Patriots Gave Donald Trump Super Bowl Ring

The New England Patriots have provided a hint as to how they might be resolving what owner Robert Kraft has referred to as a first-class problem: Where will the team find room for its fifth Super Bowl championship banner?

Kraft and Trump have been longtime friends, and it was reported that the team was honored to be the first team to be invited to the White House during his presidency, according to a report from USA Today.

Team spokesman Stacey James told USA Today that Kraft felt the Patriots' most recent White House trip was the best one they've experienced.


The special will include interviews with Bill Belichick and other members of the coaching staff, much like the original "Do Your Job" documentary did following the Patriots' Super Bowl XLIX win over the Seahawks.

Previously the team visited the White House in 2015 when Barack Obama was in office, but the president was not given a Super Bowl ring during that visit.

Trump received a customized ring that mirrored what Patriots players and staff received following their Super Bowl victory.


Kraft was equally concilitory when he took the lecturn with Trump standing directly behind him.

No price tag was put on the rings, but Kraft's 2015 Super Bowl rings cost $36,500 each and included 200 diamonds.

Trump has been outspoken about his support of the now five-time world champions thanks to his friendship with Kraft and future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady. If the newest ring is anything close, the president will have to give it to the National Archives upon the conclusion of his term in office - because the value limit for gifts given to the president can not exceed $375.
