Donald Trump has made many enemies during his presidency, and one that really gets under his skin is professional athlete Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick has been pissing Trump off ever since he started kneeling in protest of police brutality during the National Anthem, and he just found a way to do it again.
Kaepernick has just released specialty merchandise that will make Trump blow his lid. Kaepernick posted to his Twitter account a photo of his new jerseys with a dedication stating that the shirt was for “those true to themselves on and off the field. Proudly, unapologetically and against all odds.” Kaepernick also hinted, “This is only the beginning.”

Trump pretty much despises all recognition that Kaepernick gets, so this will really ruin his day. A Nike spokesperson stated that the jersey was a symbol of everything Kaepernick had accomplished in social justice achievements and the worldwide impact he’s made. They said:
We believe Colin Kaepernick is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward. The jersey marks Nike’s continued product collaboration with Colin, and will be available for a limited time on Nike.com and the Nike App.”
Nike’s website also stated the jerseys are “a celebration of those who seek truth in their communities, and those who remain true to themselves.”
To make this even more devastating for the president, these jerseys are sold out even though they just launched – proving that the president’s plans to ruin the NFL player haven’t worked. Despite their $150 price tag, Kaepernick’s merchandise sold out in no time. Meanwhile, the president is still sending out pathetic fundraising emails.
