(ABC NEWS) -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was the latest "friend" of President Donald Trump's to speak out against his comments this past weekend about NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem.
Brady, who has said in the past that he's friends with the current commander-in-chief, spoke out Monday, saying "I certainly disagree with what he said. I thought it was just divisive."
Brady followed in the footsteps of another Trump friend, Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft, who released a statement Sunday admitting how "deeply disappointed" he was "by the tone of the comments made by the president."
