Donald Trump Claims Tom Brady, Bill Belichick Are Supporting Him

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Donald Trump says the four-time Super Bowl winning NFL coach and quarterback tandem, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, are supporting him.

Addressing crowd at a Manchester, New Hampshire on Monday night before Election Day, the presidential candidate claims that Brady has voted for him.

"[Brady] called today and he said, 'Donald, I support you, you're my friend, and I voted for you.'"

However, Brady's wife Gisele said this wasn't true via an Instagram comment on Friday.

"Gisele I heard you and Tom were backing Trump! Is that true?? @gisele," the commenter asked.

"NO!" she responded.

Brady reportedly said on Monday morning that he had not voted yet.


Furthermore, Trump read a letter that he says the New England Patriots coach wrote for Trump to read to the crowd.

Election Day Freebies!

"Congratulations on a tremendous campaign," Trump said Belichick wrote. "You have dealt with an unbelievable slanted and negative media and have come out beautifully. You've proved to be the ultimate competitor and fighter."

A report on Tuesday morning confirmed that Belichick did actually write the letter Trump read to the crowd.
