President Donald Trump received a standing ovation during his appearance in the college football game between the universities of Louisiana and Alabama Crimson Tide.
Trump appeared on one of the main balconies of the Bryant-Denny Stadium in Alabama, and immediately the crowd received him with cheers, squeals and shouts of support, an ovation that lasted about three minutes.
The president went to see one of the most attractive national games between the Alabama Crimson Tide universities and Louisiana State University, numbers 3 and 2 of the general ranking of collegiate football this year.
Accompanied by the first lady Melania and several of his collaborators, the president greeted the fans while his image and the colors of the US flag appeared on the stadium screens.
Trump and Melania were all smiles and waves while the crowd burst into cheers, said the sports news portal 247Sports.com.
Trump tweeted at night about his experience in Tuscaloosa after the game and posted several photos of what is already considered the game of the year in college football: “What an incredible game and place!”
The news portal NBC News played on Twitter the moment Trump's presentation at the stadium.
But it was not a surprise appearance, as many might think. The president's presentation at the stands was planned since last week.
During this week's coach conference call, prior to the meeting, Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban said it would be an honor to see President Trump in the stands.
“I think it's an honor that the president of the United States is interested enough to come to the game. I am sure that we will do our best to welcome you, ”he said.
For his part, the coach of the Louisiana State University team, Ed Orgeron, last Wednesday shared a similar feeling about Trump's possible visit.
“I think it's good. If the president wants to come to a great game like this, that's fine. I just hope he feels right in the middle and claps on both sides. I think the president must be neutral. If you want to encourage LSU, I will appreciate your applause, but obviously, I don't think the President should encourage either team. I think it should be right in the middle. ”
