Protesters project unwelcome image onto stadium for President Trump

Drones Spotted in Sky Before College Football Title Game Despite Ban FBI

The scene was relatively quiet Monday morning outside the stadium in downtown Atlanta where the College Football Playoff title game was set to be played, with some fans milling about but no anti-Trump protesters in sight.

A few police officers looked on at the small, peaceful protest as a leader with a bullhorn led chants in the direction of fans streaming past them before game time to Mercedez-Benz Stadium, about three blocks away.

In recent months, Trump has repeatedly criticized professional football players in the NFL for kneeling during the anthem to protest racial injustice.

The organization also planned a "Twitter storm" beginning at 6 p.m. ET and continuing through the end of the game. "We respect those who choose to do so, and we fully expect some groups who will be protesting outside the game".
