Trump receives warm welcome at Alabama football game

Trump receives warm welcome at Alabama football game

The popular protest symbol against President Donald Trump was floating among the throngs of college football fans in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, on Saturday when it was attacked by a man, an organizer of the protest told CNN. That would be Alabama's first loss in the series since 2011.

But it's already clear that President Donald Trump's enmity toward him, along with an established field of competitors, means he'll have to battle his way to the Republican nomination.

Former Alabama star and Heisman Trophy victor Mark Ingram knew what was wrong with this game and why the Tide lost: President Donald Trump.

There was also plenty of bipartisan grumbling about the long lines to get in to the game due to enhanced security.

The protest blimp was set up in a park less than a mile from the stadium before the start of the University of Alabama - LSU football game. There were flags emblazoned with "Trump 2020" and banners that read: "Keep America Great Trump 2020".

On November 3, Trump returned to his hometown of NY to take in a UFC fight, where he was greeted with both cheers and jeers when he walked into Madison Square Garden.

He's headed to friendlier turf for Saturday's big game.

Sessions' candidacy could further divide the vote of Republicans who oppose Moore. "When I left President Trump's cabinet, did I write a tell-all book? No".

It's expected that the President would campaign against him in Alabama. Alabama's student government association warned students against being disruptive, but said their First Amendment rights would not be muzzled.

"As everyone knows, President Trump and I have had our ups and downs", Efe news quoted Sessions as saying in a statement posted on his campaign website on Saturday.

The couple was recognized on the scoreboard early in the first quarter of the game. Jones, the first Democrat to represent the Yellowhammer State in 25 years, is considered the most vulnerable incumbent in the Senate. Two years later he was elected to the US senate from Alabama, the seat he held for 20 years. 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 head to polls.

A Senate comeback bid from former Attorney General Jeff Sessions has upended the Republican race for U.S. Senate in Alabama.

The announcement came a year after President Trump fired Sessions from his job, and their relationship will now be a determining factor in the race.

"He ought to win that race, but he has to win it on the ground", Shelby said, insisting that Sessions would be a "formidable candidate".

Shortly before the game, a man in an Alabama shirt allegedly stabbed the balloon repeatedly to deflate it while screaming at protesters, according to ABC 33/40.
