Johnson, whose active ownership of the team is on hold as he serves as the U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, seems to have been impacted in a profound way by Trump.

“I have two little boys and we’re raising them just like Donald Trump,” Johnson said to the camera while filming a documentary on the United States’ new embassy in England.

Sportswriter Jane McManus posted the remarks on Twitter, including Johnson’s one caveat: “Not the hair.”

The great-grandson of Johnson & Johnson founder Robert Wood Johnson I, the 71-year-old Johnson served as vice chairman of Trump’s victory committee and hosted big-ticket fundraisers for Trump’s campaign, according to

Johnson’s brother, Christopher, has been managing the franchise in his absence since Trump appointed him to the ambassador position last year.

And while it’s likely that Johnsons’ kids won’t be kneeling on the sidelines during the national anthem at any upcoming games, his brother seems to have a different view.

Following  a policy by NFL owners requiring players to stand during the national anthem or stay off the field, Christopher Johnson announced he would pay any fines players incurred if they chose to protest.
