‘Just stand’: Army vet launches t-shirts with ‘patriotic’ message for Kaepernick & Nike

It's a handsome spot. It also will run online across various music, gaming and entertainment platforms, Nike said.

On Monday, Nike released a promotional image for their new Kaepernick-inspired campaign which featured a black and white portrait of the player superimposed with the slogan "Believe in something".

At a rally in Montana last week, Trump said he didn't think Nike's endorsement deal with Kaepernick was appropriate. "When corporate does things that are outside of golf and outside of my realm, that's what they do".

"I love that they took these big powerful influential people and they also took small town people like me, just like real live people, who got to live out their dreams and put them altogether because it is real life", Woollcott told WXYZ.

The controversial campaign has fired up the divisive debate between those supporting the NFL athletes who protested by kneeling during the national debate, and those who say its an insult to the country and the flag. "It's a attractive spot and pretty powerful people (are) in the spot". "We just want to find out what the company is trying to achieve. As an athlete of theirs, it's not my job to agree or disagree with whatever they do".

Trump signs order permitting sanctions for foreign election meddling
The Treasury and State departments also would be advised of the election attack and would be able to impose additional sanctions. Those backing the legislation say that under the bill, a nation would know exactly what it would face if caught.

Hundreds Arrested in Multiday Protests of Brett Kavanaugh
Kavanaugh, like previous nominees, declined to answer hypothetical questions that might come before him as a justice. The document battle stemmed from Kavanaugh's unusually long paper trail following his years in the Bush White House.

Trump, who has repeatedly criticized Kaepernick and other National Football League players for the kneeling protests, slammed Nike on Friday, tweeting: 'What was Nike thinking?'

Serena Williams, who will play her in ninth U.S. Open final, said last week at the tournament that she was proud of Kaepernick, who was at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York, to watch Williams play. But I think as far as sending a message, I think it's a awful message and a message that shouldn't be sent.

Kaepernick, who triggered a political firestorm after kneeling during the USA national anthem in 2016 to protest racial injustice, has not played in the NFL since early a year ago.

Brooks Koepka, the PGA Championship victor and two-time U.S. Open champ, said the biggest victor might be the publicity sparked for Nike.
