Tom Brady and Bill Bellicheck have never made it a secret they have a friendly relationship with Donald Trump. After all, it became headline news when Tom Brady was photographed with a “Make America Great Again” hat in his locker. Now Patriots owner Robert Kraft is speaking out about how Donald Trump was there for him in his time of need.
Kraft discussed his wife’s death in 2011. Explaining how the President was there for him. He spoke to Brian Kilmeade of Fox & Friends saying,
“In the toughest time in my life, he was there for me. He came to the funeral with Melania. He’d visit me at my home. … He called me once a week for a year. ‘How are you doing?’ I was really depressed, and he invited me to things, and he looked out after me.”
He noted that few others were there for him as much. While the two never did business with one another they have been friends for over two decades. Kraft made his fortune in the paper and packaging business. Trump had previously boasted of their support.
Very rarely does he open up with his soft side. But it appears he did show it to Robert Kraft. When discussing the topic of abortion at the Republican primary debate he said,
“What happened is friends of mine, years ago, were going to have a child, and it was going to be aborted And it wasn’t aborted. And that child today is a total superstar, a great, great child. And I saw that.”

Even Ivanka Trump discussed the side of her father nobody gets to see. At the Republican National Convention she shared the following about her father,
“Over the years, on too many occasions to count, I saw my father tear stories out of the newspaper about people whom he had never met, who were facing some injustice or hardship, He’d write a note to his assistant, in a signature black felt tip pen, and request that the person be found and invited to Trump Tower to meet with him. He would talk to them and then draw upon his extensive network to find them a job or get them a break.”
Kraft isn’t the only person the President has been for in their time of need. Showing us the type of person who is running this country.
