  • NAACP to protest Trump at national championship

Inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Trump had found his safest possible space ― an event at which he knew that he, and only he, would have the platform to use the national anthem as a political prop.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily News.

ESPN told The Associated Pressthat it has attempted to set up an interview with Trump during Monday's game but is not hopeful that he will agree to be interviewed. He will travel to Nashville, Tennessee, for the remarks.

Making its debut through the event this week, the company has brought forward a brand-new concept laptop called Project Linda . Other than that, it also carries 3.5mm audio jack, USB-A port, USB-C charging port, 720p webcam, and dual-array microphone.

In a statement, the city's NAACP branch said they expect hundreds of protestors to hold anti-Trump signs while wearing to wear white as a mocking reference to the nickname "snowflake", which they said is a "nickname Trump supporters throw at their opponents". When he arrived nearly an hour later - presumably passing a small group of protesters outside CNN headquarters - there were resounding boos.

When President Trump visits Atlanta Monday night to attend college football's national championship game, he may not remember just a year ago he described the city as "in awful shape", "falling apart" and "crime infested".

The Rev. Jesse Jackson says the halftime song at the College Football Championship game should be "We Shall Overcome". College football country is Trump country, and the presence of Southeastern Conference teams from Alabama and Georgia ― states that both went resoundingly for him ― made it a safe bet he'd face little jeering from fans.

Gas prices steady, poised for seasonal decline
West Texas Intermediate crude settled at a four-year high above $62 a barrel last week as global supply levels tightened. AAA Northeast said gas prices are up two cents in Rhode Island and up five cents in MA .

But the president's eldest son Donald Trump Jr. denied there had been any jeering.

Jackson says the big game's real meaning is that blacks can win on the playing field, but still face racial barriers after they take off their uniforms. But that wasn't the only message they wanted to pass on to the president as "F*** Trump" and "Medicare for all" also made an appearance.

President Donald Trump got his own national anthem moment Monday when he took the field before Alabama and Georgia faced off in the College Football Playoff National Championship.
