Trump has maintained a friendly relationship with the New England Patriots, one of the teams playing in this year's Super Bowl. 

The president is friends with the team's owner, Robert Kraft, as well as star quarterback Tom Brady. 

He has also exchanged letters with coach Bill Belichick. 

The president's past remarks will most likely loom over this year's game, given his criticism of players kneeling in protest during the national anthem. 

Relations between Trump and the NFL have been rocky since last year, when the president ripped team owners for allowing players protesting racial injustice to kneel during the anthem. 

"Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he's fired." Trump said at a rally in Alabama in September. 

The president continued his attack on the players on Twitter, while NFL players across the country linked arms and knelt in solidarity as a response to his comments.
