Nike CEO slams Trump's Muslim immigrant ban

Ever since Donald Trump made his executive order banning immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries on January 27, many artists, celebrities, and citizens have expressed their outrage towards the Islamophobic and unconstitutional ban.

The latest to join the growing number of voices against the ban is sportswear brand and retail giant Nike. In a letter written by the brand's president and CEO Mark Parker, the chairman called upon the core values of the brand as ammo and reassurance against the act.

"Nike stands together against bigotry and any form of discrimination," Parker writes. "Now more than ever, let’s stand up for our values and remain open and inclusive as a brand and as a company."

Parker also cites four-time Olympic gold medalist Sir Mo Farah as an example of an individual at risk of not being able to enter the United States due to his Somalian background and British citizenship. Mo “has dedicated his life to competing for his adopted country," the statement reads. "And yet, Mo fears that he may not be allowed to return from his training camp in Ethiopia to see his wife and children in Portland.”
