An inflatable figure depicting a baby Trump wearing a diaper, seen at protests around the world, made an appearance.
His reception at the showdown between Louisiana State and Alabama contrasted with the scene at Game 5 of the World Series in Washington, where was booed, and the mixed response to his appearance at a martial arts fight in NY.
At the game, Mr. Trump sat in a box with first lady Melania Trump and several prominent Alabama lawmakers, including Senator Richard Shelby and Congressman Bradley Byrne. But there were more pro-Trump signs. There were flags emblazoned with "Trump 2020" and banners that read: "Keep America Great Trump 2020".

"If somebody attacked my wife, said she was ugly - a political opponent, I would spend the rest of my life just going after them, making sure that they paid for it whereas Ted Cruz can not hug Donald Trump enough", Scarborough said.
Ahead of Trump's visit to Alabama's campus, a message was sent by a school official, warning that anybody sitting in the student section would be instantly "removed" if they exhibited any "disruptive behavior, according to the Washington Post".
Trump won the 2016 election in Alabama with 62.1 per cent of the vote.
Alabama wide receiver Henry Ruggs III said, "Just for him even wanting to come to this game, it just shows, like I said, the magnitude of the game". LSU beat Alabama, 46-41, Alabama's first loss of the season and first home loss in 31 games, stretching back to 2015.

Sessions has rarely appeared in public since leaving the Trump administration.
Political strategist Guy Cecil ridiculed former Attorney General Jeff Sessions' Senate campaign announcement video Friday, suggesting he was acting like a hostage to President Trump. He attended a rally in Monroe, Louisiana, on Wednesday and he'll be back in the state this coming week, two days before Louisiana voters have their say. Mr. Trump said on Friday that he has not decided if he will endorse a candidate in the race, saying Sessions has a lot of "tough competition". In announcing his support for the president in his first campaign video, Sessions suggests he understands the difficulty of mounting a political comeback in Alabama, where the president's approval rating is higher than anywhere else in the country, without support from the White House.
