There was a national uproar after Bama and LSU played for the 2012 BCS National Championship.

If he attends, Trump will become the first sitting president to attend the College Football Playoff title game since it's inception in 2014.

While it's true that Alabama and Georgia went for Trump in the 2016 presidential election, he's not exactly beloved in either state. The Bulldogs won a 54-48 double-overtime thriller against Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl.

President Donald Trump is expected to attend the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday night, a White House official told CNN.

According to a report in Politically Georgia, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's politics blog, on Wednesday, Trump will be at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta for the all-Southeastern Conference showdown between Alabama and Georgia.

More than 100,000 visitors are expected for the game and related events over the weekend.

Trump has railed against the National Football League and the players who have protested, calling their act an insult to the country. Atlanta's economy is growing rapidly, and while crime and poverty remain higher-than-average, the district is home to several Fortune 500 headquarters, prestigious universities and the nation's busiest airport. "We look forward to a fantastic national championship between Georgia and Alabama next week".
