Trump continues crusade against Nike amid 'Just Do It' campaign

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

Trump has repeatedly criticized Kaepernick and other players for kneeling during the anthem. According to AP, the college is staying true to its previous condemnation of the divisive and unpopular anthem protest by announcing that it is removing all uniforms they've purchased from Nike featuring the brand's famous logo.

DONALD TRUMP has slammed Nike for featuring Colin Kaepernick in its Just Do It 30th anniversary campaign.

Last year, the college added a stipulation to competition contracts, saying it would walk away from any game where the opposing team takes a knee, sits or turns its back on the flag or anthem. "If you want to find sacrifice, you're more likely to find that in somebody that wears this nation's uniform, not somebody on some athletic field who's making a lot of money", he said, noting that a retired four-star general who served in Vietnam is the chairman of the board at the school.

The NFL season is set to kick off Thursday night on NBC when the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles host the Atlanta Falcons.

Kaepernick narrates the full spot but first physically appears midway through.

The younger Trump replicated Nike's ad nearly to a T - the words that appeared across Kaepernick's face in the black and white photo were now over President Trump's: "Believe in something".

President Trump weighed in on the campaign on Tuesday, telling The Daily Caller that "I think it's a awful message that they're sending and the objective of them doing it, maybe there's a reason for them doing it".

The campaign includes video ads and billboards, like one displayed atop a Nike store in downtown San Francisco on Wednesday.

The commercial's universal theme is about athletes pushing for bigger dreams. He hasn't played since the end of the 2016 season, and has a lawsuit against the National Football League and its owners, saying that they worked together to keep him from playing.

"If people say your dreams are insane, if they laugh at what you think you can do, good". "If they had asked the NBPA, we would have told them that they are out of line, and that the NBPA supports any person or group who exercises their right to peacefully protest against any form of social injustice, including police brutality and racism".
