The President’s Old Tweet About The Jets Gets Unearthed After Team Gets 1st Win of The Season (TWEET)
New York Jets fans are still not thrilled today after their team went out on Sunday and played hard enough to secure their first victory of the season. The team won its first game of the year–and lost control of the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Both New York and the Jacksonville Jaguars are 1-13, but the jags would have to win another game for the Jets to have the No. 1 pick again.
Nearly six years ago to the day, President Donald Trump tweeted about the Jets pulling out a meaningless 16-11 win over the Tennessee Titans to move to 3-11 on the season.
“The Jets should have let them score to get the number one draft pick, who will be really good,” Trump wrote at the time. “It will just never change for them!”
The Jets would end up with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, which they used to draft USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams.
