New York (eTruePolitics) – The Trump Organization is in serious discussions to purchase the New York Mets, according to sources close to the White House, eTruePolitics has learned.  Current press secretary Sarah Huckleberry Sanders quickly denied rumors that Russian President Vladimir Putin would replace new Mets’ manager Mickey Callaway.

“I don’t know  how many times I have to tell you this,” said Sanders, “but they don’t play baseball in Russia. It’s too cold.”

Plans for “The New York Trumps” are said to include rebranding Citi Field “Donald Park,” and renaming the stadium’s main entrance “The Rotund,” replacing the current “Jackie Robinson Rotunda,” according to a source who requested anonymity before speaking to the press because he feared for his life.

Rumors that the current president was considering batting cleanup and playing centerfield for The Trumps were overblown, according to the source.

“After all, he’s old and fat,” the source explained.

Former N.J. Governor Chris Christie will be named ‘Senior Traffic Cone Consultant’ when the sale is completed, the source confirmed.
