Trump fetes North Dakota State with fast food

Fast food was again on the White House menu as members of the champion North Dakota State University's football team gathered for a reception hosted by President Donald Trump to celebrate their Division I FCS national championship win.

"Chick-Fil-A, they say? Chick-Fil-A", President Trump said with a smile, addressing the crowds of footballers and sports representatives behind the grand mahogany table of the White House State Dining Room, as filmed by CNN.

The president also insisted at the time that fast food was what the players really wanted.

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".

"We like American companies, OK?" he said.

Later, Trump - who has claimed in the past to be a big fan of fast food himself - told the Clemson team that he had bought "1,000" food items, Time reported.

The boxes consisted of Big Macs from McDonald's and Chick-Fil-A food, according to pool reporter Laura Figueroa.

The Bisons on January 5 beat Eastern Washington 38-24, for a record seventh title in eight seasons in the Football Championship Subdivision.

"Somebody better draft him!"

Another college football team is visiting the White House today. North Dakota State quarterback Easton Stick made his way back from the recent NFL Combine to present President Trump with a Bisons #45 jersey.

Despite the food, championship ceremonies went on as planned at the White House.
