Trump celebrates North Dakota football champs with fast food

05 March 2019

The original plan for the visit didn't include fast food, or any food for that matter.

They're the latest championship team to visit Trump at the White House for a fast-food chow-down.

On Monday Trump served up Chick-fil-A and McDonald's to, ironically, the North Dakota State University football team, known as the Bison, as The Hill reported.

"When you play with passion and love ... and relentlessly reach for excellence, nothing is impossible", President Trump said.

The North Dakota State University Bison football team were recognized for winning the NCAA FCS championship in 2018.

The football champs will meet with President Trump at the White House at 11:30 Eastern time, or 10:30 Central time.

The offseason rumor mill started nearly immediately when Arizona hired Kliff Kingsbury as head coach. A team who a year ago traded ahead of the Dolphins to draft quarterback Josh Rosen .

Trump served a similar spread that included hundreds of hamburgers to the college football champion Clemson Tigers in January, citing the government shutdown that was underway.

"Because the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security, much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed - so the President is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone's favorite fast foods", Sanders said in a statement at the time.

Chick-fil-A has been added to the menu.

It wasn't immediately clear whether Monday's dining selection would earn the president a similar McRibbing.
