Trump says he thinks Nike's Colin Kaepernick deal is inappropriate

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

Kaepernick tweeted the video with the caption, "Believe in something".

The Nike advert 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. It features young athletes who compete amid various challenges, touching on issues of gender, disabilities and weight loss, among others.

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

Don't ask if your dreams are insane. "Ask if they are insane enough".

"You are going back ... that shows you just have no respect for the anthem or the flag", he said.

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

"Mr. Kaepernick is known, not as a successful athlete, but as a shallow dilettante seeking to gain notoriety by disrespecting the flag for which so many Americans have fought and died", NAPO president, Michael McHale, wrote to Nike CEO, Mark Parker. He scored a legal victory last week in his grievance against the National Football League and its 32 teams when an arbitrator allowed his case to continue to trial.

He then rallied past Taylor Fritz 3-6 6-3 7-6 6-4 before beating 2017 finalist Kevin Anderson in straight sets 7-5 6-2 7-6. Dominic Thiem went on long into the small hours, with Nadal eventually prevailing in a pulsating deciding-set tiebreak .

The deal spurred debate among fans, with some urging a boycott of the Beaverton, Oregon-based company and others burning their Nike clothing.

"I stand for anybody that believes in change".

"So when Nike did this, it's their right I have nothing against it", said Feed Our Vets founder Rich Synek.

Nike wants all the smoke from the NFL.

The US president claimed the anger in some quarters at the ad proved the sportswear giant had got it horribly wrong.

And while the #boycottnike hashtag has received about 204,000 Twitter engagements since Monday, the #justdoit hashtag has more than five times the engagements during the same time frame - indicating that while the ad has drawn Nike more scorn, it's also galvanized its supporters.
