    Tom Brady no longer wants to reveal who he voted for in the presidential election. 

    In a radio interview with Kirk and Callahan on WEEI-FM on Monday morning, the New England Patriots signal caller said he doesn’t want to discuss politics anymore and added that there has been too much negativity in the past week.

    "I am not talking politics anymore, I have other things to worry about. Just speaking with my family, it's a bad idea," he said. "I know I told you I would, and then after I told you I would I changed my mind."

    President-elect Donald Trump said the day before the election that both Brady and Patriots head coach Bill Belichick were voting for him. Appearing in Manchester, New Hampshire, Trump opened the rally by telling the crowd he got a phone call from Brady and a letter from Belichick. 

    Brady did vote - we know that much, as the Brookline Town Clerk's Office shared a photo of the quarterback turning in his absentee ballot.

    He never confirmed who he voted for, but had said last week that he would be ready to reveal his decision after the election.

    Brady did say that he remains "hopeful and optimistic" that the country will move forward. But he said his focus remains football.
