Presidential hopeful Donald Trump spoke highly of Nick Saban and the team at his rally in Madison on Sunday.
“I love Alabama. I do love that team. How good is that team?” said Trump in front of an estimated 10,000 attendees. “I love champions.
“I don’t know your coach. I don’t know, maybe he’s endorsing somebody else, I don’t care,” Trump continued. “You got a hell of a coach. The job he’s done here right?”
“But I love the team. I love watching them play, so professional,” Trump added, concluding his remarks on the Crimson Tide.
Next month, Saban and the Alabama football team will visit the White House for the fourth time during Obama’s presidency.
Trump’s comments on Alabama come on the heels of Marco Rubio’s joking shot at Auburn during a Birmingham rally on Saturday.
