“Trump sat in a box owned by Jim Wilson, a real estate businessman from Alabama. The president was joined by Louisiana Republican Reps. Clay Higgins, Mike Johnson, Ralph Abraham and Garret Graves; Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., and Alabama Republican Reps. Robert Aderholt, Bradley Byrne and Gary Palmer,” ESPN reports.
The visit marks President Trump’s third different sporting event attended in just the last few weeks. The president attended Game 5 of the World Series between the Nationals and the Astros and he became the first sitting president in U.S. history to attend a UFC fight last weekend. In addition, the president also hosted the Nationals at the White House after their World Series victory.
This, however, is not Trump’s first time attending a big time SEC matchup. The president was also in attendance when Alabama took on Georgia for the national championship at the end of the 2017 season.
