What the booing of Trump says about his presidency

NOBODY OUGHT TO BE SURPRISED that the president was booed at Nats Park, in a city where more than 90% of voters choose his opponent in 2016. What was striking, though, was that the reaction came only hours after President DONALD TRUMP proudly announced the death of Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, in a U.S. military raid.

WE’RE NOT SURE what the president expected to happen, but closeups of his face during the crowd’s reaction as name was announced on the stadium PA show a smile hardening into a slight scowl. How will he react today?
