According to a report from Jonathan Swan of Axios, Trump has appointed Bill Belichick and some other prominent people in sports to his “Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition.” Trump signed an executive order in February to have the council focus more on encouraging kids to participate in sports. Under the Obama administration, First Lady Michelle Obama headed up the council and placed much of the focus on making school lunches healthier. In addition to Belichick, other members of the council will include former NFL running back Herschel Walker, retired MLB pitcher Mariano Rivera and three-time Olympic gold medalist volleyball player Misty May-Treanor. – TO
