If there ever was a duo that was getting along pretty great and we could complement its partnership, it is the one between President Donald Trump the New England Patriots. Aside from being ultra close to team owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick, Trump formed a strong bond with quarterback Tom Brady as well.

Even despite this, Kraft, who was on excellent terms with Trump, has now turned his back on him and engaging into the recent NFL incident, where two teams knelt during the national anthem.

“I am deeply disappointed by the tone of the comments made by the President on Friday,” Kraft acknowledged earlier.he said in a statement released by the New England Patriots.

“I am proud to be associated with so many players who make such tremendous contributions in positively impacting our communities. Their efforts, both on and off the field, help bring people together and make our community stronger,” the statement continued. “There is no greater unifier in this country than sports, and unfortunately, nothing more divisive than politics. I think our political leaders could learn a lot from the lessons of teamwork and the importance of working together toward a common goal. Our players are intelligent, thoughtful, and care deeply about our community and I support their right to peacefully affect social change and raise awareness in a manner that they feel is most impactful.”

The Patriots have respected Trump even his first announcement about the presidential run.

Tom Brady, the most famous Patriot of all, was even heavily criticized after a MAGA hat was found in his locker room. It seems this affection has faded away upon Trump’s remarks.

Trump, however, kept his cool during the entire matter, promising it will all be fine.
