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


Narrated by Colin Kaepernick, "Dream Crazy" provides encouragement to everyone who has insane dreams and goals that may seem unsurmountable.

Donald Trump Jr. has posted a response to Nike's controversial new ad featuring Colin Kaepernick.

James, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump, has shared on social media both an image of Kaepernick from the campaign and the two-minute ad.

The spot highlighting the former 49ers quarterback locked in a grievance with the league aired during the first ad break in the third quarter of the Eagles-Falcons game, which started with no overt demonstrations by players during the national anthem.

Kaepernick recently resigned a multi-million dollar deal with Nike, despite not playing a professional down of football since 2016. "I wonder if they had any idea that it would be this way?"

Kaepernick is unsigned by any NFL team, and is now suing the league for allegedly blackballing him over his protests.

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".

Trump was interviewed by Fox News before a rally Thursday in Billings, Montana.

The 90-second ad showed a variety of athletes, including the Lakers' LeBron James and tennis star Serena Williams, and it ended with the slogan, "It's only insane until you do it".

"I don't like what Nike did". Personally, I do not endorse Kaepernick's method of protest but I absolutely support his right to do so. This was the statement he gave after the game explaining why he was protesting: "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color".

"I think that's worse than kneeling, in a certain way".

The league and players union still haven't resolved whether players will be punished this season if they choose to kneel or demonstrate during the anthem.
