President Biden says he'd "strongly support" moving the Major League Baseball All-Star game out of Atlanta as a rebuke to strict new voting restrictions in the state. The president said on ESPN Wednesday night that the curbs are "just not right."

"This is Jim Crow on steroids, what they are doing in Georgia and 40 other states," he said. "What it's all about — imagine passing a law saying you cant provide water or food for  someone standing in a line to vote. Can't do that. Come on? Or you close a polling place at 5 o'clock when working people just get off?

"This is all about keeping working folks and ordinary folks that I grew up with from being able to vote. Come on."
