President Donald Trump on Saturday joined the crowd taking in the Army-Navy football game at West Point’s Michie Stadium.
Trump flew to New York from Washington, arriving on the field just before 3 p.m. to cheers and chants of “USA.”
Trump walked onto the field with acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley.
A prayer was followed by the presentation of colors, the national anthem, and a cannon salute.
Trump moved to centerfield for the coin toss. It wasn’t clear if he made comments there because he wasn’t mic’d up. The president then climbed to sit in the Army section at about the 40-yard line. He later moved to the Navy section.
Trump departed the stadium shortly before halftime to head back to the White House.
