"Just serving hamburgers today", the Home of the Whopper said.

As if President Donald Trump serving a bunch of fast food at the White House to a college football team weren't weird enough, now Burger King is mocking Trump on Twitter after he misspelled the word "hamburger" in an early morning tweet.

Trump said he paid for more than 1,000 "hamberders", and within one hour, they were all gone.

In addition to food from Burger King, the Clemson team - who were visiting the White House on Monday to celebrate their national championship victory - were also served food from McDonald's, Wendy's, and Domino's. "Great guys and big eaters!" he added. Very great team. They'll be coming tonight.

Trump, a fast-food lover, said he paid for the meal himself because of the partial government shutdown, which has led to furloughs among federal workers, including at the White House. 'And I know no matter what we did, there's nothing that you could have that's better than that'. "I want to see what's here when we leave, because I don't think it's going to be much".

"I really mean it", Trump told reporters outside the White House.

The partial government shutdown, now into its record 24th day, has furloughed more than 800,000 federal government workers after Trump dug in on a campaign pledge to build a wall on the southern border with Mexico, demanding Dollars 5.7 billion from Congress for the project.

The dinner was held for the winners of the 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship, the Clemson University Tigers.

Although Obama's successor does not exactly live a populist lifestyle in most regards, his predilection for McDonald's does project a more man-of-the-people vibe than Obama, as far as burgers are concerned.
