An outspoken MLB star throughout his career, the temperamental Dykstra has forever remained a controversial presence. Heavily talented with athletic skills, his scandals have made him an infamous sporting personality. Having played for the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies during his playing tenure, he won the World Series in 1986. Nowadays, the retired three-time All-Star Dykstra can often get noticed as an active participant in socio-political discussions online.

In recent times, Dykstra has persistently had a say on the present US administration’s handling of the Russia-Ukraine war. He has remained highly critical of the US Government’s stance on the issue. Not too long ago, Dykstra lashed out at Time magazine for honoring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. So this time around, he wasn’t any different while expressing his opinions.

Notably, Zelensky recently visited the White House to address Congress. This was the Ukrainian President’s first foreign visit since the war began. The Ukrainian President made his trip to secure support from the USA for his war efforts. Notably, the US Government has thus pledged a $1.8 billion package to Ukraine as a display of support.
So Dykstra took to Twitter to share his opinion on the news, quoting, “Someone explain to me why everyone cares so much about Ukraine, not an ally, not even in NATO, as opposed to the off-and-on deadly Tigray Conflict in East Africa? Can’t seem to figure out why! And, yes, in asking, I’m quite aware, Representative Jeffries, that you are African American.”
Therefore, another instance of Dykstra showing his discontent over the US administrative decisions. Though, apart from the Ukraine-Russia war, the controversial MLB legend has also voiced his opinion on other contemporary issues.

With the debate of a potential handover of Twitter ownership, Dykstra chose his own pick. In case Elon Musk steps down as the CEO, Dykstra pointed out television show host Britt McHenry as his candidate for the job. Thus, whatever the subject matter, Dykstra will continue with his bold thoughts.
What did the US Government have to say?
According to a report by The Guardian, speaking to Mr. Zelensky in the White House, US President Joe Biden said, “You will never stand alone. Because we understand in our bones that Ukraine’s fight is part of something much bigger. The American people know that if we stand by in the face of such blatant attacks on liberty and democracy, and the core principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity, the world would surely face worse consequences.”
