New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft praised President Donald Trump as a loyal friend who helped him when he was “down and out.”
Kraft shed light on Trump’s act of kindness, and revealed why he considers the president and First Lady Melania Trump such good friends, when he spoke to the New York Daily News on Monday during Super Bowl Media Day.

“When Myra died, Melania and Donald came up to the funeral in our synagogue, then they came for memorial week to visit with me,” Kraft said, recalling the difficult time in 2011 when his wife died from cancer.
“Then he called me once a week for the whole year, the most depressing year of my life when I was down and out. He called me every week to see how I was doing, invited me to things, tried to lift my spirits. He was one of five or six people that were like that. I remember that,” Kraft said.
Trump gave a shout-out to Kraft at his pre-inauguration dinner in Washington.
A lifelong Democrat, Kraft was one of the largest donors to former President Obama’s presidential campaign. But he was in attendance at Trump’s inauguration in Washington, D.C. because their friendship has a personal bond that is stronger than his politics.
