The White House on Monday dished up heaping platters of fast-food burgers, chicken, fries and pizza for the North Dakota State Bisons football team in honor of their winning a record seventh Football Championship Subdivision National Championship.

The grub came from Chick-fil-A, McDonald’s and Domino’s, and team members were lauded by the president before they dug in.

“I know you people,” the president said in explaining why he was serving up the fast-food feast instead of the usual catered White House spread.

“We like American companies.”

None of the Bisons boycotted the event, their coach said.

“We addressed it,” Coach Matt Entz told the Grand Forks Herald, referring to politics.

“This isn’t a political trip, this is a Bison trip and, personally, I sold it as two things: It’s one more opportunity for the 2018 team to be together, but also in my mind the start of the 2019 season and the things we’re going to do together.”

The Bisons on Jan. 5 beat Eastern Washington 38-24, for a record seventh title in eight seasons in the Football Championship Subdivision.

Trump invited them to the White House at the request of GOP North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven, a multimillionaire former banker-turned-politician, last month.

They’re the latest championship team to visit Trump at the White House for a fast-food chow-down.

Trump sprang for more than $5,000 worth of fast food — among his favorites — when the national champion Clemson Tigers visited the White House in January during the government shutdown.

Unlike the Bisons, many Tigers players passed on the invite, including a majority of the black players.
