In an announcement launched late Monday night, Trump shattered any hopes Dolan had for a profitable marketing campaign run by means of Ohio: “Anybody that changes the name of the once storied Cleveland Indians to the Cleveland Guardians should not be running for the United States Senate representing the Great People of Ohio. The Atlanta Braves didn’t change their name, and the Florida State Seminoles didn’t change their chant, but Cleveland has, and they were there first.”
Trump went on so as to add: “Despite this, a man named Matt Dolan, the son of the owner of the team, said he is against Cancel Culture. Do those two things really work together? In any event, I know of at least one person in the race who I won’t be endorsing. The Republican Party has too many RINOs!”
Dolan has partial possession of the Indians, however no formal function throughout the group. His father, Larry, is the staff’s principal proprietor and his brother, Paul, is the Indians’ chairman and CEO. Upon saying the staff’s resolution to alter nicknames, Paul Dolan launched a letter to Cleveland followers that stated: “the name change will be difficult for many of us, and the transition will take time. It is our hope and belief this change will divert us from a divisive path, and instead steer us towards a future where our fans, city, and region are all united as Cleveland Guardians.”
Little did the Dolans know, the title change wouldn’t solely divert “us” from the trail to unification, it will additionally divert Matt Dolan from his path to the U.S. Senate.
