Will Donald Trump Serve Wendy’s, McDonald’s, and Burger King to the Super Bowl Winners, the Kansas City Chiefs?
Love it or hate it, fast food is an American tradition and custom. When Clemson won the national championship in football, that’s exactly what they were served at the White House and it has some football fans wondering — will President Donald Trump serve Wendy’s, McDonald’s, and Burger King to the Super Bowl winners, the Kansas City Chiefs?
Here’s what we know about this football team and their impending trip to the White House.
President Donald Trump served fast food to the Clemson football team in 2018
It was a meal of champions, to say to least. When the Clemson football team arrived at the White House to celebrate their 2018 victory, they were greeted by piles of Wendy’s, McDonald’s, and Burger King. White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, said Trump was “personally paying for the event to be catered.”
“I think we are going to serve McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King’s with some pizza. I really mean it,” Trump had said earlier in the day. “It will be interesting. I would think that’s their favorite food. So we’ll see what happens.”
This wasn’t entirely a choice made by President Trump. The team visited the White House during the partial government shutdown, meaning that most of the staff that handed catering were “on furlough.”
“We have Big Macs, we have Quarter Pounders with cheese. We have everything that I like, that you like,” Trump continued, according to an article from The Washington Post. “And I know no matter what we did, there’s nothing you could have that’s better than that, right?”
Will the Kansas City Chiefs pay a visit to the White House?
As the winners of the most recent Super Bowl Championship, some football fans are wondering whether or not the Kansas City Chiefs got the invitation to the White House. Despite a tweet with an error from President Trump, the team has been invited and is expected to give a reply within the coming weeks.
“By the way, your Super Bowl champions are coming, I think next week,” Trump said, according to Chiefs Wire. “Soon. Very soon. And every one of them wants to be here. And the coach loves us. The coach is great. Andy Reid.”
Andy Reid responded to the invitation at the postgame press conference, saying, “I mean, I’ll be there. I’ll be there. If they’re inviting us, I’ll be there. It’s quite an honor, I think.”
Presumably, President Trump would not serve fast food to the 2020 Super Bowl winners
President Donald Trump served fast food as a result of the partial government shutdown. It’s pretty safe to say he wouldn’t repeat this with the Kansas City Chiefs if they were to make an appearance.
However, President Trump has since canceled some teams’ visit to the White House, in lieu of controversy and comments from players. That includes the 2018 Super Bowl winners, the Philadelphia Eagles. The 2017 NBA championship winners, the Golden State Warriors, declined their invitation from the President.
The Kansas City Chiefs have yet to make an official statement regarding if, or when, they will visit the White House.
