President Trump received a loud, standing ovation at the Alabama-LSU football game Saturday afternoon.

He and first lady Melania Trump were recognized on the scoreboard early in the first quarter of the game.

This is the latest appearance the president has made at a sporting event, though it stands in stark contrast to other, less friendly receptions he’s received.

When President Trump attended Game 5 of the Word Series in Washington, he was met with heavy boos and “lock him up” chants.

Last weekend, the president attended UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden and was met with more boos and scattered applause.

However, Bryant-Denny Stadium, one of college football’s largest stadiums, erupted in applause when President Trump was shown.

Joining the president at the game were several Alabama lawmakers, including Sen. Richard Shelby (R).
