Does Gisele Bundchen Support Donald Trump? Her Husband Has Been Back & Forth On His Support
NFL star Tom Brady has had a bit of an on-again, off-again relationship with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. He has at times endorsed the candidate, and then walked back that same halfhearted endorsement later on. What does his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, think of Trump? Bustle has reached out to her for comment. Many celebrity couples are often spoken of in one breath, as if they apparently share the same line of thinking, in spite of possible individual political beliefs. But Brady's endorsement of Trump has been a bit tricky, and Bundchen might not be 100 percent behind the Republican candidate herself.
A few of Bundchen's known political beliefs fall squarely in opposition with Trump's. He has touted a current opposition to abortion, though he has shown support for organizations like Planned Parenthood over time (The Washington Post, in fact, found that Trump once took five different opinions on abortion in the span of three days). As of April of this year, Trump said that it was up to the states to "protect the unborn," and that in a Trump presidency, he would make sure the states had those rights.
In a 2007 interview with a Brazilian newspaper, the supermodel voiced her opposition to the Catholic Church's stance on abortion, clearly describing herself as pro-choice. When asked if a woman should be given the right to an abortion, Bundchen stated: "If she thinks she doesn't have the money or the emotional condition to raise a child, why should she give birth?"
Bundchen was also named the Best Green International Celebrity at the 2011 Green Awards for her work in environmental activism. The title was given to her for the progress she had made on green issues as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program.
Trump, on the other hand, has been not-so-great on environmental issues. According to Mother Jones, he has called global warming a "hoax" and even joked that climate science was part of a Chinese conspiracy. His running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, has been equally atrocious on climate change, likewise suggesting that it is "a myth."
For his part, Brady will not be appearing at this week's Republican National Convention. Despite the event touting a group of A-list athletes showing up in the weeks prior to the convention, Brady won't attend the RNC convention, as was previously expected.
Considering Bundchen's own track record on the issues, one could certainly assume that she and Trump may not be the best of friends.
