Prior to the college football National Championship game on Monday night, President Donald Trump took to the field during the playing of the national anthem. As many in the crowd booed the president, critics on Twitter were quick to speak out in mockery.

Trump on national title game

It's no secret that Donald Trump is a controversial figure. Even before he announced his campaign to run for president back in June 2015, Trump had been a high-profiled name in the world of real estate and reality TV. After the former host of "The Apprentice" decided to take the next step into the world of politics, Trump's brand quickly became divisive due to his questionable policy proposals and reckless behavior on social media.

Outside of Washington, Trump has made it an on again, off again routine to get into a war of words with celebrities. From Arnold Schwarzenegger to Alec Baldwin, Trump has taken his shots. Just a few months ago, however, Trump decided to become critical of the world of sports, doing so by attacking NBA star Stephen Curry on Twitter, while calling out NFL players who protest during the national anthem. While that might be the case, the president was on the field prior to the college football National Championship game, but didn't get a great response, as reported by CBS News on January 8.

As millions around the were waiting to watch the University of Alabama take on the University of Georgia in an all-SEC title game, Donald Trump made his way onto the field.

As the announcement was made of his attendance, many in the crowd jeered as the commander in chief waved his hands into the air. Trump stayed on the field during the playing of the national anthem, delivered by the Zac Brown Band, as part of one of his talking points of respecting the anthem in opposition to those who protest.

Twitter reacts

As expected, critics of the president made sure to give their thoughts, with some quick to poke fun at Donald Trump over the negative reaction.

"THAT MOMENT when the Zac Brown Band received more applause than @realDonaldTrump ......but those BOO's tho......" one tweet read.

"Had to open the door and hear where all those 'boo's' were coming from," yet another tweet added. "How loud is the booing?" another Twitter user wondered. "Crowd boo's @realDonaldTrump at the national football championship in Atlanta, Georgia," yet another tweet pointed out.

"Wow. The boos were deafening!" a follow-up tweet stated. "And there was much booing!" an additional tweet stated.
