- Former Trump ally makes decision following invasion of Capitol
- News is latest rebuke to president from sports world
Donald Trump has suffered yet another rebuke from a former ally with the New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick saying he will not accept the presidential medal of freedom.
Belichick, widely considered the greatest coach in NFL history, said he had made the decision after a Trump-inspired mob invaded the US Capitol last week. Trump had been set to announce Belichick’s award later this week.
