LeBron James Reacts To Nike Stock Hitting All-Time High

From the heart The 46-year-old former football player said he thinks he would have and probably also would been proactive to further organize the movement Why Michael Strahan Supports Colin Kaepernick and NFL Kneeling Even Though His Father Is a Military Veteran

Nike is a business, and their decision to make Colin Kaepernick the star of their new ad campaign wasn't just a political move, it was a business move. President Donald Trump, who has frequently criticized the anthem protests, denounced Nike's campaign for sending a "terrible message".

Nike first ran its Kaepernick ad on a Monday and Edison Trends said that the companies sales surged 31 percent from Sunday through Tuesday of that same week.

Of those that said that they wouldn't wear Nike again, 5 percent said they tore the Nike swooshes off their clothing, 7 percent said they got rid of their Nike items and 12 percent said they were telling their friends to take similar action. The 30-year-old quarterback, who has not played since the end of that season, is now suing the NFL's 32 owners, alleging they conspired to keep him off the field.

Nike faced backlash over its deal with Kaepernick.

Trump signs order to impose sanctions for US election meddling
National security adviser John Bolton said a new White House order on election security isn't aimed at any particular country. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Chris Van Hollen (D., Md.) criticized the measure for not going far enough.


The stock value increased to $83.51 in midday trading Friday. Nike shares dropped the day after they announced the campaign but have recovered over the last week.

A new poll may provide an answer.

Twenty-nine percent of young men - and 19 percent of the public overall - said they intend to buy even more Nike products than before, according to Harris. That figure is down to 39 percent now. "But I think there are much better ways to bring about change than seemingly disrespecting the flag or the anthem that represents the very freedoms that have made this nation the best on earth". The then-49ers back-up QB elaborated on his accusations a few days later. The apparel company's willingness to "push the status quo", the quality of its products and its ability to inspire people are reasons why the brand draws consumers, said Jesse Purewal, an associate partner in the firm. Kaepernick was joined by several other players in subsequent games. Despite pressure by activists and media personalities to pressure National Football League teams to pick him up, Kaepernick found himself unemployed. "There seems to be a fracture there between player and ownership, and they need to get that together in order to get the message out there in the right way, and not letting the message become hijacked and turned into something that it was never meant to be".
