Given the negative coverage the President routinely receives from the media, the crowd's reaction certainly showed a different narrative around Trump's popularity with the average American.
The President and the First Lady appeared to enjoy Christian artist Lauren Daigle's rendition of the national anthem. Daigle has been winning fans across the spectrum with her soulful style and booming voice, and tonight she did it again with a magnificent performance of the Star-Spangled Banner, as President Trump and the First Lady looked on.
Reaction on Twitter was extremely positive to the rousing performance. Chip Gaines was among those who praised the “You Say” singer.

Daigle received huge applause from the crowd for a really spectacular performance, which had to be fun for her given Louisiana is her home state and she attended LSU.
Faithwire has covered Clemson at length over the past year, as coach Dabo Swinney and QB Trevor Lawrence have been very open about their faith in Jesus Christ.
