“That’s what Trump wanted with that walk in,” Kilmeade added. “It’s just too simple to say boos or cheers.”
The Fox & Friends hosts also invited former UFC fighter Tim Kennedy to weigh in. Kennedy responded to Kilmeade’s comments with his own account of the atmosphere at Madison Square Garden when the president arrived. “Trump definitely brings out electricity in people, both good some bad,” Kennedy said. “Far right, far left, middle, everybody gets excited when he’s there. What that response looked like, you never know, but at the fight, it was electric.”
During a press conference following the UFC event, Dana White expressed his appreciation of Trump’s attendance. “It’s amazing,” he said. “It’s like one of the big deals. It’s like we made it.”
White also added that Trump helped make the UFC what it is today by supporting the competition during its early years. “I would never say anything negative about Donald Trump because he was there when other people weren’t,” the UFC president said.
Prior to his main event fight, Jorge Masvidal also spoke about Trump’s attendance at UFC 244. “No matter what your views are on Trump as a president, the guy’s a bad motherf***er, man,” Masvidal told reporters.
