At a rally in Manchester, N.H., on Monday, Donald Trump read aloud from a letter that he claims Patriots coach Bill Belichick gave him.
He said Belichick gave him the letter, and when Trump asked if he could read it in New Hampshire, the coach asked to rewrite it — and made it better.
Trump read what appeared to be the whole letter’s contents on the stage in Manchester:
“Congratulations on a tremendous campaign. You have dealt with an unbelievable, slanted and negative media and have come out beautifully. You’ve proved to be the ultimate competitor and fighter. Your leadership is amazing. I have always had tremendous respect for you, but the toughness and perseverance you have displayed over the past year is remarkable. Hopefully tomorrow’s election results will give the opportunity to make America great again.”
