The White House on Monday dished up heaping platters of fast-food burgers, chicken, fries and pizza for the North Dakota State Bisons football team in honor of their winning a record seventh Football Championship Subdivision National Championship.

President Donald Trump noted Monday that he could have offered North Dakota State chef-prepared food, but he went with the fast food instead.

The Tigers' team was served a deluxe fast food spread, including McDonald's, Wendy's and Burger King. The President also told Fox News that they like american companies. The team, expressing gratitude to Trump for hosting them, presented him with his own green and yellow Bison jersey, featuring the president's name and the number 45 on its back. Suspecting, however, that it would cause "too big a stir" to munch on a chicken sandwich with snap-happy reporters present, President Trump chose to save his own lunchtime feast for later.

President Donald Trump fielded little praise - and a great deal anger - when he shut down the federal government for 35 day at the start of the year. The press criticized Trump's choice of food, which he personally paid for, but the many players defended their trip to the White House.

Championship teams visiting the White House is a longstanding tradition, though the ritual has become complicated under the Trump administration.

North Dakota State, the FCS national champion, is in D.C.to celebrate its national championship. "They'll say, 'Isn't it frightful?" You'll never guess what was on the menu for the players to eat.
