NFL quarterback Tom Brady has endorsed Republican frontrunner Donald Trump for president.

Just days after Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hat was found in his locker, the New England Patriots star told reporters that he hopes the real estate mogul is elected.

“I hope so. That would be great. There’d be a putting green on the White House lawn, I’m sure of that,” he reportedly said on Wednesday.

Brady and Trump have been friends since 2002, according to reports. Like Trump, Brady is no stranger to controversy. The quarterback recently won his appeal for the #DeflateGate saga in which he was nearly suspended from playing for four games.

Trump made his support at the time clear, writing: “Congratulations to Tom Brady on yet another great victory – Tom is my friend and a total winner!”

The GOP frontrunner also wanted Brady to sue the league for $250,000.

And here’s a tweet from today about Brady’s comments:
