Although daily briefings with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer occasionally end in fireworks, the Naval Reserve officer has earned a reputation for thinking on his feet and for running a tight ship.

The president has also alarmed activists by selecting a climate change denier, Scott Pruitt, to head the Environmental Protection Agency.

Kraft was one of at least seven National Football League team owners who gave $1 million each to Trump's inaugural committee, a new fundraising report shows. Brady's reason is different, personal family matters. He posted a wedding photo of his parents on Instagram and wished them a happy anniversary. "For 48 years, my sisters and I have had the best example of love, friendship and compassion in our lives!"

"BUY AMERICAN" Trump's "Buy American, Hire American", executive order leaves questions about how the government will enforce such an order and whether it will make any real difference in output and employment, according to steel executives and analysts. We all knew Tom Brady was a late scratch for the visit, and several other players such as Martellus Bennett and Devin McCourty made it known well in advance they wouldn't be attending either because of Trump. Earlier this month he jumped into the ring at Wrestlemania and had Brady's jersey with him at the Boston Red Sox opening day game. The ceremony follows the Patriots' historic comeback in the second half of Super Bowl 51, which Brady dedicated to his mother who battled cancer.

Belichick indicated that this trip to the White House was even more special than his previous visits.

"This year's championship was achieved after falling behind by 25 points", Kraft said.

"In that same year, a very good friend of mine for over 25 years, a man who is mentally tough and hardworking as anybody I know launched a campaign for the presidency against 16 career politicians facing odds nearly as long as we faced in the fourth quarter", he said.

Vice President Mike Pence says in Japan that Washington will work with its allies and China to put economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea but adds that the United States would defeat any attack with an "overwhelming response".

With the Patriots lined up behind him, Trump said: "No team has been this good for this long".
