President Trump: Nike’s Colin Kaepernick ad sends ‘terrible message’

President Trump responded to a Nike ad campaign that features Colin Kaepernick, saying the company is sending a “terrible message” by featuring the free agent quarterback.

In an interview Tuesday with The Daily Caller, Trump said “there’s no reason” for Nike to use Kaepernick in its marketing campaign.

“But 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,” Trump told The Daily Caller. “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.”

The ad was unveiled Monday as Nike, the NFL’s official apparel sponsor, celebrates the 30th anniversary of its “Just Do It” campaign.

“Believe in something,” the advertisement reads in white letters in front of a black-and-white photo of Kaepernick. “Even if it means sacrificing everything.”
