The North Dakota State football team joined the president at the White House for a celebration Monday of their seventh national title in eight years.

It was definitely a defining - and dividing - moment for Trump, who was able to turn it into a left versus right debate on serving fast food to college champs.

"I know you people", Trump told the Bison while referring to Clemson's visit, getting laughter from more than 150 NDSU players and staff.

When asked what inspired the menu choice President Trump responded "I would think that's their favorite food". "We like American companies". The team, expressing gratitude to Trump for hosting them, presented him with his own green and yellow Bison jersey, featuring the president's name and the number 45 on its back.

At the January dinner for the Clemson University football team, Trump served McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King and pizza.

The contingent was provided a lunch of Big Mac's, french fries and Chick-Fil-A sandwiches.

The North Dakota Bison Football team are seven-time NCAA Football Championship Subdivision winners.

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

"We addressed it", Coach Matt Entz told the Grand Forks Herald, referring to politics.
