- President Donald Trump once again served a fast-food feast to a visiting championship football team as he hosted the North Dakota State Bison at the White House on Monday.
- Trump had previously served a similar meal to the Clemson Tigers after their win over the Alabama Crimson Tide in the College Football Playoff.
- The banquet of McDonald’s and Chick-fil-A comes at a particularly stressful time for the Trump White House.
President Donald Trump has done it again.
With the North Dakota State Bison football team at the White House on Monday to celebrate their seventh Football Championship Subdivision title of the past eight years, Trump decided once again to serve a fast-food feast to the visiting champions.

Trump made headlines in January when he served a spread of McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, and Domino’s to the Clemson Tigers to celebrate their national-championship win over the Alabama Crimson Tide.
The Tigers’ meal was notably devoid of Chick-fil-A,a favourite of Clemson’s star quarterback, Trevor Lawrence. In his second hosting effort, Trump appears to have corrected his mistake, reportedly making McDonald’s and Chick-fil-A the centerpieces of the meal.

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 appears this time the meal was just what was on the menu.
Congratulations to North Dakota State on their 2018 national championship.
