Donald Trump won the presidential election Tuesday night defeating Hillary Clinton, and like many others around the world, sports figures used social media to react.
Cleveland Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer tweeted “M.A.G.A!!!” for Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan. Timberwolves Spanish point guard Ricky Rubio was on the other side of the aisle, tweeting “Really America?” Twins minor league pitcher Zack Jones tweeted "Stop the fight."
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban asked for people to give Trump a chance, but lobby for what you believe is right.
Here’s how athletes and other sports figures reacted to Trump’s victory:
