That certainly didn’t take long.
Last Monday, Clemson took Alabama to the woodshed in claiming its second national championship the past three seasons. The next day, President Donald Trump extended a formal invitation to the Tigers to visit the White House.
Friday, and even as the government shutdown rolls along, the POTUS confirmed that Clemson will visit the White House exactly one week after winning the College Football Playoff title game.
There’s been no official word from Clemson on the development.
This will mark the Tigers’ second trek to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with Trump sitting in the Oval Office as the 2016 team, which beat the Crimson Tide in that year’s championship game, accepted the invitation and visited Washington D.C. in June of 2017.
