Here’s what Trump REALLY thinks about Nike
Okay, his reaction wasn’t that bad… here’s what the president had to say, “I think it’s a terrible message and a message that shouldn’t be sent. There’s no reason for it.” However, Trump also acknowledged that it was Nike’s choice to make. Speaking of free choice, Nike also chooses to be a tenant at Trump properties.
A far cry from his former opposition… where Donald Trump suggested that NFL players lose their job for taking a knee during the national anthem. Trump went on to acknowledge, “In another way, it is what this country is all about, you have certain freedoms to do things that other people think you shouldn’t do, but I personally am on a different side of it.”
Ready for controversy… is Nike, which became very apparent once news broke of the company backing Kaepernick. Apart from Trump, the hashtag ‘#NikeBoycott’ was trending on Twitter and, predictably, some customers even destroyed their Nike products. Nike shares are up close to 30% this year even after the Kaepernick backlash. And hopefully, we can put this story to be now…
