Monday proved to be a jam-packed day for President Donald Trump. First, he addressed the American Farm Bureau Federation's annual convention in Nashville, Tennessee.

Then, he ventured to Atlanta for the College Football Playoff National Championship. At the game, he was escorted onto the field for the national anthem by six ROTC cadets.

After Zac Brown Band sang the anthem, Trump returned to the stands to take in the excitement of the championship game.

The president enjoyed the game from a private box, and along with Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, he was joined by the cadets who walked him onto the field:
