Still, they said, "we will not let the President's visit go without a response". The NAACP is asking people to wear white and hold anti-Trump signs.

The organization also planned a "Twitter storm" beginning at 6 p.m. ET and continuing through the end of the game.

Refuse Fascism ATL has also said that they will be planning a protest ahead of Trump's arrival. "We respect those who choose to do so, and we fully expect some groups who will be protesting outside the game".

The unnamed company, who employed the nurses, charged Lee $1000 per day to receive in-home nursing care at all hours. Stan Lee is estimated to be worth around $50 million from his involvement in several Marvel comic franchises.

In the four years of the College Football Playoff, this was the first time in a national title game the teams were not on the field during the national anthem.

"We're going to make a snowflake turn into a mighty blizzard inside of Mercedes-Benz Stadium when Mr. Trump comes", Gerald Griggs, a vice-president of the Atlanta NAACP, said at a news conference Monday.

Atlanta police set up designated areas for demonstrations and had previously said they wouldn't interfere unless protesters break the law.

They plan to "take a knee against Trump" outside CNN's world headquarters shortly before Trump arrives two hours prior to kickoff. Local, state and federal law enforcement authorities said they've worked for months to develop security plans.

The NAACP said protesters should wave white towels to mock the title of "snowflake" often bestowed on Trump's critics.
