Donald has always been one of Tom’s biggest supporters, especially through his Deflategate scandal. Before he ran for president, the tycoon always rallied to number 12’s side as being the ultimate “winner.” Tom returned the favor by wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat during Donald’s presidential run. Normally athletes stay out of things like politics so that it doesn’t divide their fan base, but in Tom’s case, they are personal pals. Donald is happy that with Tom’s five Super Bowl Championships, he’s backed WINNERS!
HollywoodLifers, how do you feel about Tom and Donald being pals? Does it affect how you think about the NFL star?
