President Donald Trump congratulated the Clemson Tigers on Tuesday for their victory over Alabama’s Crimson Tide in the college football championship game.

“Congratulations to a truly great football team, the Clemson Tigers, on an incredible win last night against a powerful Alabama team,” Trump wrote. “A big win also for the Great State of South Carolina.”

The Tigers surprised Alabama, beating them with a score of 44-16.

Trump asked the team to visit the White House to celebrate their victory.

“Look forward to seeing the team, and their brilliant coach, for the second time at the W.H.,” he wrote.

Clemson also won the 2016 football championship against Alabama, visiting the Trump White House in June of 2017.
