President Donald Trump congratulates Patriots on Twitter after Super Bowl LI win
President Donald Trump predicted an eight-point victory for the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI, and he wasn’t too far off. The Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime to win their fifth championship, and Trump congratulated the entire organization afterwards on Twitter.
What an amazing comeback and win by the Patriots. Tom Brady, Bob Kraft and Coach B are total winners. Wow!

Trump, who’s a known supporter and friend of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft, was unsurprisingly complimentary of the Patriots after the win.
The president has repeatedly called Brady his “good friend” as the two have been close for several years. Kraft has also been a vocal supporter of Trump’s, as well.
