Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley weighed in by demanding an apology from Nike, while suggesting Nike resume manufacturing of the Betsy Ross-themed sneakers at its plant in St. Charles, Missouri.Nike should apologize to Americans for denigrating the flag. They should apologize to Missourians who lost loved ones defending the flag. And they should restart production of the Betsy Ross shoe at their facility in St Charles,Further bashing of Nike came by way of the president's son Donald Trump Jr., who less-than-subtly suggested Nike might display Communist-themed footwear, "to be more in line with their views."If the Betsy Ross Flag, the flag of the American Revolution, is too offensive for Nike to commemorate The 4th of July maybe Nike should go with this... seems to be more in line with their views.
Fox News personality Laura Ingraham, no stranger to controversy in her own right, joined Cruz in saying Nike shoes would no longer clutter her family's closets.Among the first to call out Nike, Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducy pulled the plug on a state grant that had been awarded to Nike for planning to build a factory in Goodyear, a suburb of Phoenix. In a nine-tweet tirade, Doug Ducey blasted the company before declaring "Arizona's economy is doing just fine without Nike." The governor added: "We don't need to suck up to companies that consciously denigrate our nation's history."Arizona’s economy is doing just fine without Nike. We don’t need to suck up to companies that consciously denigrate our nation’s history.
The mayor of the city of Goodyear, however, felt differently about the matter. Republican Georgia Lord said the uproar involved an "important topic," but the mayor added that the Phoenix suburb would stick with its job-creating deal with Nike all the same.Of course, on the other end of the political spectrum the reaction was different. Democratic presidential candidate Julían Castro told CBSN he "was glad to see" Nike's decision. He added: " There are a lot of things in our history that are still very painful. The Confederate flag that still flies in some places and is used as a symbol. And I believe we need to move towards an inclusive America that understands that pain."It was 50 years ago that four men crossed the road. Ever since, Beatles fans from across the globe have made the pilgrimage to stride across the most famous crosswalk in rock and roll.
