It is SO refreshing having a true businessman in the White House.
Reports out today are that Donald Trump will divert from the Obama tradition of the POTUS filling out a March Madness basketball bracket.
Good for him!
The Country is in the toilet and a lot of work remains if we’re going to Make America Great Again. And our President knows it. He doesn’t need any frivolous distractions, he enjoys working and fixing problems! That’s what I want in a President….thank you Mr. Trump!

Here are the details from the Washington Post:
It appears that President Trump is passing on March Madness. He will not continue his predecessor’s annual tradition of filling out an NCAA tournament bracket on ESPN.
The network reached out to Trump’s staff and invited the president to fill out a bracket on-camera, just as President Barack Obama had the past several years. The network recently received word that Trump has passed. An ESPN spokesman said in a statement: “We expressed our interest to the White House in continuing the presidential bracket. They have respectfully declined.”
White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in an email to The Washington Post: “We look forward to working with ESPN on another opportunity in the near future.” Neither the White House nor ESPN had any details on what other opportunities might lie down the road.
The news didn’t exactly come as a surprise to ESPN executives. They knew with a change of president, the annual feature might not continue. Obama hosted an ESPN crew each March and filled out brackets for both the men’s and women’s tournaments. Two of those brackets are now property of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.
