It's another historic day for the NDSU Bison Football team, after having the privilege of visiting the White House where they met and spoke with President Donald Trump.

"We sold it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that we're taking", Entz said before the trip.

"We could've had chefs, we could have, but we had fast food - because I know you people", President Donald Trump said to laughter. Trump called them a tremendously talented team.

In January, Trump welcomed another champion U.S. college team, the Clemson Tigers, with what he called an "all American" feast of burgers and pizzas.

The White House, as it did after Clemson won the College Football Playoff national championship game, offered up a fast-food feast to the celebrating players, this time with food from Chick-fil-A and McDonald's.

United Kingdom government minister quits over Brexit
May has repeatedly ruled this out, saying it would undermine faith in democracy among the 17.4 million who voted in 2016 to leave. Leaving the European Union would represent an historic change and it is natural that some people will feel apprehensive.

It was definitely a defining - and dividing - moment for Trump, who was able to turn it into a left versus right debate on serving fast food to college champs. And on Monday, he stuck with the menu for North Dakota State's visit.

In January, with the White House kitchen staff furloughed due to the grinding shutdown of the federal government, the president served a similar meal to the Clemson University football team.

President Trump greeted the athletes, calling the group, "big, strong, powerful champions".

The school boasts the most titles in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision with seven, all since 2011.

"It was awesome, it was something I won't ever forget", Kennelly said.
