It is not every time that President Donald Trump gets a standing ovation from a crowd, but fans at the college national championship game in Louisiana were all too willing to show the President some love.
As soon as the crowd caught sight of the President and Melania, they all stood up and cheered, clapping and chanting endearing words at him.
Dan Scavino, the Assistant to the President and Director of Social Media at the White House, posted a video showing the behind-the-scenes moments just before Trump and Melania stepped out for the National anthem.
The video showed President Trump and Melania waiting as the announcer called them out, and as soon as they stepped out, they were received by cheering fans. Scavino captioned the video:
"President Trump and First Lady Melania attend the #NationalChampionship at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana…"
When the President returned to his seat at the VIP section, he and Melania were seen discussing with actor Vince Vaughn. The actor also got a presidential handshake after their conversation.
