Trump stands on field for National Anthem at college game

President Donald Trump stands on the field for the National Anthem before the start of the NCAA National Championship game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium between Georgia and Alabama, Monday, Jan. 8, 2018, in Atlanta.

The Monday protest, set to take place during the University of Atlanta vs. University of Georgia game, is focused on protesting Trump and his "racist" policies, Richard Rose, the NAACP Atlanta chapter president told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Ticket prices for tonight's national title game are soaring at the moment, as fans from both sides as well as celebrities prepare for what should be an exciting finish to the college football season.

He said that Trump "stood stoic at midfield, hand over heart, mouthing words".

Joe Arpaio announces bid for US Senate seat from Arizona
District Judge denied that request in October, but Arpaio's lawyers have filed an appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Arpaio, in his email to supporters, said he would defend gun owners, oppose abortion and work to reduce the national debt.


The act, to protest systemic racism and police brutality, was condemned by Trump, who said the National Football League should suspend the player.

Most of the college players remained in their locker rooms during the anthem.

Trump is expected to join Alabama's radio broadcast for an interview at the end of the first quarter with play-by-play man Eli Gold and analyst Phil Savage.

To many, Trump's tweets were even more jarring because he took on an icon of the civil rights movement during the holiday weekend celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.'s birth.

The ranking also marks the fourth consecutive year MSU's Distance MBA program has ranked in the top 25 nationally. Throughout both undergraduate and graduate studies, a couple Philly-area schools ranked among the best.


Thankfully, protesters were able to get their message across without being threatened by pro-Trump supporters.

"Trump has made a awful decision and is disrupting (the game) with his presence", the NAACP's local chapter said in a Facebook post on Sunday.

Update 10:31 p.m. ET: The College Football Playoff responded to a request for comment, saying the decision to keep the teams in the locker room was made on November 1.

A network will often seek to interview the president when he attends a game it is televising.
