The president has made clear his friendship with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, but according to his ex-wife Ivana Trump in her new book “Raising Trump,” Donald Trump thought Brady would make a good companion for his daughter, Ivanka Trump.
In a passage discussing Ivanka’s love life growing up, Trump’s ex-wife claims he wanted Ivanka to date Brady.
“At one point, Donald wanted her to date Tom Brady, the quarterback,” the book reads. “He said, ‘You have to meet him!’ But Ivanka wasn’t into it.”
Brady and Trump have been linked together several times. When Trump’s campaign first began, Brady had a “Make America Great Again” hat in his locker. Brady several times has called Donald Trump a “friend” though he never verbally endorsed him.
After the president said Brady called him before the inauguration, Brady defended their relationship, saying: “Why does that make such a big deal? … If you know someone, it doesn’t mean that you agree with everything that they say or do. Right?”
