In his first tweet on Monday morning, President Donald Trump thanked Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Brown for his “wonderful words and support,” after Brown said he was “pulling” for President Trump last week.

"Thank you to the great @JimBrownNFL32, perhaps the greatest running back of all time, for your wonderful words and support. Since our meeting in New York, African-American UNEMPLOYMENT has reached the LOWEST LEVEL IN HISTORY. You get it!” Trump tweeted.

Last week, Brown told “JT The Brick Show” on Fox Sports Radio, “I find myself really pulling for the president.”

"I should be criticizing Trump on every level because he does certain things that call for criticism," Brown said. ”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.”
