Earlier this month, the college football team scored their second national championship in three seasons, defeating the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide with a final score of 44-16.
In a visit to the White House following their victory, Trump told reporters Monday that he foot the bill for a feast that included “lots of hamburgers” and “lots of pizza.”
"We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we're going to have a little fun," he said.
But the gesture didn’t sit well with Bush –who took to Twitter on the subject around midnight – saying Trump should’ve done more for the team.
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, @ClemsonFB you guys deserve better you are world champs and this is the honor you receive from our nations leader!? This is disrespectful on so many levels, just a huge slap in the face after that kind of performance! SMH! pic.twitter.com/rEprhVZf6n— Reggie Bush (@ReggieBush) January 15, 2019
The reception featured stacks of wrapped burgers from Wendy’s, as well as boxed burgers from McDonalds and pizza. French fries were also available in White House cups that bore the presidential seal.
