(BLOOMBERG) -- Hours before the Super Bowl, President Donald Trump said he would allow his young son to play football if he wanted to but wouldn’t encourage it because “it’s a dangerous sport.”
Trump was asked in an interview airing on CBS before the biggest National Football League game of the year whether he would let his son Barron, 12, play American football.
