Nike online sales soar following the Colin Kaepernick campaign

There fixed it for you. #maga,’ Trump Jr 40 wrote in the caption

In acts of bravery far, far more powerful than Kaepernick sacrificing his career to protest the killings of unarmed young black men by police, they heroically cut the Nike logos off their shorts and burned their trainers. It also will run online across various music, gaming and entertainment platforms, Nike said.

In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, Trump said "I don't like what Nike did".

Kaepernick, formerly the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, was a controversial choice due to his notoriety for kneeling during the national anthem at NFL games.

Evacuations underway as Florence strengthens to category 4 hurricane
He told The Chronicle Sunday that once Florence hits land, destructive winds and vast rainfall flooding may take hold of the area. Forecasters have predicted as much as 20inches of rain in parts of North Carolina , which could cause potentially fatal flooding.


"I think it's a bad message that [Nike] are sending and the objective of them doing it, maybe there's a reason for them doing it". It's a lovely spot.

Due to his involvement in the widespread movement - which gained even more traction after Donald Trump called players who "disrespect" the U.S. flag "sons of bitches" and asked for them to be sacked - Kaepernick has remained a free agent since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. "When corporate does things that are outside of golf and outside of my realm, that's what they do".

The public also reacted to the ad campaign, with some destroying their Nike products.

Tiger Woods says that the Nike commercial narrated by National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick was "something that's special" but added he did not know the company was producing the advert.

President Trump, a critic of protests during the anthem, tweeted Friday, "What was Nike thinking?" But I think as far as sending a message, I think it's a bad message and a message that shouldn't be sent. "I mean, let's put it this way, their name is in the paper and people are talking about it", he said.
