Tom Brady is in the news again.
The Patriots quarterback recently said he would vote “no” in the Nov. 8 election, and he told reporters Tuesday that he would support President-elect Donald Trump if the two meet in person.
“I’m not going to vote for somebody who votes for Donald Trump,” Brady said.
Brady said he thinks Trump “has more charisma and I think he’s a lot better for the country than Hillary Clinton.”
“I don’t think she’s as good as he is, but he’s going to get his people in the White House and that’s what I think we need to do,” he added.
He did, however, say he thinks the country needs to “get to work” and get Trump elected.
Trump is also in a tough spot after he lost the popular vote in November to Hillary Clinton.
According to the latest CNN/ORC Poll, 53 percent of Americans say they would prefer the country go to a “third party” candidate in the presidential election and 37 percent say they’d prefer the outcome be determined by the popular votes.
Democrats were able to carry the White house in the election, while Republicans are losing ground to the opposition party.
However, Brady and other Republicans are hoping to change that dynamic.
After Trump won the presidency, Brady said he’s been “on the lookout” for a new team that would give him a “different voice” and “better representation.”
“We’re not going anywhere,” he said.
“We want to continue to work with the administration, and I hope they’ll be willing to continue working with us to do that.”
Bradys comments come amid growing tensions between the White and Democratic parties as the two parties continue to face accusations of bias and racism.
On Monday, the president of the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez, resigned amid reports that he had accepted a $15 million loan from Goldman Sachs, the same bank that Trump’s campaign allegedly received millions of dollars in loan funds from.
The bank also was one of the lenders that contributed to the DNC’s SuperPAC, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which is currently in the process of launching a $10 million television ad campaign targeting Trump.
In an interview with The Washington Post on Tuesday, Brady also said that he’d be open to working with Trump.
“I’d love to work in the administration and have a say in things like that,” Brady told The Post.
“If he’s willing to work and I’m willing to have a hand in things, I would be open.”
Brady also said he had no plans to resign as a player if he’s elected.
