(National Sentinel) Presidential: President Donald J. Trump attended Monday night’s college National Championship game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs.

As the president entered the field accompanied by ROTC students from both universities, the crowd erupted in cheers at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz stadium, the home of NFL’s Atlanta Falcons.

Trump waved to the crowd a number of times before taking his place near the middle of the field before the Zac Brown Band sang the National Anthem, standing with his hand over his heart as the band sang.

Reports noted that some of the 71,000 fans jeered at the president, but those were drowned out by the cheers.

Watch (per Michael Sheridan/Twitter):


Alabama won its fifth national title under head coach Nick Saban with a 26-23 overtime win. In all, Saban has won six national titles; he won with LSU in 2003, before taking over the head coaching duties at the Crimson Tide in the 2007-2008 season.
