Brady Says He Hopes Trump Can Win Presidency

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said Wednesday that he hopes Donald Trump can win the presidency, hours before Trump participated in the second Republican debate.

The Super Bowl MVP, whose four-game suspension for using deflated footballs was recently overturned by a judge, grinned broadly as he talked about his golf partner.

“I hope so,” he said. “It would be great. There would be a putting green on the White House lawn, I’m sure of that.”

Brady’s locker sported a “Make America Great Again” red hat sent to him by Trump.

“It was a nice keepsake,” he said. “It could be a — yeah, a nice piece of memorabilia he sent me.”

Brady will lead the Patriots against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Brady doesn’t appear to have given to federal politicians, a review of Federal Election Commission records shows.

His boss, Robert Kraft, gave $5,000, the maximum amount, to President Barack Obama’s campaign and another $52,000 to Democratic Party committees for Obama’s 2012 re-election. Kraft is mostly a Democratic supporter but has given donations in recent years to Sens. Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham — both of whom are among those vying for the Republican presidential nomination.
