The New York Times reported earlier this week that White House chief of staff John Kelly had noted Trump recently spent a “long time” on the phone with Belichick discussing Brady’s status with the team.
Brady called Trump a “good friend” and confirmed he had a “Make America Great Again” hat in his locker in 2015.For anyone who already hates the Pats, this just reinforces that hatred. Trump and the Pats are too easy to dislike.
