President Trump received a very warm welcome as he arrived at the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon. 

The Commander-in-chief took time out from the impending House impeachment vote to enjoy the annual college football game at Lincoln Financial Field. 

Trump was in very high spirits as he met with players in the locker room ahead of the game, before he took to the field to partake in the coin toss.  

The President, who touts himself as a great defender of the US military, has attended two other Army-Navy football games in recent years. 

And his vocal support for the armed forces appears to have paid dividends, as he was met with rousing cheers from 70,000 spectators in the stands. 

The warm welcome was a stark contrast to the jeers he received when he turned out to watch a World Series baseball game in Washington, DC last month. 

Trump was joined the Army-Navy game with Defense Secretary Mark Esper, and the pair appeared somber as they placed their hands across their hearts during the playing of Star Spangled  Banner. 

However, after, Trump couldn't help but indulge in some subtle re-election campaigning, donning his trademark red baseball cap emblazoned with his 2020 slogan 'Keep America Great'.
