North Dakota State Was Also Served Fast Food at the White House

Trump, after shaking hands with some players, cracked that he was briefed on the proper pronunciation of the North Dakota State "Bison".

WASHINGTON | President Donald Trump is again feting football champions with burgers and fries.

"You should all be incredibly proud", he said, before giving a special shout out to the team's quarterback, Easton Stick, who was named Most Outstanding Player.

During the 2016 campaign, it was said that the four major food groups onboard Donald Trump's private plane were "McDonald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza and Diet Coke".

"Somebody better draft him, he's going to be a rich guy", Trump added.

"Go and eat up", the president instructed.

Trump in January rolled out a similar fast-food buffet to the national champion Clemson Tigers football team.

The players laughed with the president while eyeing stacks of Big Macs and Chick-fil-A sandwiches on a long table in the center of the room.

You may remember that Trump hosted Clemson in January at the White House to celebrate the Tigers' 44-16 national championship win over Alabama. The White House blamed the government shutdown's effect on the kitchen staff (while still forgoing a catered meal from a legitimate restaurant) for the unusual food choice.

Although Trump's selection of food options were ridiculed online, the president seemed happy with how things turned out. While they didn't expect there to be any food, Trump made sure the players were treated to some burgers and fries.

"For me, personally, the No. 1 thing is just the team being together", Entz said.
