Donald Trump Set To Attend Clemson Vs. South Carolina Football Game


Former President Donald Trump has set his sights on a college football game this weekend, choosing to attend the South Carolina vs. Clemson matchup on Saturday. According to multiple reports, Trump will be present for kickoff at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia, S.C.

Key Takeaway

Former President Donald Trump will be attending the South Carolina vs. Clemson football game, showcasing his ties to both programs. This marks his second sporting event appearance this month, following the UFC 295 event he attended.

Strong Ties to Both Programs

While it remains unclear why Trump opted for the Palmetto Bowl over the highly anticipated Ohio State vs. Michigan game, there is no denying his connection to both programs. South Carolina, in particular, has shown support for the former president, voting for him in both the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections. Clemson, on the other hand, visited the White House twice during Trump’s presidency to celebrate their national championship victories in 2016 and 2018.

A Memorable White House Visit

One of Clemson’s trips to the White House during Trump’s tenure garnered significant attention when the president served the team a spread of fast food. While this unconventional choice caused a stir, Clemson’s quarterback at the time, Trevor Lawrence, expressed his enthusiasm for the meal.

A Second Sporting Event Appearance

This will be Trump’s second appearance at a sporting event this month. Earlier, he attended UFC 295 in New York, where he found himself the recipient of a middle finger gesture from Bill Burr’s wife. However, it is expected that Trump will receive a much warmer reception at the South Carolina game.
