Two Donald Trump supporters were removed from Yankee Stadium during a Thursday night game after they displayed a large banner declaring “Trump Won Save America,” according to videos and photos posted to social media.
The men drew roaring booing as they unfurled the banner from the second deck behind first base.
In a video posted by Sports Illustrated reporter Max Goodman, fans continued to boo the sign as one person could be seen attempting to pull down the banner from his seat below the two men.
Another video shows security guards arriving before they confiscated the banner and appeared to handcuff one of the men. Security officials led the men away, prompting a round of cheers inside the stadium. The incident took place during the second game of a doubleheader between the Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays.

Now we have extremely loud cheering as the conspiracy theory banner people are led out of the section by security.
