Trump attended Louisiana State University and University of Alabama game in November, where he similarly received a warm welcome, as IJR has previously reported.
While Trump received a warm welcome at the November game, some protestors brought with them the famous Trump baby balloon, but it was deflated by an Alabama man who was upset by the anti-Trump protests.
Trump has had mixed receptions while attending sporting events, though. In October, he attended Game 5 of the World Series in Washington, D.C., and was met with a chorus of boos and “Lock him up” chants, as IJR has previously reported.
