Fans of the College Football National Championship Game booed President Donald Trump’s limousine when it pulled up outside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
CNN reporter Andy Scholes, who tweeted a video of the incident, noted that part of the stadium had been placed on lockdown for an hour:
They locked down @MBStadium for @realDonaldTrump an hour ago and myself and a thousand fans have been waiting in the rain to get in. Let’s just say there were plenty of boos when Trump arrived pic.twitter.com/6XIr8YO5gO

CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny tweeted his reaction to the booing:
The hazards of a president injecting himself into a college football championship. Even in Trump Country, many people just wanna watch the big game. https://t.co/oa4Ujs0tFS
