According to USA Today President Trump and Melania will be at the Georgia/Alabama National Championship game which is held at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

According to USA Today:

The president and First Lady Melania Trump are expected to be guests of Nick and Jamie Ayers. Nick Ayers is chief of staff for Vice President Mike Pence and a native of Georgia.

Trump – who last year said any NFL player who kneeled during the national anthem should be fired, sparking a lengthy controversy around the league – also will welcome the World Series champion Houston Astros to the White House on a future date.

During the presidential election, Trump carried both Alabama and Georgia. Last month, Alabama voted Doug Jones into the U.S. Senate, eschewing Trump’s endorsement of Ray Moore.

Alabama dismantled defending champion Clemson in the Sugar Bowl and Georgia beat Oklahoma in double overtime in the Rose Bowl to qualify for the championship game.
