Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Responds To Trump: “I’m Deeply Disappointed”

6

NFL Patriots owner Rob Kraft issued a statement today saying he’s ‘deeply disappointed’ with POTUS comments.

The President recently tweeted his thoughts on NFL players sitting for the national anthem, calling on team owners to step up and penalize players who ‘disrespect’ the American flag.

The statement by Kraft reads: “I am deeply disappointed by the tone of the comments made by the President on Friday. 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. 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.”

Kraft is a close friend of POTUS and is and is also a big supporter of Israel. The Kraft stadium in Yerushalayim was donated by him and he sponsors the Israel  Football League as well.

  1. On one hand it is sad that this is what we are reading about during this holy and important week. On the other hand, it just reaffirms for us that even the Goldena Medina of America is imploding and we are all getting closer to the realization that there is no place to go, no place to run, no place to turn other then to Aveinu Shebashomayim.

    Mr. Kraft, a wonderful Jew who has a love for Yidden and a love for Eretz Yisroel, and also an avid supporter of our President, shows his brilliance once again by putting out a statement that pleases everyone. The supporters of our president will point to the fact that Mr. Kraft doesn’t say anything about what the President said only shows disappointment to the “tone” used. The anti Trump camp will point to the fact that EVEN Mr. Kraft is against President Trump on this. A Yiddisha Kup he has LOL.

  2. I’m disturbed by Mr kraft for joining the anti American forces called the progressive militant left, who happen Wo work for him instead of the proud patriotic side. Sad!

  3. Kraft, like Bl$$mberg, Trump, Buffet, Gates, etc… will do and say whatever they have to, to increase THEIR bottom line. These millionaires & billionaires have no morals other than M O N E Y! Cash is their god. They worship it. Nothing else matters.
