Fans In Boston Cheer Donald Trump

Friday night Donald Trump praised the New England Patriots’ embattled quarterback, saying that the NFL should “leave Tom Brady alone.”

“We love Tom Brady,” Mr. Trump told reporters before speaking at an event with supporters held at a private home in Norwood, Mass., outside Boston. His comments brought cheers from Patriots’ fans in the crowd. “As you know, he’s a very good friend of mine.”

Donald Trump’s comments came in response to a question about whether Mr. Brady should reach a settlement with the National Football League and the NFL Players Association over his 4-game suspension in light of the “Deflategate” scandal.

A federal judge has urged Mr. Brady and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell settle the case or to appear in his courtroom on 31 August before a 4 September target for a ruling. Both sides agree that they want the matter decided before the Patriots’ 10 September season opener at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“I know Tom Brady,” Mr. Trump said. “Tom Brady is an honest guy. He is a great guy, a great champion, winner, the fans love him. Leave him alone.”

Mr. Brady was suspended by the NFL after it was discovered he used under-inflated footballs in last year’s AFC Championship Game and for allegedly failing to cooperate with the league’s investigation.

This is not the 1st time Mr. Trump has come to Mr. Brady’s defense. Speaking last week on TV Mr. Trump said the league’s treatment of the Super Bowl Champion was ‘ridiculous.’

“They ought to go back to playing football. This country has bigger problems,” he said in the interview.

Have a terrific weekend.
