With kickoff for the 2019 Super Bowl closing in, Donald Trump is putting his faith in the Patriots. In an interview with CBS’ Face the Nation on Sunday, the president said he “would say they would win.”
“They have a very special owner and coach, and certainly they have, I guess, the greatest quarterback of all time,” Trump said, peppering in good words for Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, and Tom Brady.
The president also applauded the team for their “great chemistry.”
“A team needs chemistry. They certainly have it. So I think they’ll do well,” Trump said. “But we’ll see what happens.”
For his part, Kraft recently had favorable words for Trump. On Friday, the Patriots owner told Fox News that he knows the president is “working very hard to serve the best interests of the country.”
Later in his CBS interview, Trump was asked if the winners of Sunday’s game would be invited to the White House. He again predicted that the New England team would emerge victorious, saying that “the Patriots were here two years ago, and I’m sure they’ll be back.”
