Donald Trump: Alex Rodriguez Sucks, Ban is a "Great Victory" For NYC

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Donald Trump is weighing in on Major League Baseball's suspension of Alex Rodriguez, and suffice it to say it couldn't come soon or long enough.

"It is a great victory for NYC that A-Rod will never wear pinstripes again," Trump tweeted, then added in video form on Vine, "@arod sucks."

"He's making a deal because he's guilty as hell."

A-Rod, of course, did wear pinstripes Monday night. He is appealing the 211-game suspension and is free to play pending a hearing - months away.

He only went 1-4 in his 2013 debut at least, D.

Trump also RAILED against the star and the Yankees organization earlier this year once Alex Rodriguez's link to the Biogenesis clinic was uncovered.

"I can't believe the Yankees continue to pay A Rod - they have a perfect right to stop paying (and should have stopped a long time ago)," he Tweeted.

"George Steinbrenner would have done a major number on A Rod - there is no way he would have gotten paid, even with the help of the union!"

A-Rod's 211-game ban is expected to be effective this week and last through the end of the 2014 season, but again, he can play while he appeals it.

An arbitrator will hear the case in November at the earliest.

While Trump is known for his no-holds-barred social media approach, he seems to be particularly fired up about the embattled sports star and his PED use.

"Druggie @AROD is now scheming to sue the @Yankees," he wrote.

"He will go down as the biggest sports embarrassment of all time!"

Time will tell if that's true ... but the Donald will surely try to convince us some more as the Yankees flounder and the process plays out in the coming months.
