‘USA’: Trump’s national championship reception rivals Alabama-LSU game in Tuscaloosa
President Donald J. Trump famously received a raucous standing ovation when he attended the University of Alabama Crimson Tide’s game against LSU in Tuscaloosa’s Bryant-Denny Stadium this past college football season.
The president on Monday evening again attended a marquee matchup featuring LSU, this time facing Clemson in the College Football Playoff National Championship.
Just as Trump was greeted during the SEC game in Alabama, national championship game attendees proudly belted out patriotic cheers of “USA-USA-USA” when the president and First Lady Melania Trump took to the field before the Bayou Bengals and Tigers kicked off.
