President Donald Trump is expected at Monday’s College Football Playoff National Championship between Alabama and Georgia.
In an article published by USA Today, Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith said, “That’s great and all, but I’m not focused on politics.” Alabama offensive lineman Jonah Williams claimed Trump will just be “another person in the crowd.” Alabama coach Nick Saban, citing his respect for the office, said it would be an honor to have the president attend, regardless of who occupied the position. Georgia coach Kirby Smart termed a potential Trump appearance “a political event,” and therefore, something he’s not concerned about.
Things could get interesting, because Trump tweeted just days ago…

Ironically enough, Kendrick Lamar a very frequent critic of Trump is the halftime performer, with lyrics stating “Donald Trump is a chump, know how we feel, punk / Tell ’em that God comin’ / And Russia need a replay button, y’all up to something” in “The Heart Part 4.” He’ll perform just outside the stadium.”
The college championship will be the first one in Atlanta’s new football stadium and would mark Trump’s latest visit to the southeast.
