North Dakota State football team gets fast food from Donald Trump

Trump is greeting football players at the White House with fast food — again

"We like American companies", he said.

Trump served a similar spread that included hundreds of hamburgers to Clemson's players in January.

Visiting Washington D.C. on Monday, FCS Division I national champions North Dakota State met with Trump and toured the oval office as part of their celebratory visit to the nation's capital. Big Macs and Chick-Fil-A.

Trump told the North Dakota State players that he could have had the White House chef prepare food for them, but instead opted for a thematic repeat of the menu he offered Clemson during the partial government shutdown. Quarterback Easton Stick threw five touchdown passes, including two to Darrius Shepherd, who was named Most Outstanding Player with five catches and 125 yards.

Praising the player, Trump said he had "the look" of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who has a well-documented friendship with the president.

Trump made some brief comments and the Bisons presented him with a jersey that had his name and the number 45 on the back.

During his address to the team, the president nonchalantly referenced when the Clemson team visited in January.

A champion visit to the White House had been a typical occasion for most teams before President Trump's term.

Trump described the chain food, piled before them in paper boxes and wrappers, as "all American".

"For me, personally, the No. 1 thing is just the team being together", Entz said. "And I know no matter what we did, there's nothing you could have that's better than that".
