President Trump Questions Nike on Twitter for Colin Kaepernick Commercial

Colin Kaepernick

The school, a private Christian college, said it was canceling the contract over Nike featuring former National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick in its 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign. "Over time, for Nike, we think the power of the messaging from this new broader campaign is apt to overshadow any potential backlash, near term, in our view", Nagel wrote.

Taya Kyle, the wife of late Navy SEAL and sniper Chris Kyle, was one of those people who were upset at Nike's selection, so she tore into them and the former quarterback on Tuesday over what it actually means to make a sacrifice.

Falwell said they are exploring the situation and that if Nike believes law enforcement is unfair and biased, they will look around - but will honor any contract that is in tact.

"Stay that way", Kaepernick said in his voice-over, before appearing on-screen toward the end of the ad.

Kaepernick grabbed national headlines when he kneeled during the National Anthem during the 2016 preseason in protest of police brutality and social injustice.

"Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything" read the Nike ad, which celebrates the 30th anniversary of its "Just Do It" campaign.

Nike's favorability was slashed in half, plunging from +69 favorable impression among consumers before the Kaepernick announcement to only +35 favorable after the announcement.

The United States has emerged as India's second largest arms supplier, closing $15 billion worth of deals in the past decade. Washington and New Delhi share concerns over Pakistan-based anti-Western and anti-Indian Islamist militant groups.

Colin Kaepernick was seen in the Portland area on Thursday afternoon.

Players who have taken part int he kneeling protests say their message has been misconstrued into something against the American flag or the military.

Nike's ad campaign has galvanized supporters and critics alike on social media.

Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick, including a signature shoe, and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity, the person said.

Mason also has a personal website in which he expresses his belief in the power of community policing, calling it the most effective form of policing.

Several Eagles players have staged demonstrations during the anthem over the past two seasons, and after some members of the team said they would skip the traditional champions' visit to the White House, Trump made a point of disinviting the entire organization in June.

National Basketball Association players in recent years have worn shoes with messages of "R.I.P. Trayvon Martin" and "Sideline Racism" and images of Ebenezer Baptist Church, where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. preached.
