President Donald Trump was greeted with loud cheers and chants of "USA! USA!" at Saturday's Army-Navy game held at West Point.

Despite the smaller venue and the coronavirus-limited crowd, the roar among the 9,000 students of both military schools was loud and boisterous. The game was moved from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia because of coronavirus, but the acoustics of West Point made for a powerful salute.

Marine One was grounded by the weather, so Trump came by motorcade. He was greeted with cheers and chants of USA! USA! as he made his way onto the field for the national anthem and coin toss.

The Blue Angels jets and Apache helicopters could be heard but hardly seen as they flew overhead because of the thick cover of mist.

He stood with the fans in the stands for the opening kickoff. He first took his place with cadets on the Army side of the stadium for much of the first quarter before joining Navy midshipmen in the second quarter.

Trump wore a face mask at times while with both groups and was accompanied by acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller before departing just before halftime.
