NEW ORLEANS — For the third time in three months, President Donald Trump has made a public appearance at a college football game. And for the third consecutive trip, he’s been greeted by raucous cheers.
Trump arrived at the College Football Playoff title game between No. 1 LSU and No. 3 Clemson at the Superdome on Monday with the expectation of a warm welcome. Both schools are located in states that have voted red in recent presidential elections, and Trump received cheers from the Southern fan bases when he was introduced before the national anthem to a massive ovation and chants of “U-S-A! U-S-A!”
Trump attended part of one of the regular season’s marquee games between LSU and Alabama in Tuscaloosa. He also appeared at the annual game between Army and Navy, which was held in Philadelphia. Both also greeted him with distinct ovations.
