According to the Maggie Haberman and Katie Rogers of the Times, Trump joked he "could have had Tom Brady" as a son-in-law.
"Those who have tried to undermine the president have found me to be an obstacle", he said.
Sacramucci further claimed that Brady's wife, model Gisele Bundchen, had prevented her husband from joining his teammates on a visit to the White House to celebrate the Patriots' win at the Super Bowl in 2017. And the two have played golf.
But that doesn't mean Trump has cooled toward Brady. He speculated wildly that Brady's wife, Gisele Bündchen, may have convinced her husband to skip the Patriots' Super Bowl victory trip to the White House a year ago because of "jealousy".
Brady indeed may have been linked to Ivanka Trump, adding fuel to the president's wishful thinking.
Bündchen replied to a fan in an Instagram post that the couple wasn't backing Trump in the election - even though Trump said that Brady was voting for him.
And yet, after 18 months of bruising internal White House conflicts and bitter criticism that they have failed to be a moderating influence on the president, both Mr. Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump, the president's elder daughter, are still in Washington and still working as aides to Mr. Trump.
