    On Monday US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump attended the start of the College Football Playoff National Championship in New Orleans at a game between Louisiana State University and Clemson, to a roaring greeting from the crowds.

    US President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump were greeted by fans at the game between Louisiana State University and Clemson University of South Carolina in the Superdome on Monday night as they attended the 2020 College Football Playoff national championship game in New Orleans.

    “It’ll be a great game. It’ll be something that a lot of people want to see,” said Trump, leaving the White House.

    The president, 73, and the First Lady, 49, walked onto the field for the singing of the National Anthem and were cheered by both teams.

    Just as they took up their positions, Donald Trump placed his hand around his wife’s, only to have her jerk it away "forcefully" in an incident that fans swooped in on at once. Many referred to it as yet another incident of what’s been dubbed “HandGate.”

    ​Others online tended to think it was the other way around, and it was Donald Trump who had been pulling away.

    ​The sometimes awkward body language noticed between US President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania Trump, has often been a talking point on social media.

    FLOTUS has seemingly repeatedly refused to hold her husband’s hand in public.

    ​While at times she offers a brief hand hold, before letting go, or is believed to employ tactics like a hair sweep to avoid the encounter, on other occasions the First Lady was spied swatting his hand away like on the couple’s state trip to Tel Aviv in 2017.

    ​The incidents have, needless to say, often gone viral.
