The Clemson Tigers traveled to Washington D.C. Monday to visit the White House after winning the College Football National Championship.
Ahead of the meeting, President Donald Trump told the media that he would be serving bunch of fast food for the presidential meal.
It should be noted that Trump did pay for the entire meal out of his own pocket due to the government shut down.
“The Clemson national championship team will be coming tonight. It will be exciting. Very great team. Unbelievable team. I think we’re going to serve McDonalds, Wendys, and Burger King…some pizza. I really mean it. Their favorite food. So we’ll see what happens”

He wasn’t kidding.
The White House staff laid over fast food including 300 hamburgers from McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King – all laid out on the finest silver platers making for a hilarious scene.

White House says President Trump “is personally paying for” event with National Champions Clemson tonight “to be catered with some of everyone’s favorite fast foods,” because “much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed” due to the ongoing government shutdown. pic.twitter.com/abr5wFrc1I
