Add Tom Brady to the powerful New England Patriots voices who doesn’t believe skipping an upcoming White House visit is a big deal.
The Patriots, coming off their historic Super Bowl LI win, have made headlines recently as players have announced they will not attend the traditional White House visit (whenever it’s scheduled) because they oppose President Trump.
On Monday, New England’s owner, Robert Kraft, called players skipping the visit a non-issue and noted everyone has the right to decide what they want to do. And on Tuesday, Tom Brady echoed those sentiments.
“Everybody has their own choice. There’s certain years, like a couple years ago, I wanted to go and didn’t get the opportunity based on the schedule — we didn’t get told until I think like 10 days before we were going, and at that point I had something I’d been planning for months and couldn’t get there.”
Brady not only leads on the field, but off of it.
