Coach Belichick says letter to Trump 'not politically motivated' (AFP)

Trump read parts of the letter on Monday night during a campaign appearance in New Hampshire in which he told supporters that he had the support of both Belichick and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Both are popular in New Hampshire, where the Patriots are the nearest NFL team and a regional darling after four Super Bowl crowns with Brady as quarterback and Belichick as coach, most recently to conclude the 2014 season.
