President Trump has declined an offer from ESPN to fill out a NCAA basketball tournament bracket on-air next month, a "March Madness" tradition that his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, started in his first year in office and continued for each year of his presidency. Basketball fan Obama would make his picks on-camera for both the men's and women's brackets. But Trump may be doing something else with the sports network soon, with White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks telling the Washington Post: "We look forward to working with ESPN on another opportunity in the near future."
