The annual March Madness "presidential bracket" tradition left the White House with the Obamas.

As President Donald Trump settles into the White House, there's one tradition he won't be carrying on from Barack Obama: filling out a March Madness bracket. 

Obama made it a yearly ritual to fill out his picks for both men's and women's NCAA tournament champions. He even appeared on ESPN to talk about his choices. 

But when ESPN reached out to Trump to see if he would pick up where Obama left off, the White House "respectfully declined" the offer. 

Trump has attended a few Knicks games, but he seems to prefer golfing to basketball. He owns several golf courses around the world.
