A reporter covering the event shared a photo of large platters of sandwiches and fries sitting atop a long table inside the State Dining Room as the Bison players and coaches stood around waiting for Trump’s arrival.

Trump later told the players he could have offered them food prepared by the White House chef, but that “I know you people.” Players laughed at the remark.
Trump served a fast-food dinner to the Football Bowl Subdivision champion Clemson University Tigers on Jan. 14. The White House cited the government shutdown for the decision, which raised eyebrows on social media.
But with the government fully operating, the White House decided once again to forgo the traditional buffet spread for a fast-food meal.
Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence raved about the visit, telling TMZ Sports at the time that "it was awesome. We had McDonald’s and everything. It was good.”
