Robert Kraft Spotted Entering Trump Tower in New York City
In his final days as a candidate, Donald Trump touted the support for Patriots coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady at a rally in New Hampshire. Now president-elect, the former reality TV star was paid a visit by team owner Bob Kraft.
The Brookline native was spotted outside Trump Tower in New York City Wednesday afternoon, wearing his signature blazer and Nike kicks. According to the press pool report, Kraft was accompanied by former Goldman Sachs banker Steven Mnuchin, who has been rumored to be a favorite for Treasury Secretary in the Trump administration.

Kraft has curiously tossed political donations toward both sides of the aisle. He contributed $25,000 to both Barack Obama and John McCain in 2008. He donated $57,900 to Obama in 2012, then gave $1,000 to Marco Rubio’s Senate campaign in 2014. The same year, he gave Ed Markey $3,600.
As noted by Boston magazine alum Jason Schwartz, Kraft was a guest at Rush Limbaugh’s 2010 wedding in Palm Beach, though he clarified it was only to support his friend Elton John.
