Patriots have 34 players present for Trump White House visit

"He called today and he said, 'Donald, I support you, you're my friend and I voted for you, '" Trump said, to cheers, adding that Brady gave him permission to tell the crowd how he voted.

Trump says "no team has been good this long".

"I don't feel welcome in that house".

Patriots rookie wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell came up big in the Super Bowl for the Patriots.

Rob Gronkowski and some of the New England Patriots attended the White House for the annual "sports teams who win a championship visit the White House for some reason" visit. Quarterback Tom Brady did not attend the ceremony, releasing a statement earlier on Wednesday citing "recent developments" and "personal family matters" for the reason for his absence.

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.

The Patriots presented Trump with a helmet and a ceremonial jersey, No, 45 with his name imprinted on it.

The White House said it was notified that Brady was dealing with a "personal family matter" and will not attend the ceremony. Both years, the podium and players were staged in exactly the same formation, allowing a striking visual comparison between photos of the event. They overcame a 25 point deficit over the Atlanta Falcons, to win the championship.

Trump made no mention of Brady - a friend and golfing buddy - during his remarks outside the White House, instead focusing on his warm relationships with Patriots owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick. He was serving time in a maximum security prison for a 2015 murder conviction.

Patriots spokesman Stacey James said: "We are aware of the reports but I don't anticipate that we will be commenting today". The team's full roster includes 68 players, which means half of the squad skipped the celebration.

"Congratulations he said. All sorts of things that were really good".

Gronkowski asked Spicer if he needed help handling the press.

"I think I've got this, but thank you", Spicer responded, which drew a few laughs.

One of those faces included the Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady.
