Former President Donald Trump made an appearance at an agricultural fraternity house on Saturday before the annual Iowa-Iowa State football game between the Hawkeyes and the Cyclones where he was seen flipping burgers and throwing footballs.

Videos surfaced on X, the platform previously called Twitter, that showed the former president flipping burgers at the Alpha Gamma Rho agricultural fraternity.

Trump also signed footballs before tossing them out into the crowd at the fraternity.

According to Fox News, the Iowa Senate majority leader Jack Whitver said he was very proud to have Trump at the game. 

"Tens of thousands of Iowans will gather to tailgate and cheer on their favorite team," Whitver said in a statement. "I’m proud to have President Trump witness the greatest rivalry in college sports."

A "four more years" chant also broke out before Trump headed into the game, which kicked off at 3:30 EST.

"We’re thrilled to invite Donald J. Trump to the Iowa vs. Iowa State football game this weekend," Trump’s former acting attorney general, Matt Whitaker, said in a press release earlier this week, according to the Des Moines Register. "President Trump attended this game in 2015 and remembers the incredible passion and electricity of the fans."
