Alabama reportedly preparing to host President Trump for the LSU game
With No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama battling on Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium, it is likely that security in the campus area would already be at a higher alert than usual.
Now, with reports that President Donald Trump will be attending the game, the security will be an all-time high.
Per Bama Central, the University of Alabama is making preparations for the current President to attend the mega matchup on Saturday afternoon, and it won’t be the first time he has seen the Crimson Tide play in person.
At the 2018 College Football Playoff Championship Game between Nick Saban’s team and Georgia, Trump was seen on the sidelines for pregame and the national anthem before sitting in a box during the Tide’s 26-23 overtime victory to give them the national title. Before last year’s annual rivalry game between Army and Navy, he was part of the pregame festivities as he handled the coin toss.
This game was already big. Now it has the attention of the most powerful man in the country.
