost the Civil War? I’m not sure how else to read this?— Elaina Plott (@elainaplott) May 9, 2019
It certainly sounds like it. Wow.
Trump thinks Lincoln lost the Civil War? Holy shit how is this man the president? https://t.co/02xR46GPea— Emily C. Singer (@CahnEmily) May 9, 2019
I can help. I'm Adjunct Professor at Trump Univ Dept of History & Oldy Things. Abraham Lincoln, after which the Cadillac is named, was the founder of the Democratic Party. He lost the Civil War to Tim Apple. Fearing windmill cancer, Lincoln retired to investigate oranges.— Tomi T Ahonen (@tomiahonen) May 9, 2019
CNN: Boston Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner said Trump gave the team a personal tour of the Lincoln bedroom. He added that Trump "was talking about Abraham Lincoln losing the war, and he said I know you guys lost a game or two but this was a war."— Manu Raju (@mkraju) May 9, 2019
I’m sure he just misspoke and said “war” when he really meant to say “the Bowling Green Massacre”— Zack Hunt (@ZaackHunt) May 9, 2019

He later went on to say that it was because of the fact that the Southern Border needed a wall.— Bruce Donnelly ☘ (@DonnellyBruce) May 9, 2019
If you’re stupid enough to think Lincoln lost the fucking Civil War, then you’re too fucking stupid to be President.— Boston the Detroit sports fan. 🥰 (@GirlNamedBoston) May 9, 2019
