Now what does Woods think of Nike's decision to spotlight Kaepernick?

Nike's online sales appear to have surged in the week since it announced Colin Kaepernick as the face of its latest ad campaign. "I don't like what Nike did". " In an interview The Daily Caller a few days back, Trump went in-depth on his feelings about the campaign, saying "But I think it's a awful message that they're sending and the goal of them doing it, maybe there's a reason for them doing it". "I honor the flag".

That's "one of the lowest season openers" in years, Deadline reports, down in comparison to not just the previous season, but each season back through 2014.

Neither visibly protested during the Star-Spangled Banner, despite on previous occasions having knelt or stayed off the field to protest social injustice and racial inequality.

Kaepernick sparked a national movement to protest law enforcement by taking a knee during the national anthem.

Nike's savvy move to make former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick a face of its new "Just Do It" campaign is paying off, literally.

Jenkins stood with teammates while Bennett wandered behind them near the Eagles bench and adjusted his equipment.

Redskins cornerback Josh Norman recently criticized Kaepernick for "ducking" the ongoing furor over the protests by largely remaining silent.

Two weeks ago, Woods was asked about his relationship with President Donald Trump, who has spoken out against the National Football League and the protests.

A source speaking on the condition of anonymity told the AP that Kaepernick watched the ad during an event at Nike's world headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.

The Kaepernick ad sparked some backlash on social media, with critics calling for a Nike boycott and even posting photos and videos of Nike products set on fire.

After his rally in Montana on Thursday, Trump said, "I don't like what Nike did".

Nike has sponsored Kaepernick since 2011 and the advertising campaign marks the 30th anniversary of its "Just Do It" slogan. "If Nike is ashamed of America, we are ashamed of them".

"I stand for anybody that believes in change".
