What Tom Brady Has Said About Donald Trump’s Friendship
On Tuesday, Tom Brady’s poorly veiled dig at Donald Trump’s suspicions of electoral fraud in the 2020 presidential election drew a lot of attention, not least since the player and former president are longtime friends.
Brady, 43, joked about people not believing the Buccaneers’ victory as he and his teammates visited the White House following their Super Bowl victory, alluding to bogus allegations that President Joe Biden, 78, was not the true winner against Trump, 75, last year.

In an interview on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show in 2020, Brady said, “He became someone that would come out to our games and stand on the sideline and yell for the Patriots.” “He always had and still has a way of connecting with people.”
Trump was so enamored with Brady that he wished for him and his then-unmarried daughter, Ivanka Trump, to get together.
“I believe he’s a really interesting individual. In 2004, Trump told Playboy, “I got to know him when he was a judge at a jitterbug contest I joined after the Patriots won the Super Bowl.” “He’s a winner, and by that I mean he makes the pass every time he needs to.
“You’ve got it. This is a condensed version of the information.
