Trump has been heavily critical of the protest.
That line from the ad has drawn ire from groups who see Kaepernick's protest during the national anthem as disrespectful to police officers and military members, despite the fact that members of both groups have said otherwise.
"If people say your dreams are insane, if they laugh at what you think you can do, good". As far as the National Football League is concerned, I just find it hard to watch, and always will, until they stand for the FLAG!'

Still, the ad has worked when it comes to getting people to talk about Nike, with the company seeing a rapid 1,678 percent increase in Twitter engagement. Kaepernick said his stance was against social injustice and racial inequality in the U.S.
It's the ad seen around the world.
Kaepernick tweeted out a two-minute version of the Nike ad on Wednesday.

Skripal was a colonel in Russian military intelligence who was jailed for betraying agents to Britain's MI6 security service. Basu would not comment on whether the Skripals had faced threats before the attack or where they were now located.

Jenkins stood with teammates while Bennett wandered behind them near the Eagles bench and adjusted his equipment. Trump has repeatedly criticized Kaepernick and other players for kneeling during the anthem.
Kaepernick is now in litigation against the NFL, claiming that team owners colluded to keep him out of the league.
"I think that's worse than kneeling, in a certain way". Owners approved a policy requiring players to stand if they are on the sideline during the song, allowing them to stay off the field if they wish.
