If you were visiting the White House, you’d probably expect a pretty elegant food spread, right?

Well that apparently won’t be happening for the Clemson football team. When speaking with reporters Monday morning, President Trump said that the Tigers will have an array of fast food to choose from when they make their scheduled visit to Washington D.C. later Monday.

McDonalds? Burger King? Wendy’s? Pizza? It will all be there, according to the president.

“The Clemson national championship team will be coming tonight. It will be exciting,” Trump said. “Very great team. An unbelievable team. I think we’re going to serve McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger Kings with some pizza. I really mean it. It will be interesting. I would think that’s their favorite food.”

It is the offseason, after all, so maybe Dabo Swinney’s strength and nutrition staff will let the guys slide on the kind of food they’re putting into their bodies.

Nonetheless, it should be a pretty interesting experience to visit the White House. Of course, some of the Clemson players have already made the trip. The team was honored by President Trump in the summer of 2017 after the program’s previous national championship victory over Alabama to cap off the 2016 season.

And for Swinney, it will be his third time. The Clemson coach won a national title as a player at Alabama in the early 90’s.

Here is the ceremony from 2017:
