“However ought to I turn out to be President of the USA, and the celebrities within the universe line up, and my crew is the Tremendous Bowl champions that yr… I’m telling you, after they’re within the White Home, I’ll flip to the world and say — it received’t be a slip of the tongue — I’ll say, ‘I’m proud to be right here with the New Jersey Giants.’”

Booker, sizzling off the primary set of Democratic presidential candidate debates, mentioned that too many native groups — together with the Brooklyn Nets, previously of New Jersey — have been snatched up by neighboring New York. If elected, Booker says he’ll flex his presidential muscle to make the identify stick.

“At that time, I determine I’ll have swagger, Secret Service, and the nuclear codes,” mentioned Booker. “Are they actually going to step to me and proper me?”
