'It's a terrible message': Trump lashes out at Nike for their controversial new Colin Kaepernick 'Just Do It' ad - before saying they are a 'tenant of mine' who pay 'a lot of rent'

Trump lashes out at Nike for controversial new Colin Kaepernick ad

Trump weighed in on Kaepernick becoming the face of Nike's Just Do It 30th anniversary campaign, after spending months going after kneeling NFL player protests. 'I think it's a terrible message and a message that shouldn't be sent. There's no reason for it,' Trump told the DailyCaller in an interview published Tuesday afternoon, while Washington was poring over new details in Bob Woodward's explosive book about chaos and insults inside the Trump White House. Trump even invoked his real estate empire, which is held in a trust and is technically being run by his two adult sons Eric and Don Jr. 'I think it's a terrible message. Nike is a tenant of mine. They pay a lot of rent,' Trump told the conservative-leaning publication. Nike has a huge store next to Trump Tower, although it is preparing to move its flagship in 2019. It is the largest Trump Organization tenant occupying a single space. He said there was 'no reason' for the company to send the message. 'But I think as far as sending a message, I think it's a terrible message and a message that shouldn't be sent. There's no reason for it,' Trump said. The president has backed a policy brought in by NFL team owners that means player protests will be confined to locker rooms.

Just hours after Colin Kaepernick was announced as the face of Nike's new Just Do It campaign, people began to protest.

Nike customers upset at the decision took to Twitter and shared videos of them destroying their apparel.

Many clips showed people setting their sneakers and clothes on fires while others cut their socks.

John Rich, one half of the country band Big & Rich, said their soundman, a former Marine, had cut off the famous swoosh logo from his socks.
