Tom Brady Not Attending Patriots’ White House Visit

Tom Brady

NFL great Tom Brady will not be attending the White House team visit Wednesday to celebrate his Patriots Super Bowl victory, according to Mike Reiss, who covers the team for ESPN.  Brady has a family issue that he will be dealing with instead, according to a statement sent to Reiss.


Brady and Donald Trump are old friends, but the superstar quarterback tried to distance himself from the president when their friendship became a hotly debated talking point during Trump’s presidential run and later victory.


Trump bragged about his friendship with Brady while stumping on the campaign trail in New England.


This is the second time Brady has decided not to visit the White House. He was absent in 2015, also saying then he had a “family commitment.”
