The Houston Astros might have won their game against the Washington Nationals on Sunday night, but after President Trump arrived at the stadium, the score was definitively Trump: 0, Crowd: 1.

The president attended game 5 of the World Series on Sunday at Nationals Park in Washington D.C. Though Trump was not announced when he entered the stadium, the moment he was shown on the jumbotron, the crowd almost immediately started to boo and chant “lock him up.” (The phrase is a reference to the “lock her up” chant many Trump fans employ at his rallies, aimed at Trump’s 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton.)

As seen in videos from the game, Trump continued to smile and clap after the boos started, but eventually his and First Lady Melania Trump’s smiles began to fade away.

Trump watched the game from a skybox and was joined by a group of his Republican colleagues, including Senator Lindsey Graham, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise.

Jennifer Jacobs, senior White House reporter for Bloomberg News, reported that Trump also received some boos when he first arrived at the game.

Surprisingly, President Trump has yet to tweet about the game, but the official White House account did retweet a photo from the U.S. Secret Service, showing a Secret Service member and a dog sweeping the locker room.

The Nationals and the Astros will face off again in Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday, October 29—but likely with a little less excitement in the stands.
