Donald Trump Blasts Nike & Kaepernick … ‘It’s a Terrible Message!!!’
9/4/2018 2:37 PM PDT
The Prez — who’s vehemently against NFL players who kneel during the National Anthem — tells the Daily Caller he disagrees with Nike’s endorsement. He says … “I think it’s a terrible message that they’re sending and the purpose of them doing it, maybe there’s a reason for them doing it … but I think as far as sending a message, I think it’s a terrible message and a message that shouldn’t be sent. There’s no reason for it.”
It’s interesting, though … Trump admits Nike is a tenant in one of his NYC buildings, and says it pays him a lot of rent for the NikeTown location — but adds, the company has the right to align itself with whomever it wants.
He adds … “It is what this country is all about, that 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.”
As we’ve reported, Kaepernick’s ad, part of Nike’s 30th anniversary of its “Just Do It” campaign — has sparked major backlash … including from the National Association of Police Organizations, which is calling for a Nike boycott.
As you’ll recall … Trump made headlines in September 2017 after saying NFL owners should fire players who kneel for the anthem, referring to them as “sons of bitches.”
A year later … the war rages on.
