This week, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick renegotiated a multiyear agreement with Nike to make him one of the faces of the company's 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign. Trump has been heavily critical of the protest.

Morning Consult did find 39 percent of those surveyed said they were "absolutely certain or very likely to buy Nike products" after the release of the ads, which is down 10 percent from before. "I don't think it was appropriate what they did", he said. "I honor our national anthem, and most of the people in our country feel the same way".

James, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump, has shared on social media both an image of Kaepernick from the campaign and the two-minute ad.

During the event, Kaepernick spoke to Nike employees.

Kaepernick tweeted out a two-minute version of the Nike ad on Wednesday. Jenkins stood with teammates while Bennett wandered behind them near the Eagles bench and adjusted his equipment.

"You are going back ... that shows you just have no respect for the anthem or the flag", he said.

"The Fraternal Order of Police has been called upon to boycott Nike for capitalizing on this former professional football player because he attracts controversy".

No Falcons players were absent from the sideline and none has protested in the recent past.

"I think that's worse than kneeling, in a certain way".

The ad, voiced by Kaepernick features him along with other athletes such as New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

With that said, however, the decision did anger a large portion of Americans.

The league and players union still haven't resolved whether players will be punished this season if they choose to kneel or demonstrate during the anthem.
