Tom Brady confirmed Tuesday that a Donald Trump campaign hat reading "Make America Great Again" spotted in his locker over the weekend is his, saying he's a friend and fan of the GOP frontrunner.
Barstool Sports reporter Feitelberg tweeted a picture of Brady's locker on Saturday, showing the red hat — the same style Trump wore to the Iowa State Fair — placed neatly on a shelf.
On Tuesday morning, Tom Brady confirmed in a radio interview that the Trump hat was in fact his.
According to USA Today
, he said Trump has done "amazing" things, and called him a good friend.
An endorsement from a high-profile public figure like Brady could be huge for Trump's presidential campaign, many noted, while other commenters on social media joked that Brady should run as the billionaire's vice presidential nominee.
Trump was among the first to congratulate the New England quarterback on Thursday, after a judge ruled that the NFL could not sustain its Deflategate-related suspension against him.
The tweet was not the first time Trump has publicly defended Brady, as he's said in interviews that the quarterback has been treated unfairly by the league.
