President Donald Trump plans to make a visit to Ames, Iowa, this weekend for a college football game.

As the football season has just begun for many colleges in the country, the former president will make his first visit since 2015 to the University of Iowa vs. Iowa State University game on Sept. 9. 

“We’re thrilled to invite Donald J. Trump to the Iowa vs. Iowa State football game this weekend. President Trump attended this game in 2015 and remembers the incredible passion and electricity of the fans,” Trump’s former acting Attorney General and former tight end for the Iowa Hawkeyes Matt Whitaker stated in a press release. 

President Trump’s last notable appearance at a college football game was in 2020 at the College Football Playoff national championship game in New Orleans. The 45th president and First Lady Melania Trump were cheered on by thousands of football fans at the Louisiana State University and Clemson University of South Carolina game.

As fans will come to cheer on the teams this weekend, Senate Majority Leader and former Cyclones wide receiver Jack Whitver stated that he is “proud to have President Trump” attend.

“Ten-of-thousands of Iowans will gather to tailgate and cheer on their favorite team. I’m proud to have President Trump witness the greatest rivalry in college sports,” Whitver stated in a press release.

The game will be on Sept. 9, with the kickoff starting at 2:30 p.m. CT
