“Ladies and gentlemen, please turn your attention to midfield for today’s coin toss and welcome President Donald J. Trump,” the announcer said as he introduced Trump, as well as the secretaries of the Army and Navy.
President Trump is the 10th sitting president to attend Army-Navy game since Theodore Roosevelt first witnessed the event in 1901. Trump also attended the event two years ago, becoming the first president-elect to do so.
