President Donald Trump welcomed the University of Alabama’s national championship football team to the White House Tuesday with a ceremony on the South Lawn.

Coach Nick Saban and the team presented President Trump with an Alabama jersey, helmet and a game ball from the College Football Playoff National Championship Game during the ceremony. The visit also included a tour of the White House, including the East Room, State Dining Room, Red Room, Blue Room and Green Room.

The trip to the White House was the Crimson Tide’s fifth since the spring of 2010. This visit recognized the Tide’s 26-23 come-from-behind overtime victory over Georgia in the 2018 CFP National Championship Game in Atlanta. It was Alabama’s 17th claimed national championship and the fifth under Nick Saban.
