President Trump who came to New Orleans for the National Championship game when LSU beat Clemson now apparently would like to see the champion Tigers again.  This time in the White House.   

A White House spokesperson has confirmed to The Baton Rouge Advocate that the Tigers are scheduled for a victory visit to the nation's capital on Friday.  The team will be honored just days after beating Clemson 42-25 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Monday in the College Football National Championship game.

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump came to New Orleans and attended the game along with several Republican representatives from Louisiana and South Carolina, like GOP Whip Steve Scalise. 

It will be the second Louisiana team to visit Washington DC in recent months.  Last fall the Eastbank All-stars from Jefferson Parish won the Little League World Series and were invited to D.C. to celebrate and meet the President.
