The New England Patriots are set to visit President Donald Trump at the White House today to celebrate their Super Bowl win, but quarterback and Super Bowl 51 MVP Tom Brady just announced that he won’t be in attendance.
The 39-year-old NFL quarterback has a relationship with the President, but never officially confirmed he backed him for the job.
Unfortunately, Tom‘s mother Galynn has been ill with what many believe is cancer. Galynn was able to watch Tom win the Super Bowl live in the stadium. We’re wishing Tom and his family well.

“I am so happy and excited that our team is being honored at the White House today. Our team has accomplished something very special that we are all proud of and will be for years to come. Thank you to the President for hosting this honorary celebration and for supporting our team for as long as I can remember. In light of some recent developments, I am unable to attend today’s ceremony, as I am attending to some personal family matters. Hopefully, if we accomplish the goal of winning a championship in the future years, we will back on the South Lawn again soon. Have a great day!,” via NFL’s Ian Rapoport.
