After shutdown closes WH kitchen, Trump orders fries, burgers for football champs

President Donald Trump personally paid for an “all-American” feast of burgers, pizza and fries for a visiting college football champions as the White House chefs are among those furloughed due to the partial government shutdown, the longest in the US history.


On Monday, the Clemson Tigers were invited by Trump to the White House to celebrate their national championship win over the Alabama Crimson Tide. With the White House chefs staying home because of the shutdown, Trump used his own money to order burgers and fries from McDonald’s and the Wendy's, which he said were the “great American food.”

“We ordered American fast food. Paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza, I think they'd like it better than anything we could give,” Trump said.

Standing behind the spread of fast food, in the Dining Room of the White House, Trump said, “I like it all. It's all good stuff, great American food. And it's going to be very interesting to see at the end of this evening how many are left.”

“Because the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security, much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed so the President is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone's favourite fast foods,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.
