Trump received Patriots Super Bowl ring after White House visit

James said that of the five times the Patriots have visited the White House, this one included the best treatment - in Kraft's eyes - by allowing the most time with the President and including the most impressive White House tour.

Henry McKenna of USA Today confirmed Monday that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft gave President Donald Trump a Super Bowl ring following the Pats' 34-28 overtime win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51 on February 5. Kraft wanted to do something more for the president and someone he calls a close friend.
