President Donald Trump said he is looking into offering a waiver that would allow athletes attending the nation's military academies to play professional sports immediately upon graduation to make recruiting easier for the academies.

Trump made the announcement Monday while presenting the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy to the U.S. Military Academy football team during a Rose Garden ceremony. The Army Black Knights completed an 11-2 season, including wins over the Air Force and Navy. Army earned the trophy for the second consecutive year.
