President Donald Trump appeared with a group of college football players on Monday to celebrate their victory this season. The North Dakota State Bison won the FCS National Championship this year in what has become a dynasty — they’ve racked up seven FCS titles.
And like the FBS National Champion Clemson Tigers, Trump decided to put together a fast food spread for the Bison. On the menu was Chick-Fil-A and McDonald’s and the team posed for a photo in front of the fast food buffet.

When Trump invited the Clemson team to the White House for their fast food dinner, the president made it known that he was personally paying for the dinner. Of course, that dinner came during the government shutdown when some non-essential federal employees were furloughed.
In a brief speech, Trump said, “We had the Clemson Tigers here and I did the same thing — we could have had chefs but we’ve got fast food, because we know what, I know you people very well.”
But it wasn’t all fun chatting about football and burgers. At one point, Trump was asked by a reporter if he would cooperate with Congress, which is investigating over 80 people connected to the president.
Trump responded, “I cooperate all the time with everybody. And you know the beautiful thing — no collusion, it’s all a hoax.” He told the team, “You’re gonna learn about that as you get older,” garnering laughs from the football players.

The new requests from the House are the first stage in what could be a very long probe into the president. The requests were made by the House Judiciary Committee, which would be the first group to bring any impeachment charges against President Trump if the investigation ever reached that point. Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), who leads the committee, announced his request on Sunday during an interview with ABC.
