Posts circulating on social media Tuesday quoted Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence after the team’s visit to the White House as saying: “President Trump got all our favorite foods. It was the best meal we ever had. Then we go and see the coastal elite media trashing it for not being organic vegan. We’re football players, not bloggers. This was a perfect blue collar party.”


Lawrence denounced the quote Tuesday tweeting, “I never said this by the way. I don’t know where it came from. However the trip to the White House was awesome!”

Ross Taylor, assistant athletic director for Clemson football communications, told the AP that Lawrence was shown the false quote this morning.

“Everything that is presented in that meme is fabricated,” Taylor said.


President Donald Trump served the team an array of fast food during their visit to celebrate the team’s win in the national college football championship. Trump, a fast food lover, said he even paid for their meal himself because of the partial government shutdown, The Associated Press reported. The choice of menu was criticized by late-night TV hosts and others who found it beneath what should be served to national champions visiting the White House.

The false quote circulated in a post on social media with the claim overlaid in text over a photo of confetti falling onto the quarterback after his team’s win 44-16 against the Alabama Crimson Tide on Jan. 7.

Migos rapper Quavo invited Lawrence and the team to join him for a better meal, which Lawrence retweeted.

Taylor confirmed to the AP that Lawrence denied the quote on his Twitter account @Trevorlawrencee Tuesday afternoon.

    The fact you all are going on and on about what 45 gave those players and you all are the ones that are mad as they loved the food; they loved being there, or they would not have gone. You all better wake up and get your head out of the sand. The QB for them was happy to be there as he is like many that look like him; These Folks support him, and that is why he Will get another four years. You all better wake up and stop going for the hotdog in the tailpipe.
