The former President Donald Trump attended UFC 299 in Miami, Florida on Saturday night with his daughter Ivanka and with the NFL stars Joe Burrow and Nick Bosa.

Trump Attends UFC Event

The New York Post reported that Trump entered the Kaseya Center alongside UFC President Dana White to a resounding round of applause as Kid Rock’s “American Badass” played in the arena. Trump then shook hands with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy and former ESPN host Sage Steele before waving to the crowd.

Trump sat with his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner as they watched the bout between Sean O’Malley and Marlon Vera. Video posted to social media showed the NFL stars Burrow and Bosa chatting with Trump at the event.

Trump Rips Into Biden

This came hours after Trump held a campaign event in Rome, Georgia in which he ripped into President Joe Biden for the name of the murdered Georgia nursing student Laken Riley during last Thursday’s State of the Union address.

“He got Laken’s name wrong. Lincoln. Mixing her up with the football coach,” Trump said, referring to the USC football coach Lincoln Michael Riley.

“We share your grief,” Trump said of Riley’s loved ones, adding that she is “home with God in Heaven.”

Riley was allegedly murdered by an illegal alien last month while out for a jog on her college campus.

“Lincoln — Lincoln Riley, an innocent young woman who was killed by an illegal,” Biden said during his State of the Union address, botching not only Riley’s name, but also using a term for illegal immigrants that is considered politically incorrect by most Democrats.

“I don’t think he’s a good person, I don’t think he’s a nice guy, I think he’s a corrupt individual,” Trump said Biden during his speech. “It has nothing to do with age. It’s not an age thing, it’s a competence thing, they’ve got to stop.”

Trump Loves UFC Events

Trump has long enjoyed attending UFC events, as the UFC President Dana White has long been an unapologetic supporter of him.

“I posted a video of Trump on my personal social media,” White said back in November, according to Daily Mail. “One of our big sponsors called and said, ‘Take that down.’ You know what I said? ‘Go f*** yourself.”

“You vote for whoever you want to vote for, and I’ll vote for whoever I want to vote for. That’s how this works,” he continued. “I don’t even care who you’re voting for, it’s none of my f***ing business. F*** you. Don’t ever f***ing call me and tell me who to vote for.”

“I’m at a point now in my life and my career where I want to be with people that I’m aligned with,” White added. “It’s not just about the money; it is about the money, because it’s a sponsorship deal, but it’s not just [about the money]. I’m not going to take a bigger offer if it’s not something that I am aligned with and I don’t 100 percent believe in.”

Saturday night marked the first time that Trump and Ivanka were seen together publicly since January, when they were spotted at Melania Trump’s mother’s funeral in Palm Beach. Before that, it had been quite a long time since they were seen together, as Ivanka appeared to be trying to distance herself from her father. She has had no involvement in his reelection campaign at the time of this writing.
