President Donald Trump declined to publicly fill out a bracket last year and it's not clear if he will do one this year.

Former President Barack Obama shared a photo of his 2018 NCAA tournament brackets on Wednesday, revealing he selected Michigan State and CT as his men's and women's champions, respectively.

Obama has the Spartans beating Bucknell, Syracuse, Duke, and top-seeded Kansas to reach the Final Four along with defending national champion North Carolina, Villanova, and Virginia.

Of course, President Obama went to Harvard. but they suck at basketball and didn't make the NCAA tourney.

Acg Wealth holds 37,980 shares. 1 is equivalent to a Strong Buy rating, 3 a hold rating, and 5 a Strong Sell rating. Since January 26, 2018, it had 1 buying transaction, and 0 selling transactions for $43,446 activity. (NYSE: DAL ).

Beyond a few 7-10 upsets, Obama is sticking with the chalk this year. Last year, he selected North Carolina to beat Duke in the men's tournament.

Joining UConn and Mississippi State in the Final Four in Obama's bracket are Notre Dame (29-3) and Louisville (32-2).

Obama's picks aren't too shocking, but he does have five of the eight SEC men's teams winning their first-round games. There has been no indication he will this year, either, though a recent poll shows 38 percent of Americans would like him to do so.
