The first couple turned up in preparation for a "momentous game" between two undefeated college teams this season, LSU and Clemson.

White House reporter Mark Knoller took to Twitter to announce the arrival of the power couple at the Louisiana based Airport, along with a photo of the pair, looking elated as they acknowledged the crowd. He tweeted:

Melania stole the show in a $2000 shiny belted trench coat, keeping it all black with matching knee-high boots. Her husband kept it simple in his signature corporate look, sporting a red tie over his navy-blue suit and matching wool coat.

The pair was greeted with a memorable welcome, as the venue resounded with thunderous applause, and a continuous chant of "U.S.A" before the game commenced.

The 73-year-old is reportedly a fan of LSU, as he was said to have placed a call to the team earlier to commend their efforts. The coach recalled:

"He was very pleasant to talk to. Very complimentary of our football team, our coaching staff...Complimentary of the way we played all year and wished us good luck in the game."

This is not the first time President Donald Trump would show his support for the college football league since assuming his seat at the white house.

Last November, the businessman showed his support to the young athletes by showing up at the games to witness the Alabama 46-41 defeat against the Crimsons.

Donald Trump's appearance earned him cheers from the spectators at the Tuscaloosa stadium, who were impressed by the gesture of honor.

As the power couple shows their devotion to the budding athletes amid busy schedules, they continue to gain fandom from the younger generations.
