Former President Donald Trump received a harsh welcome from some college football fans attending the Iowa vs. Iowa State game on Saturday. As he waved to a crowd from a private suite, several fans flipped him the middle finger, expressing their disapproval.
Earlier in the day, Trump visited a fraternity house and was met with a warm reception, with crowds cheering him on. However, the atmosphere shifted during the football game, where he and other GOP presidential candidates were present to witness the intense college football rivalry in the state.
Footage from the game, shared by Trump campaign staffer Margo Martin, showed a mix of boos and cheers from fans as the former president made his way through the stadium.

Progressive commentator Brian Tyler Cohen later shared photos that showed members of the crowd "flipping off Trump as he waved from behind glass."
Social media users also highlighted an altered video, shared by a pro-Trump account, that appeared to remove the boos from a video of the crowd, as reported by Mediaite.
Many have criticized Trump and his supporters as a result.
Despite facing numerous state and federal charges for attempting to overturn the 2020 election result, Trump remains the favorite to win the GOP nomination.
Trump continues to maintain his position as the GOP front-runner, leading Florida Republican Ron DeSantis by a significant margin of more than 39 percentage points in an average of national polls for the GOP primary, according to FiveThirtyEight.
The heightened level of scrutiny Trump faces does not appear to have made much of a dent in his support from the most die-hard MAGA adherents.
77 percent of his supporters believe the indictments against him are "politically motivated," according to a recent CBS News poll that also found that among likely GOP voters, Trump enjoys a majority—62 percent—of their support.
