Robert Kraft Gifted President Trump Patriots Super Bowl LI Ring

Patriots' Vice President of Media Relations Stacy James confirmed to NBC News that Kraft gave the president the commemorative ring following the Patriots White House visit in April.

When the team met with Trump at a televised ceremony, they presented the president with more humble gifts: the customary jersey and football helmet.

Trump and Kraft are longtime friends, so the gesture by Kraft to give Trump the customized ring comes as no surprise.

Now, the next time Trump gets together for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, they can show off their Patriots Super Bowl rings.

The ring contains roughly 283 diamonds, reflecting the 28-3 deficit the Patriots overcame to defeat the Atlanta Falcons in one of the greatest comebacks in National Football League history.

Trump reportedly received the same Super Bowl ring design provided to Patriots players and staffers.

The NFL covers the cost of 150 rings for the Super Bowl-winning team, which includes players, coaches, staff members and team executives.

During an interview with Gary Myers of the New York Daily News, Kraft said his loyalty to Trump dates back to 2011 when his wife died and Trump called him every week for an entire year to see how he was holding up.

Fortunately for Kraft, the ring Trump was given was not his.

The special re-airs on NFL Network on Wednesday, Sept. 6 at 8 p.m., followed by the "America's Game" episode that focuses on the 2016 Pats at 9 and the "NFL's Top 10", which will count down Tom Brady's 10 best games, at 10.

According to USA Today, because of the amount of gifts that US presidents receive gifts from foreign leaders, there is a value limit to gifts accepted by presidents.
