President Trump is taking another swipe at Nike. Trump tweeted today, "What was Nike thinking?" The sports apparel giant is featuring former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in its latest ad campaign. Kaepernick was the first player to take a knee during the national anthem at NFL games, calling attention to racism and police brutality. Trump has called it disrespectful to the American flag and military. In an interview with Fox News last night, Trump said it is inappropriate for Nike to feature Kaepernick in an ad campaign.
