Trump once again caters football champ’s with fast food

Trump on Monday once again welcomed a college football champion with a spread of fast food,serving the FCS champion North Dakota State University Bison chicken sandwiches from Chick-fil-A and Big Macs from McDonald’s instead fancy meal prepared by White House chefs. The lunch was reminiscent of the pizza, burgers and fries feast he offered to the FBS champion Clemson Tigers, who visited the White House in January.

The Bison reportedly approached the trip as a team bonding experience.

“We addressed [politics],” Coach Matt Entz told the Grand Forks Herald. “This isn’t a political trip, this is a Bison trip and, personally, I sold it as two things: It’s one more opportunity for the 2018 team to be together, but also in my mind the start of the 2019 season and the things we’re going to do together.”



Trump Serves College Athletes A Whole Fast Food Spread Again

Watch:

President Trump told the team that he could have had the White House chef whip up something nice for the players but second-guessed it.

“I know you people,” he said to laughter from the team.

And, he noted, the occasion offered him a chance to advance his America First agenda.

“We like American companies,” he said.

Before the meal, the Bison team awarded the president with an honorary jersey with his name and the number “45” on the back.

As expected, the White House’s fast-food treatment sparked plenty of negative reactions on Twitter.

For the record, the team wasn’t even expecting any food, so this was a surprise.

During the Tigers’ visit, Trump cited the government shutdown as the reason for the fast-food spread, but with the government up and running, it seems this time the meal was just what was on the menu.

Congrats to North Dakota State on their 2018 national championship.
