Newly crowned national champion Clemson will visit the White House on Monday, President Donald Trump said in a tweet on Friday.

Clemson University head football coach Dabo Swinney hoisted the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Coaches' national championship trophy, and All-American Christian Wilkins tossed doughnuts and sported a victory cigar as thousands of fans celebrated the national champions during a parade through Clemson Saturday. He posted: 'What a game, what a coach, what a team!'

In his reasoning for canceling the Eagles visit, Trump said that the team disagrees "with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem".

The parade ended outside the stadium where the players walked down the hill and seniors thanked the crowd. He wanted to clear the air on that one.

"These trophies do not define us", he said. 'I'm sorry I'm such an ugly crier'.

'I won't be missing the championships we won, ' Ferrell said.

The Tigers will have some questions to answer before continuing their run.

Tackle Dexter Lawrence along with linebacker Tre Lamar and championship defensive MVP in cornerback Trayvon Mullen also chose to give up their eligibility to turn pro. 'I'll miss the people we won them with'. Fans were at the airport Wednesday and back on campus to greet the team.

'We have some the best fans in the world, ' defensive tackle Albert Huggins said.

Fans in the stadium cheered the replay of the championship game and roared as a retrospective of Swinney's 10 landmark years in charge flashed by. 'Let's make it three in the last four'.
