Although the University of Virginia men's championship team is skipping a White House visit - with Coach Tony Bennett citing logistical problems involving players who've declared for the National Basketball Association draft - there was never any doubt that Baylor would come to Washington, D.C., if given the opportunity.

"Congratulations on the win sorry you got served fast food in the White House", another laughed. Trump said he preferred female jersey tops, "I love those short sleeves, such handsome arms".

And for the first time as president, Trump received a basketball jersey.

On Monday, it was the national champion Baylor women's basketball team's turn to have their White House visit include fast food from Chick-fil-A, Wendy's, Burger King and McDonald's.

President Donald Trump holds up a jersey that was presented to him as he welcomed members of the Baylor women's basketball team, who are the 2019 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball National Champions, to the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, Monday, April 29, 2019. President Trump joked he would "mess up his hair", before putting the hat on. This was the first women's basketball team visit to the Trump White House, and, and a lot of viral moments, including a photo with President Donald Trump, have come out of the trip.

'Would you like to work at the White House, by any chance?' Trump asked Baylor's Lady Bear's head coach Kim Mulkey. He commented about the sleeves (and his arms). Great definition, ' Trump jested when he was given the female jersey.

"I watched that last game and that was a tough, rough game", he added, via USA Today.

University of Virginia's men's basketball coach declined the invite to the white house. I want everyone to say they went to the White House.

Coming to the White House, however, has been a controversial decision for some invited teams during the Trump administration. "We would have to respectfully decline an invitation".
