Tom Brady shuts down questions on relationship with President Trump

New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady maintained a "no-Trump-questions" policy at Super Bowl media availability on Monday, when he shut down inquiries around his relationship with the president.

The three-time Super Bowl MVP fielded press questions at a Super Bowl LI event in Houston, but refused to take a political position when asked about his relationship with President Donal Trump.

"I'm not talking politics at all," Brady said. "I just want to focus on the positive aspects of this game, my teammates and the reason why we are here. It has taken a lot of hard work to get to this point. I just want to focus on the positive nature of two great teams competing at this level."

Brady was also asked about protests against Trump's executive order enacting a temporary immigration ban, to which Brady responded with a suggestion that he wasn't aware of the current event.

"What's going on in the world?" Brady responded. "I haven't paid much attention. I'm just a positive person."

Months after Trump announced his presidential campaign, Brady displayed a red "Make America Great Again" hat in his Gillette Stadium locker -- which he later told Boston sports radio station WEEI was a gift from Trump delivered through Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

"He always gives me a call and different types of motivational speeches at different times," Brady told WEEI. "So now that he's running for president, he sent me a hat, and he gave it to R.K.K. a couple weeks ago. So it found its way to my locker."

Brady has since avoided answering questions regarding his relationship with the billionaire businessman-turned president.

Brady isn't only protective of fielding media questions regarding the president, though. The California native "banned" his father from talking to the media on Monday, after Tom Brady Sr. said that anyone with Roger Goodell's ethics "doesn't belong on any stage that Tom Brady is on."
