Donald Trump has once again welcomed college football champions with burgers and fries on Monday
Donald Trump has once again welcomed college football champions with burgers and fries. The President greeted the NCAAs Football Championship Subdivision champions, North Dakota State, at the White House on Monday with a lunch that included Big Macs, french fries and Chick-fil-A sandwiches.
In January Trump served a similar spread that included hundreds of hamburgers to the Clemson Tigers after they won the College Football Playoff, citing the government shutdown that was underway at the time. North Dakota play in the level below the Tigers.
Trump said he could have offered North Dakota more traditional food, but, I know you people before adding we like American companies.
After Clemsons visit it emerged that nearly three-quarters of the teams black players declined to visit the White House. Three African American members of the Tigers said Trumps racism and divisive politics led them to stay away from the ceremony.
North Dakota were expected to send a more united team to the White House. The teams coach, Matt Entz, said the Bison had addressed political issues before the trip. This isnt a political trip, this is a Bison trip, Entz told the Grand Forks Herald. Personally, I sold it as two things: its one more opportunity for the 2018 team to be together, but also in my mind the start of the 2019 season and the things were going to do together.
