The spotlight once again turned to the platform rather than the field. Donald Trump was warmly applauded Saturday by spectators at a college football game he attended in Tuscaloosa, Ala., In the southern United States.
The reception given to the Republican president in this very conservative region stands in stark contrast to the hostile reception he received at the end of October during a World Series baseball match in Washington, a city that votes overwhelmingly in the Democratic Republic.

Trump, currently under investigation by Democratic parliamentarians seeking his removal, was overwhelmingly greeted by a crowd of more than 100,000 on his arrival in the Bryant-Denny Stadium grandstand in Tuscaloosa.
When the US president greeted the crowd with a wave of his hand, shouts of "USA, USA" rose.

Later, during the university football match between Louisiana State University and the University of Alabama, Trump received a new ovation, and a few scattered boos, when his image appeared on the stadium's giant screens.
First Lady Melania Trump and several parliamentarians from Alabama and Louisiana accompanied the US Chief of the Executive at this sporting event, the third he attended in two weeks.
On October 28, Mr. Trump was poorly received in the federal capital during the fifth World Series meeting, the final of the baseball championship between the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros.
The crowd that was cheering on the military spectators had gone on with long and resounding boos as the video system of the stadium showed Mr. Trump on his giant screens.
Spectators chanted "Lock him up! ("Lock it up!") To the president's address.
The slogan "Lock her up! "(" Enclose it! ") Is a public classic of Donald Trump's meetings that targets Hillary Clinton, his Democratic rival in the 2016 presidential election. Opponents of Mr. Trump have returned the formula against him.
The reception was then mixed on November 3 during an MMA fight at Madison Square Garden in New York, where cheers were mixed with boos.
Donald Trump is running for a second term in the November 2020 presidential election. He is not sure that all voters will give him the same warm welcome as in Alabama.
