It was an emotional and patriotic anthem, complete with chants of “USA!” afterward.
Here is a clip:
Trump is expected to do a radio spot with Alabama radio sometime during the broadcast on Monday night.
His arrival has caused some trouble for fans at the stadium, including significant delays getting into the game.
Alabama is roughly a 5-point favorite at kickoff.
