Trump: Jim Brown Would Be Making ‘Double’ the Money of Everyone Else if He Played in the NFL Now

President Donald Trump is set to meet with rapper Kanye West and NFL legend Jim Brown on Thursday.

In an interview on “Fox & Friends” before the meeting, Trump praised Brown as “the greatest,” adding the former runningback would be making “double” the salary of everyone else in the league if he played now.

“I’ve known [Jim Brown], I’ve respected him truly,” Trump said. “Can you imagine him playing in the NFL today what he’d be making? Double what everyone else is getting. He was the greatest. He came out a long time ago for me when it was much less fashionable, frankly, and now you see the results.”
