Fans at the US Open cheered on Serena and Venus Williams, but there were no cheers for Donald Trump! The Republican presidential candidate was heavily booed at the Venus sisters’ quarterfinal match on Sept. 8. See the video here!
Donald Trump, 69, was one of the many celebrities to attend the fierce match between sisters Serena Williams, 33, and Venus Williams, 35, and the crowd seemed to have a very strong reaction to his presence — but not a positive one. The billionaire business mogul and Republican presidential contender was loudly booed inside and outside Arthur Ashe stadium!
Donald had it rough at the US Open. As he made his way into the stadium, he was immediately booed but kept a stoic presence and kept walking. It seems like Donald couldn’t catch a break later on either, because when he was shown on screen during the match, he was met with even more boos!

This is certainly not the first time the business mogul has been booed. He was shown major disapproval at the Republican Presidential Debate on Aug. 6, after he refused to pledge his support for the eventual Republican presidential nominee, unless it’s him.
The US Open was a star-studded event, as celebs came out to watch the grueling match between Serena and Venus. Serena beat her older sister two sets to one, which means she’s that much closer to making history. Celebs at the match included Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, who ironically, have both been booed before! However, it seems like Donald was the one to take the hot seat this time. Here’s how fans reacted on Twitter.
