MANCHESTER, NH (CBS) – Donald Trump said Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Coach Bill Belichick have endorsed him.
“Tom Brady, great guy, great guy, great friend of mine, great, great champion, unbelievable winner,” Trump announced at a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire Monday night. “He called today and he said ‘Donald I support you, you’re my friend, and I voted for you.’”
Brady has not confirmed that, but WBZ-TV’s Steve Burton confirmed Tuesday that Belichick did write a letter to Trump endorsing him.
The Republican nominee shared that letter with the crowd in Manchester.
Trump said Belichick congratulated him for a “tremendous campaign” and called the media “negative” and “slanted.”
“Hopefully tomorrow’s election results will give the opportunity to make America great again,” he said Belichick wrote.
