The New England Patriots sent a valuable Super Bowl gift to Donald Trump
The president has something in common with Vladimir Putin
The team confirmed to CSN New England on Monday that Trump was recently given a Super Bowl LI ring. The Patriots decided to give Trump a ring because they were to the first championship team to visit the White House after Trump had taken office.
Ex-White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci told Reddit that Trump's plan is to put the ring in his presidential library one day.
The Patriots sending a ring to Trump isn't a huge surprise. Team owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady have all been outspoken supporters of Trump over the past few years. On the day before the election in November, Trump mentioned that Brady had called him and that Belichick had written a letter to Trump .
Of course, Brady and Trump might not be on the best of terms right now considering that Brady skipped out on the Patriots' White House.
Anyway, the gesture by the Patriots means that Trump is now the proud new. If you're wondering how in the name of Vince Lombardi you can squeeze 283 diamonds on to one ring, here's an up-close look of the jewelry.
The Patriots' gesture also means that Trump is now the second world leader who owns one of New England's Super Bowl rings because Vladimir Putin.
If Trump's smart, he'll never let Putin touch his Super Bowl ring.
