Trump took the field with Defense Secretary Mark Esper for the singing of the national anthem and then participated in the coin toss, sporting a red "Keep America Great" hat.
Before the game, the president visited both locker rooms, where he shook hands with players and announced an executive order that would allow athletes at the military academies to go directly to NFL after they graduate and delay their service.
