Patriots owner Bob Kraft and QB Tom Brady have taken to social media to respond to President Trump's comments Friday night in Alabama when he took issue with NFL players not standing for the national anthem.

Both Kraft and Brady have called President Trump a friend in the past but his comments calling for NFL owners to fire players who do not stand appears to have challenged that friendship.
