President Donald Trump said Friday he was surprised by misdemeanor charges against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft for solicitation of prostitution.
“Well, it’s very sad, I was very surprised to see it,” Trump said when asked about the news by reporters at the White House.
A spokesperson for Kraft denied that the Patriot’s owner participated in any illegal activity, despite police claiming to have videos of his activity.
“He’s proclaimed his innocence totally, but I was very surprised to see it,” Trump said.
Kraft, a personal friend of Trump, is already making plans to travel to the White House with the Patriots for recognition for winning another Super Bowl.
