President Trump just gave New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft the middle finger on national television, after New England Patriots owner released a statement that went against President Donald Trump’s comments about NFL players and their right to kneel during the national anthem.
A reporter asked the president what he made of his friend, Kraft, releasing a statement that was clearly anti-Trump. Trump said he thinks Kraft’s ideas are disrespectful to the country, then wiped his brow with his middle finger.

New England Patriots owner released a statement Sunday saying he was “deeply disappointed” by the tone of Trump’s comments earlier this week. He disagree with Trump’s rhetoric on owners should fire the “sons of bitches” who kneel in protest, and that fans should boycott the NFL if players keep doing it.
Trump also said he hadn’t been tuning in to the actual games Sunday, even though he was tweeting about NFL-National Anthem related matters all day.
