Trump celebrates North Dakota State football champs with fast food

Donald Trump

The South Carolina team visited the White House during the partial government shutdown, and the president served the team members Burger King and McDonald's.

Back in January, President Donald Trump served the national champion Clemson Tigers football team an array of lukewarm fast food.

The players laughed with the president while eyeing stacks of Big Macs and Chick-fil-A sandwiches on a long table in the center of the room. Another table was laden with fries.

U.S. President Donald Trump welcomes athletes to the White House.

Despite that lifestyle, Trump, 72, passed his annual medical exam in February with flying colors and was declared to be "in very good health".

"I know you people", Trump said to laughter, noting the Clemson precedent and adding, "We like American companies".

He certainly wasn't apologizing for his latest culinary offering.

North Dakota State closed out the 2018 season with a 15-0 record.

He joked how he'd like to "have one right up here" at the podium but pointed to the assembled White House journalists and complained "they'll say: Isn't it disgusting, isn't it inappropriate?"

On Saturday, Head Coach Matt Entz of the NDSU Bison told the Grand Forks Herald that the visit was an important morale booster.

"We sold it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that we're taking", Entz said before the trip.

The president remarked that the quarterback would be a valuable asset to an National Football League team, and even compared him to New England Patriots legendary quarterback Tom Brady.
