New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady said Monday morning that he doesn’t agree with President Trump’s comments critical of NFL players who refuse to stand during the national anthem.
“Yeah, I certainly disagree with what he said. I thought it was just divisive,” Brady said during a radio interview with a Boston sports talk radio show.
“Like I said, I just want to support my teammates.”
Brady, who calls Trump a friend, said he is never in a position to say whether something is right or wrong.
“I do believe in what I believe in. I believe in bringing people together and respect and love and trust,” he said. “Those are the values that my parents instilled in me. That is how I try and live every day.”
He added that Football brings people from different all across the nation together.
“The one thing about football is it brings so many guys together — guys you would never have the opportunity to be around,” Brady said.
“Whether it was in college, and all the way into the pros. We’re all different, we’re all unique. That is what makes us all special.”
