Despite being team Trump, Kraft broke ranks with the president during discussions about the #TakeAKnee protests (which the president very loudly criticized), acting as a mediator between National Football League players and owners.

Kraft told reporters outside the prison that Meek is a "great guy" who "shouldn't be here", also adding that the entertainer is an "amazing young man".

The "All Eyes on You" rapper is now serving a two-to-four year sentence for probation violations.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney visited rapper Meek Mill in prison. I saw (Gronkowski recently at Gillette Stadium). "It makes it clear to me we have to do something with criminal justice reform". "(He) shouldn't be here", Kraft said.

Kraft's visit with the rapper, while heartening, is also puzzling given his support of President Trump -whose policies and ideas would seem to do more harm to people in Meek Mill's position than good. Rubin invited Mayor Kenney, and the visit with Meek lasted about an hour. "They have responsibilities to take care of children, child in this case, and be better off doing that if he went to work", Kenney said.
