Trump Hosting Clemson At White House Despite Shutdown

President Trump is receiving "criticism for inviting the Clemson football team to the White House" this evening in the midst of the government shutdown. The visit by Clemson players and coaches comes "exactly one week after winning" the CFP title game. The trip "came together faster than visits from previous college football champions during the Trump administration." U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) are "also set to join the White House visit, their offices confirmed" (Anderson INDEPENDENT-MAIL, 1/14).
