People Stunned To See What Patriots' Owner Did To Trump After White House Visit

While we all know that President Donald Trump has promised to ‘Make America Great Again,’ did he also make some kind of similar promise to the New England Patriots? We’ll go out on a limb and say no to that, but there’s plenty of other questions swirling about in regards to Trump and the Patriots. Why has he been rewarded for the Patriots' stirring come-from-behind victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51? As the New York Daily News shares, Trump has been rewarded in a big league fashion, as he’s now the proud owner of a Super Bowl ring.

It’s no secret that Patriots owner Robert Kraft is friends with Trump, but the decision seems a little odd. The News offers up some details on the reasoning behind the gesture.

“USA Today reporter Henry McKenna confirmed Trump received a Patriots Super Bowl ring through former White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci. The piece of jewelry is from the team's historic comeback against the Falcons in Super Bowl 51,” the News reports. “The Patriots told CSN New England the reason behind the ring presentation was because they were the first Super Bowl champions to visit the White House during the Trump presidency.”

The Patriots visited the White House back in April, and Trump was presented with his own custom jersey. That’s standard practice when a team visits the White House, but a championship ring is not. Kraft and Trump are obviously pretty tight, as the Patriots owner has been vocal in his support for the commander-in-chief.

“Kraft told The Daily News in January he remains loyal to Trump because the President would check in with the owner continuously after his wife died in 2011. Trump now joins Vladimir Putin in world leaders who have Patriots Super Bowl Championship rings,” the News adds. “Kraft only has four of his five Super Bowl rings after he showed Putin the ring from the Patriots third Super Bowl victory. Putin put the ring on and then kept it on, never giving it back to the Patriots owner.”

Hmmm. So you’re saying there’s something to that whole Trump-Russia thing. Nah, but we’ll color ourselves less than shocked if the mainstream media devotes hours of primetime airspace to dissect the connection from every angle imaginable. In any event, it’s something else for football fans to chatter about as the season draws near.

The Patriots are locked and loaded as they prepare to defend their Super Bowl crown, and it would be less than stunning to see them pull off a repeat. As for Trump, he has some more work to do on that whole MAGA thing. He’s been bruised and battered by the mainstream media in the wake of Charlottesville, but he punched back in a big way last night at a raucous rally in Phoenix.

Was it the ring that gave him the strength? Probably not, but we’ll guess that it’s really cool to look at and brag about.
