President Trump Serves Fast Food to College Football Champions Clemson Tigers

Clemson, led by head coach Dabo Swinney, won their second national championship in three seasons on Jan. 7 by blowing out the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide 44-16 in Santa Clara, Calif. With the win, Clemson completed the first 15-0 colege football season since the 1897 Penn Quakers.

What do you feed a pack of college champion Clemson Tigers? President Trump opted for Big Macs, Quarter Pounders and other fast-food favorites. ‘We have everything that I like, that you like,’ he told players to laughter. ‘And I know no matter what we did, there’s nothing that you could have that’s better than that.’

Trump paid for the fast-food feast himself rather than postpone the event because White House caterers aren’t at work during a partial government shutdown.

‘We ordered American fast food. Paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza, I think they’d like it better than anything we could give,’ Trump told reporters as he arrived at the White House.

‘We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we’re gonna have a little fun.’


The players seem to enjoy the food. One player loudly says that the food is “awesome.”
