Kaepernick is face of controversial Nike ad as Trump criticizes sportswear company

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

"You have to think beyond what you see around you", said Kaepernick, who hasn't spoken to the media publicly since opting out of his contract with San Francisco and becoming a free agent in 2017.

Nate Boyer, the Green Beret who encouraged Colin Kaepernick's kneeling protest, speaks out about the controversial Nike campaign.

Kaepernick made national headlines for starting a wave of protests among NFL players of police brutality, racial inequality and other social issues.

Kaepernick reportedly watched the premiere of the ad from Nike's headquarters.

President Trump issued a four-word reply Saturday after several speakers at weekend funerals for singer Aretha Franklin and U.S. But they spoke of reconciling with him during personal moments afterward, and, as Bush said , "the rivalry melted away".

"Me personally, I really want to get this conversation to move away from the anthem", Jenkins said in an article published Wednesday by the Washington Post.

No team has signed the 30-year-old since he became a free agent following that season, and he is suing the National Football League, claiming owners have colluded against him because of his activism.

Mr. Kaepernick led the national-anthem protests at NFL games and has said he would not "show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color".

Nike this week unveiled an endorsement deal with Kaepernick, who also narrates a new "Just Do It" ad.

Coca-Cola does already have over 500 brands in its stable including Fanta, innocent smoothies and Powerade sports drinks. Doing so, Whitbread said, would "provide headroom" to expand Premier Inn in Britain and Germany.

"What was Nike thinking?" the president wondered on Twitter shortly before 7 a.m.

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

Jerry C. Davis, the president of College of the Ozarks in Missouri, said on "Fox & Friends" Friday that Nike is "exploiting" the issue of national anthem protests by NFL players, including Kaepernick, in order to make money.

It's the ad seen around the world. "But I think as far as sending a message, I think it's a awful message and a message that shouldn't be sent". Owners approved a policy requiring players to stand if they are on the sideline during the song, allowing them to stay off the field if they wish.
