President Donald Trump is known for his candid remarks, and even when it comes to his family, no topic seems off-limits. Recently, reports have surfaced suggesting that Trump jokingly expressed a sentiment that could have made his family gatherings look quite different today.

According to The New York Times, Trump has repeatedly suggested that he “could have had Tom Brady” as a son-in-law, but fate led him to Jared Kushner instead. This isn’t the first time Trump has hinted at a hypothetical “switch.” In her book Raising Trump, Ivanka’s mother, Ivana, wrote, “At one point, Donald wanted her to date Tom Brady, the quarterback. He said, ‘You have to meet him!’ But Ivanka wasn’t into it.”

Back in 2004, Trump praised Brady as a “great guy” who would make a “great combination” with Ivanka, according to TMZ. Trump has long admired Brady, even suggesting that he would have liked to see Ivanka date the football star.

Brady, a prominent figure in American football, had a visible connection with Trump leading up to the 2016 election. In 2015, reporters spotted a “Make America Great Again” hat in Brady’s locker, and the quarterback expressed his support for Trump’s candidacy. “I mean, it’s pretty amazing what he’s been able to accomplish. He obviously appeals to a lot of people, and he’s a hell of a lot of fun to play golf with,” Brady said, as reported by Politico.

However, in 2017, after the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl against the Atlanta Falcons, Brady opted not to visit the White House. This decision sparked speculation, with rumors suggesting family reasons, particularly related to his wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen. According to TMZ, there were suggestions that Bündchen might have felt jealous of Ivanka because of a potential past relationship between the two.

This episode reportedly left Trump upset. CBS News reported that Trump was unhappy because Brady had “distanced himself” in the preceding months. Despite the jesting remarks and alleged disappointments, Trump has maintained a working relationship with his actual son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Kushner, who served as a senior aide to the president during Trump’s administration, remains close to the former president, despite Trump’s occasional dissatisfaction with his performance. Ivanka and Kushner have remained by Trump’s side throughout a tumultuous political environment where many other aides have come and gone.

In the ever-evolving narrative of Trump’s political career, Ivanka and Jared have proven to be constants in his inner circle, even as figures like Hope Hicks, Rob Porter, and Omarosa Manigault-Newman have left their marks. Despite Trump’s candid and unconventional expressions, particularly regarding family matters, Ivanka and Kushner have remained unwavering supporters.

Whether made in jest or not, Trump’s remarks about Brady shed light on his penchant for unconventional expressions and his admiration for the football star. While Brady may have chosen a different path, Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner remains a fixture in the former president’s inner circle, continuing to play a significant role in Trump’s political journey.
