There’s nothing more American than attending the Army-Navy game, and President-elect Donald Trump is definitely the kind of guy for all things American.
The next inhabitant of the White House was one of the 71,600 people at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Saturday, where he saw the best of West Point and Annapolis face off.
The Midshipmen and Black Knights weren’t the only ones receiving cheers, however. As the president-elect’s presence was announced on the jumbotron, those in attendance began cheering wildly.
Trump, during an interview with CBS in the commentators’ box, said that he was “humbled” and joked that they were chanting his favorite four words.
When the crowd began cheering wildly at the end of his appearance, one of the announcers said that he felt like he was at a rally.
“It’s a friendly crowd,” Trump said, then joked, “They’re all screaming, ‘Make America Great Again!’ … It’s very amazing.”
While we couldn’t discern exactly what they were saying through the broadcast video, the Baltimore Sun reported that the crowd chanted “USA! USA!” to mark Trump’s appearance.
“It is humbling, it’s a great honor and it’s a great responsibility,” Trump said. “When you see these incredible people, you are humbled. You don’t see this kind of spirit anywhere. It’s just amazing.”
Fans were equally humbled.
“I think it was a morale booster for the military cadets out here and the rest of the crowd as well to see it,” said Patrick Soos, an Army supporter.
“It was a quick glimpse of him, but the crowd was able to get a glimpse of the incoming president, so you could see a sense of motivation and a sense of leadership and the crowd was behind it.”
It’s worth pointing out that much like Trump and the election in November, the clear favorite didn’t win. West Point, losers of the last 14 Army-Navy games and a six-point betting underdog to the Navy Midshipmen, pulled off a 21-17 victory. Talk about fitting.
