"It is an honor and a privilege to have the Commander-in-Chief attend the Army-Navy game", Vice Admiral Walter E. Carter Jr., the U.S. Naval Academy superintendent, said Wednesday morning in a statement, according to the Washington Post. That tradition began with Theodore Roosevelt in 1901. It's custom for the president to sit on the Army's side of the stadium for one half and the Navy's side for the other.

Mr. Trump will be on the field Saturday to officiate the coin toss during the game, West Point announced Thursday.
