President Donald Trump to attend College Football Playoff game

Donald Trump will be in Atlanta on Monday night.

According to reports, the President is scheduled to attend Monday's night national championship game between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide.

According to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution:

"He is set to be hosted by Nick Ayers, a Georgia native who is Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, and his wife Jamie Ayers. First Lady Melania Trump is also expected to attend the game, which will be held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium under stepped-up security. It's not immediately certain whether two other top Trump allies in Georgia — Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and U.S. Sen. David Perdue — will join them."

This will be the first college football game that Trump has attended in person since the 2016 Army/Navy game when he was president-elect.

Tuesday morning White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders made sure to shout out the two southern schools that represent very red states at the beginning of her press briefing. She congratulated them for being, "from two great states, both in the heart of Trump country."

ESPN has announced that rapper Kendrick Lamar will be the halftime performer during the game. Lamar will be performing at a free concert at Centennial Olympic Park where his performance will be televised.

Lamar's album cover for his sophomore project "To Pimp A Butterfly" depicts the aftermath of a black revolution on the White House lawn.

Monday night's game will definitely be one you won't want to miss.
