By The Blaze. . .President Donald Trump received a roaring applause from a Manhattan crowd as he entered Madison Square Garden in New York City on Saturday night to watch UFC 244. The 45th president of the United States arrived at the legendary venue at approximately 9:00 p.m. along with his family and high-ranking members of Congress.
According to the New York Post, although a small group of protestors gathered outside and some fans booed Trump as he walked into the arena, “there were twice as many fans happy to see the commander in chief.” A video posted by MMA fighter Tara LaRosa appears to confirm this, as it shows fans mostly cheering Trump as he walked in to watch the sporting event.

The Post reported that Trump traveled to New York to watch the fighter Derrick Lewis take on Blagoy Ivanov with House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and arrived at John F. Kennedy Airport shortly after 8:00 p.m. The entourage arrived at Madison Square Garden about an hour later after taking the Marine One helicopter to a heliport in lower Manhattan. The president and his entourage then went by motorcade to the arena located in midtown Manhattan. He was also accompanied by his sons, Eric and Donald Trump Jr. . .
Despite the warm reception seen on video, several media outlets are portraying the crowd’s reaction as negative. A CBS News headline reads “Trump booed at UFC event in New York City.”
Meanwhile, CNN said “Trump met with loud boos, some cheers, at UFC fight in New York.”
Fake News gonna fake. Why don’t you play the video you leftist hacks? I was there in the heart of NYC and it was overwhelmingly positive. An awesome response.
It’s nice that everyone at least sees that you’ve flat out stopped even pretending to be objective. https://t.co/uX1kKEAzOh

Fox News Poll: 49 Percent Favor Impeaching Trump
By Fox News. Nearly half of voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office, according to a new Fox News Poll. In addition, 6-in-10 believe the president did ask foreign leaders to investigate political opponents — and two-thirds say that action is inappropriate.
Forty-nine percent want Trump impeached and removed from office, 4 percent say he should be impeached but not removed, and 41 percent oppose impeaching Trump. That’s about where things stood in early October, when 51 percent said impeach/remove, 4 percent impeach/don’t remove, and 40 percent opposed altogether.
The two-point dip in support for impeachment comes from a 5-point decline among Republicans, as 8 percent favor impeachment now, compared to 13 percent in early October.
More voters believe Trump asked Ukraine to probe his rivals (60 percent) and that he held up military aid as pressure to get what he wanted (52 percent), than favor impeaching him for doing so (49 percent). (Read more from “Fox News Poll: 49 Percent Favor Impeaching Trump” HERE)
