President Donald Trump just made his grand entrance into the College Football National Championship, and he was given a full standing ovation with a loud chant of U.S.A.
The President walked onto the field just before kickoff with the first lady Melania Trump, and when he walked across the grass, the crowd started to chant U.S.A.
It got so loud, he stopped, turned and acknowledged the crowd by waving and clapping.
The stadium is split with Clemson Tigers fans and LSU Tigers fans, but it seems they all felt a bit patriotic before the game started.
Of course, you would expect the football game may have a large Trump following in attendance but on the national broadcast it seemed, there were not many boos at all.
“Listen to this crowd ROAR when @realDonaldTrump and the First Lady walk on the field at the National Championship I don’t care if he’s booed in Washington DC This is how real Americans feel about our president Incredible!” one person tweeted alongside the video.

As you know, Trump has had a few different reactions when entering stadiums and arenas for big sporting events.
As we reported, The President attended the Army vs. Navy football game earlier this year and unlike a previous appearance, he received a standing ovation.
Several people shared the video of Trump on social media walking onto Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia before the game started for the game’s coin toss.
The game was the 120th meeting between the Military Academy at West Point and the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis.

Navy won 31-7, but commander-in-chief appreciated the support from both arms of the military. In this case, the crowd went nuts for the President and launching into a “U.S.A” chant.
“If anyone tries to tell you that President @realDonaldTrump was not welcome at the #ArmyNavyGame – show them this: The Commander-in-Chief arriving at his seat during the break. Spontaneous, stadium-wide applause & roars from a crowd for POTUS :us:Ya won’t see this angle on TV!” one person tweeted with the video.
Trump also visited both teams in their respective locker rooms to wish them luck before the game.
Donald Trump didn’t have the same luck while making an appearance at UFC 244 alongside both of his sons. Trump was on hand to watch Jorge Masvidal battle Nate Diaz, but the crowd booed when he entered the Vegas arena.
“Trump got the welcome he deserved today as he was greeted by protesters outside MSG and with loud boos inside as he entered for #UFC244,” one person tweeted.
The two teams are battling it out for the title, but it seems Donald Trump already scored himself a win.
