Pres. Donald Trump plans to attend Alabama-Georgia title game

Pres. Donald Trump plans to attend Alabama-Georgia title game

President Donald Trump will take a short break from politics to get back to football.

Trump and First Lady Melania Trump are expected to be the guests of Nick Ayers, who is Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff and a Georgia native, according to USA TODAY.

Georgia and Alabama set up an all-SEC championship game with wins in the College Football Playoff semifinals.

There was a national uproar after Bama and LSU played for the 2012 BCS National Championship.

This will be Alabama's third straight appearance in the College Football Playoff title game.

Monday plans to be quite busy for Donald.

Atlanta Police spokesman Carlos Campos said the department is working with the Secret Service to ratchet up security for his arrival.

The game is scheduled for 7 p.m. CST at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, and ESPN will carry the broadcast. His swipes came while attacking Representative John Lewis, the civil-rights hero whose district includes Atlanta, which Trump said is in "horrible shape", "falling apart", and "crime infested".

Trump's visit comes nearly a half-century after President Richard Nixon attended the 1969 showdown between No. 1 Texas and No. 2 Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas. "We look forward to a fantastic national championship between Georgia and Alabama next week".
