Donald Trump gets two pieces of cake when he dines with people at his Florida resort Mar-a-Lago. No one else gets two. The fast-food in chief was photographed on his plane during the 2016 presidential campaign scarfing down Kentucky Fried Chicken. Here’s the thing: it is all about the president. Whatever he likes to eat, he forces on his guests. When he set out a spread for the winning Bisons, it was a junk food bonanza.
The North Dakota State University football team might have expected the elegant dining the White House has offered other sports teams. Yet, it was not to be. Trump served the winning team his favorite foods. White House correspondent for Newsday Laura Figueroa Hernandez tweeted a photo of his spread:
‘Fast food spread at the White House for North Dakota State University Football Team. Big Macs and Chick-Fil-A.’
These guys can get junk food at home, on the run between classes. If that occurred to POTUS, he must not have cared. Trump said that reason he gave the winners of the national college playoffs, Clemson University, a table filled with fast food last week was that the government was shut down. He paid for it out of his pocket.
When asked whether he liked McDonalds or Wendy’s, CNN reported that Trump commented:
‘If it’s American, I like it. It’s all American stuff. … But it’s good stuff and we have the national champion team, as you know, Clemson Tigers. And they had a fantastic game against Alabama and they’re all here. They’re right outside the room and I think we’re going to let you see them. But I’ll bet you, as much food as we have — we have pizzas, we have 300 hamburgers, many, many french fries, all of our favorite foods. I want to see what’s here when we leave, because I don’t think it’s going to be much. The reason we did this is because of the shutdown. We want to make sure that everything is right, so we sent out, we got this. And we have some wonderful people working in the White House. They helped us out with this.’
Apparently, the president liked the idea and repeated it, even though the government was open and could pay for it. Maybe White House guests should just feel lucky Trump’s favorite food is not liver and onions.
