Trump Protests Planned For College Football National Championship Game

But then President Donald Trump decided to make an appearance on Monday, presumably playing to his base in the Deep South states of Alabama and Georgia.

The Atlanta chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is launching a protest Monday evening against President Donald Trump's potential attendance of a national college football game.

ESPN told The Associated Pressthat it has attempted to set up an interview with Trump during Monday's game but is not hopeful that he will agree to be interviewed.

The New York Post reports that the NAACP is encouraging those attending the National Championship game to wear white and hold anti-Trump signs.

He seems most in his element when he's right on the cusp of calling a young black man "uppity", particularly when that young black man is a football player who has the temerity not to stand for the national anthem. When he arrived nearly an hour later - presumably passing a small group of protesters outside CNN headquarters - there were resounding boos.

A built-in keyboard gives the phone's system ease in typing, as well as navigation, app selection, and searching the web. The physical design of the laptop is similar to the Blade Stealth in that it sports a unibody CNC aluminum chassis.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson says the halftime song at the College Football Championship game should be "We Shall Overcome".

But the president's eldest son Donald Trump Jr. denied there had been any jeering. Trump is the first sitting president to attend a college football game since Barack Obama attended the 2011 Army-Navy game.

In front of tens of thousands packed in to watch Alabama and Georgia faces off in a National Championship playoff game in Atlanta's $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Trump appeared to mumble his way through it.

The White House says its plan calls for expediting federal permitting to allow for broadband internet expansion in rural areas and for making it easier for providers to place cell towers on federal lands.
