President Donald Trump took in the big game Sunday evening at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Joined by first lady Melania Trump, chief of staff Reince Priebus and his family, according to The Hill, the president opted to wear a suit and tie, as did Priebus.

Much like his spot-on prediction of the outcome of the November election, Trump accurately predicted the winner and missed the point spread by only 2 points.
The president was asked during his pre-game interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly who would win the Super Bowl.
He hesitantly said the Patriots would win by 8 points.
“Well, I hate to make predictions,” Trump said. “But I’ll say, I don’t even know what are the odds, I guess it’s pretty even, so I’ll say the Patriots will win by 8 points.”
“Well, I like Bob Kraft. I like Coach Belichick and Tom Brady’s my friend,” he added.

“Trump’s prediction skills are through the roof!” a social media user noted:

And while Trump reportedly left the Super Bowl party early…

… he clearly watched the game to its exciting conclusion, as he later commented on Twitter about the New England Patriot’s “amazing comeback.”
What an amazing comeback and win by the Patriots. Tom Brady, Bob Kraft and Coach B are total winners. Wow!#SuperBowl -DJT
