Tom Brady seems to have a Trump hat in his locker

“Tom wants to make American great again,” Barstool Sports writer John Feitelberg tweeted Saturday alongside an image of what is apparently Brady’s locker. Inside it is a red baseball cap with Trump’s campaign slogan.
Trump has repeatedly appeared in public wearing a similar hat.
The outspoken billionaire lauded Brady this week after a federal judge overturned the NFL’s four-game suspension of Brady.
“Congrats to Tom Brady on yet another great victory,” Trump tweeted Thursday. “Tom is my friend and a total winner!”
U.S. District Court Judge Richard Berman on Thursday said the football league’s penalty against Brady lacks significant legal standing.
Brady has repeatedly insisted he is innocent of a conspiracy to deflate footballs during a pivotal playoff game last season.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell countered on Thursday that the league is appealing Berman’s ruling “in order to uphold the collectively-bargained responsibility to protect the integrity of the game.”
No longer suspended, Brady is now set for a season-opening matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Foxborough this Thursday.
Trump previously defended the star athlete before launching his Oval Office bid from New York City last June.
“I hope Tom Brady sues the hell out of the @nfl for incompetence and defamation,” the real estate tycoon tweeted on May 13. “They will drop the case against him – and he will win.”
He had also used Brady’s suspension to jab at Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and praised Brady as “an honest guy” and “a great guy” when speaking in Boston.
