Former President Barack Obama Releases His Official 2018 March Madness Brackets

Obama then picks NMSU to lose to Auburn in the round-of-32. The Huskies had their 111-game winning streak snapped by Mississippi State in last year's Final Four.

Obama, whose NCAA Tournament bracket became an annual segment on ESPN, has Kentucky losing to Arizona in the second round of the tournament.

The 28-5 Aggies are 5-point underdogs as of Wednesday to the 23-9 Tigers of the Atlantic Coast Conference. His Final Four? Virginia, UNC, Villanova and Michigan State.

Obama picked the Spartans to beat No. 1 overall seed Virginia in the title game.

House approves bill to improve school safety
Fifteen-year-old Chloe Appel of Gaithersburg, Maryland, held a sign that said, "Fix this before I text my mom from under a desk". Scalise said the bipartisan nature of the bill shows how committed Congress is to preventing future school shootings.

In the women's bracket, Obama is predicting a rematch of last year's final: UConn vs. Mississippi State. In his women's bracket, the Final Four includes UConn, Notre Dame, Mississippi State and Louisville.

Obama's picks aren't too shocking, but he does have five of the eight SEC men's teams winning their first-round games.

Donald Trump (45) won't do one. but Barack Obama (44) is still filling out his March Madness bracket - and he's picking Michigan State - a 3 seed - to win it all!

He declined an invitation a year ago from ESPN to do so on-air, as Obama did during his presidency.
