Trump paid for the food himself, the White House said in a statement, noting he wanted to cater an event with "everyone's favorite fast foods". Within one hour, it was all gone. "Great guys and big eaters!" he wrote.
Trump served the Tigers Burger King, McDonald's, Wendy's and Domino's Pizza during their Monday visit.
White House chefs would normally serve much fancier fare, but they are furloughed, staying home without paycheques as Trump fights with Congress over funding for a southern border wall.

Some championship athletes and teams have opted to forego the traditional White House visit since Trump took office.
In a since-deleted tweet, the literal President of the United States bragged about treating ACC football champions the Clemson Tigers to a smorgasbord of highway rest stop cuisine-including something called "hamberders". "They're right outside the room and I think we're going to let you see them", he said.
"And I will say the Republicans are really, really sticking together. But they're coming tonight, the national champions, subject to the weather".
"If it's American, I like it".
Later, Trump told the Clemson team that he had bought "1,000" food items, Time reported.
The football players walked into the event and found a table piled high with hamburgers from McDonald's, Wendy's and Burger King.
