President Trump's visit to national championship game brings tighter security

"We're going to make a snowflake turn into a mighty blizzard inside of Mercedes-Benz Stadium when Mr. Trump comes", Gerald Griggs, a vice president of the Atlanta branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said at a news conference earlier Monday.

The small crowd gathered on a downtown sidewalk chanting that black lives matter, women's lives matter and immigrants' lives matter.

"The Atlanta NAACP will not be officially participating in a protest outside at the game".

Refuse Fascism ATL has also said that they will be planning a protest ahead of Trump's arrival.

After he unveils proposals to assist rural economies, the president will attend the Alabama-Georgia game in Atlanta Monday night.

The Mercedes-Benz will be enforcing the clear bag policy.

The organization also planned a "Twitter storm" beginning at 6 p.m. and continuing through the end of the game.

Mr Trump has heavily criticised National Football League players who have protested during the national anthem with the "Take a Knee" campaign over the previous year regarding racial inequality and the mistreatment of black people by law enforcement.

The NAACP is urging people to wear white and hold anti-Trump signs on Monday for President Donald Trump's visit to Atlanta.

The term snowflake is often used by Trump supporters as an insult to those who criticize the president.

Atlanta police have said they will set up several designated areas for protesters and won't interfere with demonstrations unless protesters break the law. His decision led to changes in security and travel plans. "We respect those who choose to (physically protest), and we fully expect some groups who will be protesting outside the game". It is not uncommon for the president to attend the Army-Navy contest, but Trump is the first sitting president to attend a college football championship game during the BCS or College Football Playoff era per SB Nation.
