White House Fast Food - A Reflection Of Trump’s Blue-Collar Billionaire Persona

White House Fast Food - A Reflection Of Trump’s Blue-Collar Billionaire Persona

The Clemson Tigers celebrated their national championship at the White House on Monday and were served a meal that consisted of cold fast food on silver platters.

The image of a spread of food from McDonald's, Wendy's and Domino's Pizza in an ornate room in the White House was jarring for some social media users. "Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamberders etc", he said in a tweet that has since been deleted.

Trump told the football players that most of his kitchen staff wasn't working because of the partial government shutdown but that he still wanted to feed them when they visited the White House.

The co-owner of one of Chicago's top-rated restaurants invited the National Champion Clemson football team to dinner after their recent trip to the White House.

Nearing the end of his comments at the White House, Trump said, "To all of the fantastic athletes here today, that wiped more food than any human being has ever seen before, including me - I've never seen so much - thank you for inspiring America". "Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza", Trump said.

"We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we're gonna have a little fun". The president announced he was celebrating the Tigers' second title in three seasons a bit differently, a fast food party.

He announced: "If it's American [food], I like it".

Separately, Sens. Lindsey Graham of SC and Chris Coons of DE were organising a bipartisan letter asking Trump to reconsider his rejection of the idea of reopening the government for three weeks to allow time for negotiations on border security. "I really mean it", Trump had said earlier in the day. "We have to have it".

Seven Democratic lawmakers went to the White House on Wednesday to ask Trump to agree to re-open the government while talks continue over his push for border money, a request the president has heard before and rejected.

Trump has demanded that Democrats, newly empowered in the House of Representatives, designate $5.7bn to build a wall along the southern border as part of legislation to fund the government.

Much of the Executive Residence staff, who are ordinarily responsible for catering such receptions, are either furloughed or at home because of the federal government snow closure.

Another was Rep. John Katko (R-N.Y.), who previously voted alongside House Democrats on bills to reopen the government.
