Donald & Melania Trump Are All Smiles as They Land in Louisiana for the 2020 College Football Championship
The first couple of the United States, President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania Trump, stormed Louisiana in style to grace the 2020 college Football Championship games.
In honor of the vibrant United States college athletes, President Donald Trump took time-off the desk to attend the College Football Playoff National Championship game.
The 73-year-old business mogul and his wife, Lady Melania Trump, graced the occasion all smiles as they touched down at the Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.
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:
"Pres and Mrs. Trump arrive in New Orleans for tonight's Clemson/LSU championship game."
Danny Monteverde, a WWL-TV reporter, also tweeted about the president's arrival, sharing a close-up picture of the presidential jet, Airforce One touching down at the Armstrong International Airport.
The games would mark the championship finals of the 150th anniversary of the United States' college football, and several notable figures were at the event.
Donald Trump's appearance earned him cheers from the spectators at the Tuscaloosa stadium.
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.
