The Trumps walked onto the field to loud cheers, and waved to the crowd before striding with  an escort of ROTC cadets from both schools to the 40-yard line for the singing of the National Anthem. Behind them, an enormous U.S. flag was unfurled across the field.

The Trumps applauded after Louisiana native Lauren Daigle performed the National Anthem.

Asked by Karen Travers of ABC News which team he liked in the game, the president replied with a smile, “Both.”

Several members of Congress were attending the game with the Trumps, including Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott of South Carolina, who flew with the first couple to the game aboard Air Force One.
