Belichick’s answer to questions about letter to Trump: ‘Seattle’
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick had a one-word answer to questions about his letter to Donald Trump.
That word was “Seattle.”
Belichick gave a brief statement about his letter to Trump during a press conference
“Our friendship goes back many years, and I think anybody that’s spent more than five minutes with me knows I’m not a political person,” Belichick said. “My comments are not politically motivated – friendship and loyalty to Donald.”
Belichick said he writes “hundreds of letters and notes every month.”
A reporter asked if Belichick was “happy or annoyed” that Trump read the letter.
Belichick’s response: “Seattle.”
The Patriots, of course, play host to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
As the reporter continued to follow up, Belichick interjected with “Seattle” four more times.
“We’ve got a huge football game this week against a great football team, great organization,” Belichick said.
