When President Trump and first lady Melania Trump walked out onto the field before Monday's College Football Playoff National Championship game, the crowd went wild.

Deafening applause, cheers, and chants of "U-S-A!" rang through the stadium in Louisiana as the couple arrived for the game between Louisiana State University and Clemson University.

Trump also received an enthusiastic greeting at a college football game between the Army and Navy teams in December 2019.

🔦 The warm welcomes were in stark contrast to Trump's reception at a World Series Game played in Washington National's stadium in fall 2019. That crowd booed the president.
