President Donald Trump's crusade against the NFL continues to rage on.
After Nike named ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick as its new face of the company's "Just Do It" campaign, Trump was not happy at all. The NFL even released a statement showing their support of Kaepernick.
However, the President was having none of it, claiming that this was the reason why the NFL's ratings were down, and why Nike's "getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts." Trump states this is the reason why he can't watch the NFL, and will only do so when the players stand for the National Anthem.
Just like the NFL, whose ratings have gone WAY DOWN, Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts. I wonder if they had any idea that it would be this way? As far as the NFL is concerned, I just find it hard to watch, and always will, until they stand for the FLAG!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 5, 2018
At this point, we all expect a scathing tweet from the president on a daily basis, especially when it regards the NFL.
What Trump may be forgetting is that Nike was not the only clothing brand vying for Kaepernick's services, as Adidas and Puma were in the rear view mirror trying to sign him to a deal.
As for Nike getting "killed with anger and boycotts," their current stock shows they are doing pretty well for themselves.
First, it was Trump vs. the NFL. Now, we can add Trump vs. Nike to the match card.
