Tonight the college football playoff concludes with an all-SEC championship game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, featuring the No.3 Georgia Bulldogs and the No.4 Alabama Crimson Tide.
While Trump sat inside the Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta along tens of thousands to watch Alabama crush Georgia, members of different groups showed up in the cold rain to protest the president.
While other groups will be outside the stadium protesting, the NAACP Atlanta chapter will not, emphasizing they only participate in non-confrontational protests.
He said that Trump "stood stoic at midfield, hand over heart, mouthing words".

Another group, Refuse Fascism ATL, says that before kickoff, they'll "take a knee against Trump" outside CNN's world headquarters, in solidarity with athletes who have knelt during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.
The act, to protest systemic racism and police brutality, was condemned by Trump, who said the National Football League should suspend the player.

Trump arrived in metro Atlanta around 6 p.m.to take in the all-Southeastern Conference matchup between the two powerhouses. Rapper Kendrick Lamar, who has been a critic of the president, was set to perform during the break.
