Trump received Patriots Super Bowl ring after White House visit

The New England Patriots sent a valuable Super Bowl gift to Donald Trump

The Patriots have made five visits to the White House after each of their five Super Bowl titles, all since the 2001 season.

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?

The team gave the president a jersey and a helmet, which are the normal gifts a president receives when a team visits the White House.

Trump said Kraft, old friends and neighbors for years in Palm Beach, and the longtime coach Bill Belichick had "built a culture dedicated to winning".

While the Patriots gave Trump a Super Bowl ring, he might not even get a visit from the current National Basketball Association champion.

USA Today reporter Henry McKenna confirmed Trump received a Patriots Super Bowl ring through former White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci.

Trump now joins Vladimir Putin in world leaders who have Patriots Super Bowl Championship rings. The rings featured more than 280 diamonds and were crafted in 10-karat white gold. Additional rings and any extra costs for commemorative rings are accounted for by the team, according to league rules.

Fortunately for Kraft, the ring Trump was given was not his.

Monday, James clarified some of the details on why Kraft gave Trump a ring, as well.

According to USA Today, because of the amount of gifts that US presidents receive gifts from foreign leaders, there is a value limit to gifts accepted by presidents.
