President Trump Plans to Attend LSU at Alabama Showdown

Christopher Walsh

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — BamaCentral has learned that the University of Alabama is making preparations for President Donald Trump to attend the LSU game at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday.

Numerous sources have confirmed his expected visit. 

The potential No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup, depending on the initial rankings by the College Football Playoff committee Tuesday night, will be shown on CBS at 2:30p.m. CT. 

The high-profile game was already attracting a lot of attention, including ESPN's pregame show "College Gameday." However, the stage had to be moved due to security concerns, from the Walk of Champions just outside the stadium to near Denny Chimes on the Quad. 

The stage for the Marty & McGee show and SEC Nation will be set up on the lawn of Moore Hall (across University Boulevard). 

The President attended the National Championship Game in Atlanta at the end of the 2017 season. He left at halftime, with the Crimson Tide losing, before Alabama came back to defeat Georgia in overtime, 26-23.

He was on the field for the National Anthem and sat in a private box behind the Alabama sideline.

President Trump departed the stadium during halftime when Georgia led Alabama 13-0.

“It was truly a win for the ages,” President Trump said when Alabama later visited the White House on April 10. “I don’t know if you know, but I was there.”

He added: “It will go down as one of the most exciting finishes in college football history — of any sport.”

The ceremony at the White House was held on the South Lawn, but beforehand President Trump welcomed head coach Nick Saban university President Stuart R. Bell and Athletic Director Greg Byrne, into the Oval Office.

President Trump has attended a couple of recent sporting events, including a World Series game in Washington D.C. between the Nationals and Houston Astros on Oct. 27.

When shown on the Jumbotron fans booed, with some chanting "Lock him up.”

Over the weekend he also attended a UFC match in New York’s Madison Square Garden, and was again booed. 

It'll be President Trump's second visit to the state this year. In March, he and First Lady Melania Trump traveled to Lee County to survey tornado damage. He meet with first responders, survivors, and local officials.

Meanwhile, President Trump welcomed the Nationals to the White House on Monday:

Please, even if you don't like Trump, show some class. If you are there and can't bring yourself to applaud the POTUS, sit on your hands and keep your mouth shut.

Trump won with 62% of the vote, so logic would be roughly 40% of the fans in attendance won’t be supporters. I’d add people have every right to boo away, the respecting the office of the President is not in effect if the occupant clearly is not respecting his constituents, US Law or the constitution.

!!!!! YES !!!!! The GREAT Potus is going to witness the GREAT Nick Saban slap GravelEd all over the field. Saturday will be a GREAT day to be a TRUE American, unlike the leftist regime who's only contribution these last 3 years has been...

  1. Showing how pathetically desperate they are.
  2. Showing that reaching a whole new level of American hatred is in fact possible.
  3. Showing they have absolutely no class, dignity, intelligence or integrity.
  4. The ability to reach for straws, and to make up the most ignorant attempts at defrauding President Donald J Trump

God Bless America and God Bless President Donald J Trump

If he can't get cheered here there's nothing left but NASCAR and cow chip throwing contests.

Can you imagine the meltdown he's gonna have if Trump gets booed here? Forget crying like he did in DC, I'm guessing a full blown separation with reality. Think pig's blood and "Carrie." http://bit.ly/2NEpZMm

I don’t care about the politics. I object to any politician coming and adding to the logistics issues not to mention the tax payers paying for an ego trip so a politician, Any politician, can effectively campaign. Stay away. He doesn’t care about Alabama football and all he will do is cause problems coming.

Stay away

Well well, after all that went through at the last game which he attended, is he really planning on doing this? That is another case but he is announcing that he will be attending it and giving chance for a rally of people to come up with banners this time to embarrass him. Good Luck With that Trump! assignment writing service

He's using the LSU and Bama game in hopes people will relate with him better. We all know he's not a sports fan, he plays golf, badly. The people of LSU and Bama are being used!
