In anticipation of his team's appearance in the Super Bowl, New England Patriots owner joined "Fox & Friends" Friday to discuss his 20-year friendship with President Donald Trump.

"He's been great to me over those last two decades," said Kraft, whose team is set to make its eighth Super Bowl appearance Sunday.

Kraft's wife, Myra, died from ovarian cancer in July 2011. He said Trump was there for support when he needed it most.

"In the toughest time in my life, he was there for me when my beloved wife died five and half years ago. He came to the funeral with Melania. He visited me at my home memorial. He called me once a week for a year," Kraft said.

Kraft said Trump will play an integral role in creating a vibrant economy to create jobs in the country.

"I think his intent is to do things that can help the business environment in America," Kraft said.
