Brown has taken heat for not vilifying Trump in the past. He famously met with him at Trump tower following the election to which he was strongly criticised from the left.
Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Brown isn't afraid to root for President Donald Trump despite criticism from many other prominent athletes.
"I should be criticizing Trump on every level because he does certain things that call for criticism," he said Tuesday on the JT The Brick Show on Fox Sports Radio (h/t TMZ Sports). "But when I look at television I see all these announcers become experts and they're pointing the fingers and they're not doing a doggone thing but pointing their fingers, I find myself really pulling for the president."
The legendary running back has never been afraid to speak his mind on political issues but knows this time his thoughts could get him in trouble.
"Now, that would make me very unpopular in the black community, very unpopular with a lot of Americans," he added, "...but I think that there are certain good things that are coming out of this presidency because we've never seen anything like it."
