In 2019, ahead of then-President Donald Trump’s visit to the SEC West game between Alabama and LSU, Nick said that it was “an honor” to welcome Trump.
“Well, it’s an honor, I think, that the President of the United States would be interested enough to come to the game,” he said, according to the Montgomery Advertiser. “I’m sure we’ll do everything we can to welcome him.”
Nick and his team had visited Trump in the White House once by that point, along with four trips to visit former President Barack Obama in the nation’s capital.
“We’ve been to the White House several times, and it’s always a very, very flattering, unique experience,” Nick added.
(The following year, Trump called mistakenly referred to Nick as “Lou Saban” during a phone call, according to CNN.)
