45th President Donald Trump just arrived in Las Vegas, Nevada at the T-Mobile Arena to attend UFC 264 to see the fight of his longtime fan, Conor McGregor, who once called President Trump “incredible” and the “greatest of all time.”
President Trump was greeted by cheers as he entered the event, along with a smattering of boos. Even those who oppose President Trump in the crowd were forced to admit that at least half of those in attendance were excited to see the 45th President attend.

I want to say that I can’t believe that it was a 50-50 crowd for Trump but I’d be lying because I know where I’m at and who I’m surrounded by at UFC 264.
