Trump booed at UFC fight in New York

 

President Donald Trump was met with loud, sustained boos as he entered
Madison Square Garden for the Ultimate Fighting Championship on
Saturday night in New York.
The President, who is facing down an impeachment inquiry led by House
Democrats, attended with House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy, North
Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows, New York Rep. Peter King, and his two sons
Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.
A handful of signs reading “Remove Trump” and “Impeach Trump” dotted the crowd.
In a Sunday morning tweet, the President didn’t address any negative
reception he received the night before, instead writing that walking
into the venue “was a little bit like walking into a Trump Rally.
Plenty of MAGA & KAG present. Great energy.”
Trump received a similarly polarized greeting days earlier when he
attended a World Series baseball game in Washington, DC. He was met
with loud boos, cheers and ‘lock him up’ chants when he was displayed
on Nationals Park’s video screen.
The negative reception wasn’t particularly surprising in predominantly
liberal Washington, but it came on the same day Trump announced the US
killed ISIS founder Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the world’s most wanted
terrorist.
This is Trump’s first trip to his home state after asserting that his
Florida resort is now the President’s “predominant and principal
home.”
Since taking office, he has spent 99 days at his Mar-a-Lago club
compared to only 20 days spent at Trump Tower in New York City,
according to CNN’s count. That makes his time spent in Florida five
times more than his time spent in New York.
Outside the venue, protesters both against and in support of Trump
gathered and chanted.
