New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft had nothing but words of praise and kindness for his friend Donald Trump.

Kraft released a statement to the Boston Globe that says in part that the two of them, “have had a lot of fun together socially, including a very memorable evening in 2005 when I had the privilege of being at his and Melania’s wedding.”

It’s also very clear that the friendship shared between Kraft and leading Republican candidate goes much further than just socializing together. When Kraft’s wife died Trump was there to offer support according to the Patriots owner. (RELATED: Donald Trump Says America Needs More People Like Tom Brady [VIDEO])

“After my wife passed in 2011, he was one of the few people who went out of their way and went above and beyond to assist me through the most difficult time in my life. I will always be grateful to him for his thoughtfulness and his continued friendship,” Kraft said.

The real-estate mogul has been a vocal supporter of the Patriots through the entire “Deflategate” debacle and criticized the way the NFL handled the entire fiasco. (RELATED: Trump Stands Up To The NFL On Deflategate)
