President Donald Trump arrived in Atlanta on Monday night to attend the National Championship Game between Alabama and Georgia.
Prior to Trump’s arrival, one stadium entrance was locked for more than an hour, leaving some fans waiting in the rain for the president’s arrival. When Trump arrived, he didn’t get a warm welcome.
As seen in the video below, shared by CNN’s Andy Scholes on Twitter, a group of fans booed as Trump arrived at the stadium:

Some people were planning protests after it was announced that Trump would attend the game. During the 2016 election, Trump won Georgia and Alabama, but there has been some negative reception for his arrival.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution shared some pictures of Trump protesters in Atlanta prior to kickoff Monday:
Protesters gathered in front of the CNN Center. Refuse Fascism ATL organizers unfurled an anti-Trump banner and spoke into a megaphone about how @realDonaldTrump must go. More on the anticipated protests here => https://t.co/uOINy1jRHp #UGA2ATL pic.twitter.com/qBwsmyjUiw
