It’s nothing new that Kraft and Trump have a pretty tight relationship. The President was asked about the allegations made against Kraft. “Well it’s very sad, I was very surprised to see it,” he said.

Kraft, 77, was one of 25 men charged after an investigation by police in Jupiter into the Orchids of Asia Day Spa. According to police chief Daniel Kerr, the Jupiter Police Departement has video evidence of all the men charged.

Kraft denied through a spokesperson that he engaged in any illegal activity; the spokesperson added that because this is a judicial matter, there won’t be further comments.

The Patriots are one of the most hated teams in American sports, fresh off another Super Bowl win, and Kraft has a long friendship with President Trump, making this a major news story for sports fans and political junkies alike.
