Donald Trump brags about serving McDonald's 'hamberders' at White House

President Donald Trump speaks in front of fast food provided for the 2018 College Football Playoff National Champion Clemson Tigers due to the partial government shutdown in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington on January 14, 2019.

As President Donald Trump continues to slam Democrats for the longest ever government shutdown now in its 25th day, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blamed the Democrats for Trump's serving fast food to the Clemson Tigers football team.

As such, Trump opted to order in loads of Maccies, Burger King, Wendy's and pizza for the American footballers. On another table, heat lamps kept french fries and Domino's pizzas warm. He's sticking with Big Macs.

Though he didn't disclose the tab, estimates put the bill at around $3,000.

However, that is likely to face a serious challenge both because President Trump has shown little interest in, if not antagonism to the Bank, and has upended the traditional alliances that make the agreement possible.

"Do we have no food for you?".

Trump calls them a "great team, an unbelievable team".

Customers in about 40 Latin American countries where Netflix uses USA currency will also be affected by the price increase. Netflix now has 58 million USA subscribers, and this is the first time a price hike will impact all of them at once.

"Just know we didn't have McDonalds baby", he tweeted, sharing a photo of the visit.

On Monday the Clemson Tigers took part in a White House visit to celebrate their national championship win over the Alabama Crimson Tide.

McDonald's? Burger King? Wendy's?

With the shutdown still in full swing, White House staff is at a minimum, and it appears that the food service personnel are also on furlough.

"The reason we did this was because of the shutdown - we want to make sure that everything is right". Also, had he served the players a traditional banquet, the president's critics would be complaining that he insensitively held a White House fancy feast while thousands go without paychecks during the government shutdown. What I am about to say is fact, and there is no room for debate.

Trump's mistake, and the tone of the tweet itself was quickly mocked, with many accusing the president of setting up the fast food banquet as a stunt. "They talk to those people daily on the phone... so they consider them co-workers and they said, hey, let's send them some pizza". "So I think we're going to have a little fun".
