Nike CEO Mark Parker Slams Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban
In just one short week, Donald Trump has alienated more people than he’s trying to prevent from entering the United States. As protests continue to grow with every passing discriminatory executive order signed by Cheeto Jesus, celebrities and company CEO’s have slammed Trump for his obvious xenophobia.
Nike CEO Mark Parker is the latest to criticize the methods of the most loathed leader of the free world.
In a statement issued to his employees, the Nike chairman reminded everyone that “Nike stands together against bigotry and any form of discrimination,” and “Now, more than ever, let’s stand up for our values and remain open and inclusive as a brand and as a company.”
The declaration also referenced Somali born four-time Olympic gold medalist, Sir Mo Farah, who fears that he may not be able to return from his training camp in Ethiopia to see his wife and children who live in Portland.
“What Mo will always have – what the entire Nike family can always count on – is the support of this company.”
If any good has come out of Trump’s racial and gender war of a presidency it’s that it’s united more people than it’s divided.
