Brady's supposed endorsement came after a Trump hat was seen inside Brady’s locker, and the football star was quoted as saying of a Trump presidency: "That would be great.”

Brady now tells a Boston radio show that he’s not ready to endorse anybody.

“Whenever I vote, it is going to be my own choice based on how I feel. I don't even know what the issues are and I haven't paid attention to politics in a long time,” he said.

Brady says he and Trump are still golfing buddies. The Patriots quarterback was asked: “Did he cheat when he played you in golf?”

The Super Bowl winner laughed and said: “He likes to win. I'll say that.”

Meanwhile, on CNN the Republican frontrunner was asked about his aggressive campaign style.

Erin Burnett asked him: “So when people say the temperament question, they say ‘Here's a guy who will call someone a loser. They say that's childish that's not the temperament of a president.’”

Probably is a little childish but this is a campaign I’m responding to them, I’m a counter puncher,” he said.
