Patriots Owner: “Trump Was There During the Toughest Time in My Life”


New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft, joined ‘Fox & Friends’ on Friday to discuss his long-time friendship with President Trump.

Two days ahead of his team’s eighth Super Bowl appearance on Sunday, Kraft told Fox News, “[Trump’s] been great to me over these last two decades.”

Kraft discussed how Trump offered him comfort during a very difficult time after his wife, Myra, died of ovarian cancer in July 2011.

“In the toughest time of my life, he was there for me when my beloved wife died,” Kraft said. “I was really depressed and he invited me to things and he looked out after me. Only four or five people did that to that extent.”

Trump had often referenced his ties to revered New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during his presidential campaign. Brady was often asked about his connection to the business mogul during football season before Trump was elected, but he declined to comment.

The friendship has recently come under attack, with Brady receiving pressure from reporters to denounce Trump’s actions since taking office.

When Kraft was asked by reporters about his views on Trump, he stated, “I think that [Trump’s] intent is to do things that can help the business environment in America.” He added, “Which to me, the people who are hurting most are working-class and poor people.”

He endorsed the newly-appointed president saying, “We need a vibrant economy to get jobs going again.”
