Is Trump Scared of Joining Nike Boycott? Yes He is ‘Cause ‘They Pay A Lot of Rent’

*Welp, if you’re one of those tRumpers that expected the orange a-hole in the White House to go in on Nike and join the boycott against the company for putting Colin Kaepernick front and center of it’s “Just Do It” 30th anniversary campaing, guess what, it ain’t happening.

Why is that you ask?  Well, like everything else with Trump, it’s all about the money.  Read on for more via Newsweek.

Nike unveiled Colin Kaepernick as one of the faces of its 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign, prompting harsh criticism from a number of political commentators and Nike customers, who have accused the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback of showing disrespect to the flag when he chose to kneel during the national anthem in 2016.

While Trump criticized the campaign, he also said the company was one of his main tenants. “I think it’s a terrible message and a message that shouldn’t be sent,” he told The Daily Caller when asked about the campaign. “There’s no reason for it.” But, the president explained, Nike was a tenant of his, and “they pay a lot of rent.” 

Nike’s flagship store was located on a site owned by Trump next to Trump Tower in New York City. But the location has since closed, and in 2017 Nike, which is based in Oregon, announced it would open a new shop on Fifth Avenue by the end of this year.
