Nike is ‘getting killed’ for Colin Kaepernickad, says president Trump

Nike memes

The action has irked President Trump, who weighed in on the Nike campaign in a series of tweets this week.

No Falcons players were absent from the sideline and none has protested in the recent past. Narrated by Kaepernick, the ad includes appearances by other high-profile African-American athletes Odell Beckham Jr., LeBron James and Serena Williams.

Thirteen percent of those surveyed said they were less likely to purchase from Nike after viewing Kaepernick's first ad.

President Trump, who has repeatedly slammed the players' protests, also weighed in, saying in an interview with The Daily Caller that the deal with Kaepernick sends "a awful message".

"Just like the National Football League, whose ratings have gone WAY DOWN, Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts".

"Montana crowd rained down boos when Fox host Pete Segseth mentioned the NFL". Trump wrote early this morning on Twitter.

Sources say Kaepernick watched the ad's premiere from Nike headquarters in Oregon.

Nike's stock did, in fact, take a hit following the release of the first Kaepernick ad. "Stay that way, because what nonbelievers fail to understand is that calling a dream insane is not an insult, it's a compliment".

"He's done a lot for the African American community, and it's cost him a lot".

"I mean, let's put it this way, their name is in the paper and people are talking about it", he said.

"Student athletes will no longer wear the brand in response to the company's new ad campaign", the private, Christian college said in a statement Wednesday.

Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.

Wilson, who has a contract with Nike, also applauded the company's deal with Kaepernick. The latest estimates put the value of the media exposure from the campaign at more than $163 million, according to Apex Marketing Group - nearly four times the $43 million tallied in the first 24 hours since the ad debuted.

The Fraternal Order of Police, who endorsed President Donald Trump's campaign, describes the ad as "hateful" towards police officers.

Davis said he believes Americans are growing exhausted of divisiveness and that Nike is "stirring controversy". An arbitrator recently said his case can move forward.
