Donald Trump got his New Hampshire crowd really excited tonight when he announced that Tom Brady told him he voted for him.
Trump praised Brady and said, “He called today and he said, ‘Donald, I support you, you’re my friend, and I voted for you.'”
The crowd went wild.

UPDATE 2:08 AM ET: Yahoo News’ Hunter Walker contacted Belichick, who declined to comment when asked about the letter. Walker also reported that the Trump campaign said that Belichick sent them the letter via email and provided Yahoo News with the full text.
