It sure is funny how the right howls when it's pointed out that they're acting like authoritarians and then they pull stunts like this.

Nike I am sure is thanking Trump silently for their sales boost, probably a small windfall.

Nike's Kaepernick ad spurs spike in sold-out items

Quote:
(Reuters) - Nike Inc (NKE.N) has sold out 61 percent more merchandise since the controversial ad campaign featuring former NFL player Colin Kaepernick appeared earlier this month, according to data on the company’s online sales from Thomson Reuters Proprietary Research.
Quote:
President Donald Trump also tweeted, without providing evidence, that “Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts”.

But the research by Thomson Reuters, conducted in collaboration with StyleSage Co, showed here the world's largest sportswear maker sold out far more items between Sept. 3 and Sept. 13 than in the 10-day period before the ad came out.

^^^^^^ Ya think Fox "News" will be reporting this to Donny's idiot base? Nike obviously can read the national mood a lot better than Donny and his angry old racist white male supporters..

^^Can you imagine Trump running a company like Nike? I am certain that his tribe thinks he can and will excel at it.
