BOSTON HERALD:

When it comes to Super Bowl paraphernalia, President Donald Trump received a little extra from the Patriots following their fifth title.

In news first shared by former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci via Twitter direct message to user @rslashpatriots, and reported locally by CSNNE’s Tom Curran, Pats owner Robert Kraft gave Trump a Super Bowl LI ring.

According to the team’s vice president of media relations Stacey James, the ring had Trump’s name engraved on it. Usually, the Pats give the president a jersey and helmet.

Last night, James clarified some of the details on why Kraft gave Trump a ring, as well.
For starters, Kraft and Trump are friends. Since the Patriots were the first team to be honored by this administration, James relayed that Trump went “above and beyond” what the Patriots had previously experienced, giving tours to the players to parts of the 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. White House the other four Super Bowl winners did not get a chance to take in.

Trump wanted to have the ring displayed prominently in the presidential library, along with rest of the gifts the administration receives from future champions it honors.
