Crowd Cheers for Donald Trump at LSU-Alabama Game


President Donald Trump was greeted with loud cheers from the crowd at Bryant-Denny Stadium during the game between LSU and Alabama on Saturday afternoon.

As Trump and First Lady Melania Trump appeared on the screen, the fans gave them a standing ovation. The crowd's enthusiastic cheers drowned out the few boos around the stadium. 

The rivalry football game is the third sporting event Trump has attended in the past two weeks. He received a loud chorus of boos from the crowd at Game 5 of the World Series between the Nationals and Astros on Oct. 27. Fans in attendance loudly yelled "lock him up," a chant Trump supporters began in 2016 that was directed at his opponent and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Six days later, Trump visited UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden in New York and became the first president to attend an MMA event. He was met with a mixed reaction of cheers and boos from the crowd, and one fan even held up a Trump 2020 flag.
