President Trump attends the U.S. Women’s Open. This made him the first sitting U.S. President in history to attend the event.
When President Trump stepped away from his motorcade he started waving to fans. The fans waved back enthusiastically and were screaming, “We love you, Mr. President!”
Take a look at some of the photos from the event.
Trump got to the course at 3:40 p.m. Friday, fresh off a trip to Paris for Bastille Day ceremonies.
After Air Force One landed at Newark Liberty International Airport, the president’s motorcade headed for Bedminster and drove through the heart of Trump National, past a crowd of fans near the putting green and the clubhouse. Trump could be seen waving out the window as the motorcade rolled by, then headed for his home on the property, which sits adjacent to the 15th hole.
Less than two hours later, Trump made the short trek to the skybox that’s been built behind the 16th tee, receiving cheers and applause along the way. He occasionally wandered toward the box’s windows to point and wave to fans, while the Secret Service and USGA officials handled crowd control outside the box.
USGA officials repeatedly asked the crowd to keep quiet in order to avoid disrupting play, which was taking place just yards away.
The crowd went wild while President Trump smiled and waved. In order to keep the crowd under control, the Secret Service had to keep quieting them down.
