An NFL quarterback reportedly received a congratulatory phone call from President Trump following his team’s win on Sunday night.
Kirk Cousins, who was in Washington at the start of Trump’s presidency, received a phone call from the United States president following the Vikings’ win over the Giants.
Minnesota had been struggling on offense this season, specifically in the passing game, before breaking out against New York.
President Trump reportedly called Cousins to “briefly” congratulate him on the win, per CBS Minnesota.
A spokesperson for the team confirmed that Trump phoned Cousins to “briefly congratulate him and the Vikings on the win in New York.” The call came following Sunday’s 28-10 victory against the New York Giants.
Cousins has spent time with President Trump, playing a round of golf in 2017. President Trump is reportedly coming to Minnesota for a rally later this week.
Trump is planning a visit to Minnesota later this week, for a “Keep America Great” rally scheduled to take place at Target Center in Minneapolis Thursday evening.
According to a source, the two briefly discussed the rally, but Cousins will not be attending. The team said the focus of the call was not the rally.
The Vikings, meanwhile, improved to 3-2 on the season with the win.
