WASHINGTON | President Donald Trump is again feting football champions with burgers and fries. That visit occurred during the federal government shutdown when some of the White House staff had been furloughed, according to press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"I know you people", he told the players.

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

The White House, as it did after Clemson won the College Football Playoff national championship game, offered up a fast-food feast to the celebrating players, this time with food from Chick-fil-A and McDonald's.

The North Dakota State Bison football team filled the dining room to bursting with their formidable height, broad shoulders, and record-breaking statistics.

As expected, the White House's fast-food treatment sparked plenty of negative reactions on Twitter.

President Donald Trump welcomes 2018 NCAA FCS College Football Champions, The North Dakota State Bison, to the White House in Washington, Monday.

Players reportedly laughed at the president's remark, which was a clear reference to his celebration with the Clemson Tigers in January.

The grub came from Chick-fil-A, McDonald's and Domino's, and team members were lauded by the president before they dug in.

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.

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