Donald Trump likes Tom Brady. Tom Brady apparently likes Donald Trump, too.
Asked by reporters on Wednesday whether Trump has what it takes to become the President of the U.S.A., Brady said, “I hope so. That would be great. There would be a putting green on the White House lawn. I’m sure of that.”
It’s not exactly an unequivocal endorsement, but it sounds like Brady is a member of Team Trump. Which sort of cuts against the prevailing thought that athletes should tread lightly when it comes to candidates they do or don’t support, especially for candidates who are more than a little polarizing, to say the least.
Trump is running as a Republican, and plenty of pro athletes lean to the right, in part because they pay a lot of money in taxes, and would prefer not to.
