Reuters said, representatives for Nike could not be immediately reached for comment on Trump's tweet.

The video closed with Kaepernick using the new campaign slogan, "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything". Over a black-and-white picture of his face, a caption reads, "Believe in something".

The younger Trump replicated Nike's ad nearly to a T - the words that appeared across Kaepernick's face in the black and white photo were now over President Trump's: "Believe in something".

The player protests have become a divisive topic of debate, and the National Football League and players union still haven't said whether players will be punished this season if they choose to kneel or demonstrate during the anthem.

The NFL has also supported Nike's decision. The line is a reference to Kaepernick's peaceful and silent protest against police brutality and racial inequality that involved him kneeling during the national anthem when he was in the NFL. At a rally in Alabama previous year, Trump said team owners should "get that son of a bitch off the field" if a player knelt in protest of injustice during the anthem.

The No. 21 seed continued his strong season after returning from a wrist injury that forced him to miss the U.S. Open previous year and will play either No. 6 seed Novak Djokovic or unseeded John Millman on Friday.

The statement, which not only throws the support of the NFL's biggest sponsor behind players who wish to kneel, also clearly attacked the president himself, by mentioning that these very protests are what "make America great".

But Hart said the ad belittles those like her son, who made the ultimate sacrifice in fighting for the U.S. "I identify on the right side of politics, but I like their clothes and I will keep wearing them".

But the company has seen social media backlash since the Kaepernick announcement, with the hashtags #BoycottNike and #JustBurnIt trending on Twitter, Bloomberg reports.

Kaepernick narrates the spot but first physically appears midway through.

"I am really, really pleased they're making him the face because it shows people are standing up against rubbish".
