New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said he disagreed with President Donald Trump’s comments attacking NFL players who protest during the national anthem.

Brady, who stood and locked arms with another teammate during the playing of the anthem before Sunday’s game with the Houston Texans, made his comments Monday in an interview on WEEI radio’s "Kirk & Callahan" show.

"Yeah, I certainly disagree with what (Trump) said," Brady revealed. "I thought it was just divisive.  Like I said, I just want to support my teammates. I am never one to say, 'Oh, that is wrong. That is right.' I do believe in what I believe in. I believe in bringing people together and respect and love and trust. Those are the values that my parents instilled in me. That is how I try and live every day.

"I have been blessed to be in locker rooms with guys all over the United States over the course of my career. Some of my great friends are from Florida, Virginia, New York, Montana, Colorado, Texas. The one thing about football is it brings so many guys together — guys you would never have the opportunity to be around. Whether it was in college, and all the way into the pros. We’re all different, we’re all unique. That is what makes us all special."

And he said: "Hopefully it brings everyone together. I think that is what unity and love — like I said after the game, those are the things that concern me."

During the election campaign, Trump announced that Brady had called him in support of his presidential bid, The Washington Post noted.

Trump had told a crowd that Brady said: "Donald, I support you, you’re my friend, and I voted for you."

And a day before his inauguration in January, Trump disclosed Brady had called to congratulate him on his election victory, the Post reported.
