Trump Alabama-LSU game

Alabama SGA

The famed giant balloon depicting President Donald Trump as a baby was stabbed and destroyed on Saturday during protests outside of Trump's appearance at the LSU-Alabama game in Tuscaloosa, according to the Montgomery Advertiser. But given his widespread name recognition, Sessions is expected to become an immediate frontrunner and clear out most of the primary field.

Elsewhere, one protester carried a sign that said, "Roll Tide Impeach 45", and a woman held a signing saying she had sold her game ticket and donated the money to the Alabama Democratic Party. In January 2018, Trump attended the Alabama-Georgia national title game in Atlanta.

Mr. Trump left during the third quarter, but later tweeted that it was a "great game!"

Sessions also criticized fellow Republicans for not working hard enough to advance Trump's policies. One woman wore an oversized red MAGA hat and carried a sign saying: "Make BAMA #1 Again".

Presidents have long used sporting events to woo support, but they also give fans a chance to express their own political leanings.

He knew he was heading to friendlier turf Saturday. Over the past few months, House Democrats have consolidated findings from those probes to formalize an impeachment inquiry against Trump. Alabama's student government association warned students against being disruptive, but said their First Amendment rights will not being muzzled.


Trump won the 2016 election in Alabama with 62.1 per cent of the vote.

"Regardless of your political views, that's pretty cool, having the president at the game", said LSU quarterback Joe Burrow. "I haven't made a determination", Trump told reporters Friday morning, when he was asked if he would endorse Sessions' run for U.S. Senate in Alabama.

It remains unknown how Trump's repeated criticism of his former attorney general would influence a Sessions campaign.

Sessions was the first senator to back Trump's upstart campaign and worked to champion conservative causes as attorney general, but the president has never forgiven Sessions for withdrawing from overseeing the Russian Federation investigation led by former special counsel Robert Mueller.

The Republican senators who wrote in support of Sessions include Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby of Alabama, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, and Budget Committee Chairman Mike Enzi of Wyoming. "Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job, and I would have picked somebody else", he said during an interview with the New York Times.
