After declaring his exodus from the Big Apple, President Donald Trump was met with boos Saturday night from UFC fans as he entered Madison Square Garden for a mixed martial arts title fight.
Trump entered the arena with his sons Donald Jr and Eric Trump, and his longtime friend and UFC President, Dana White, and a large security detail at around 10pm.
It was Trump’s first visit to New York since announcing he was moving his permanent residence from Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.
Also in attendance with Trump was a group of Republican lawmakers, who also attended Game 5 of the World Series with Trump, where he was also booed by Washington, D.C. fans and greeted with chants of ‘Lock him up!’
Trump was received with more mixed reviews in New York, where the Queens native also received some loud cheering from fans alongside the chorus of boos when he entered The Garden.
Just before the first of five main card fights of the night, Trump stood to wave to audience members sitting close to the action. Here, many fight fans gave him cheers, as video shot by a DailyMail.com reporter traveling with the President revealed.
In other footage, someone in the crowd can be heard shouting: ‘F**k you, f**k you,’ as a section of the crowd in upper level seats could be heard booing as he walked in.
