President Trump is set to attend an MMA fight at Madison Square Garden this Saturday night. As The New York Post reports:
President Trump is set to take in an MMA bout Saturday night at Madison Square Garden — and stay in the city into Marathon Sunday, potentially putting Midtown traffic into a chokehold, according to a law-enforcement source.
Trump is scheduled to be in attendance when the Mecca plays host to UFC 244, headlined by a five-round tangle between welterweights Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, a New York Times reporter tweeted on Tuesday, a source told The Post.
“They’re making plans for him to sit in the seats,” said the law-enforcement insider, who advised attendees to arrive early for stringent security screenings.
Trump’s tentative Saturday night plans were first detailed in a tweet by a New York Times reporter, citing sources.
