Donald Trump is very busy with the Iowa caucuses being held on Monday and the New Hampshire primary just a week away, but he is still keeping an eye on the NFL and has thrown his weight behind one of the Super Bowl teams.
The Republican presidential candidate told CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday that he would be supporting the underdog Broncos as he considered Peyton Manning to be a friend.
"Your Carolina team is sort of a hot team. And the quarterback's doing great. I very much have always liked Peyton Manning. He's a very good guy. I know him. And he's a very, very good guy," Trump told CBS' Face the Nation on Sunday. "So I have to go with the person I know and I like. I like the other team. I think the other team looks fantastic. Probably, they would be favored by something. But I'll stick with Peyton because he's a very good guy."
Trump seems to collect quarterback friends, as his relationship with golfing buddy Tom Brady was widely publicized throughout the season, with Brady featuring a hat with Trump’s campaign slogan in his locker after a preseason game.
