adidas Joins Nike In Condemning Trump's Muslim Ban

adidas Joins Nike In Condemning Trump's Muslim Ban

Nike CEO Mark Parker spoke out against Donald Trump's Muslim ban in an official statement saying "Nike believes in a world where everyone celebrates the power of diversity". 

adidas have since released a company-wide email to all employees signed by adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted and director of global brands Eric Liedtke, saying "we at Adidas are proud to bring this positive power of sport to life every day at work and we cherish the diverse, international workforce we have around the globe".

Their statements come in light of President Donald Trump's controversial move to close American borders to refugees and immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries. 

Nike's full statement states they will support all member's of their family and do everything they can to ensure their safety. "Nike stands together against bigotry and any form of discrimination ... We are at our best when we recognise the value of our diverse community."

adidas are also offering support to any employees affected by the order. "We join them in their call for an open and diverse society and culture in the U.S. and around the globe. It goes without saying that our commitment to the U.S. market and our people in America remains unchanged despite this current political climate." 

There's no news on how much difference these public statements will make, but it's becoming apparent many people across the globe are being affected by the Muslim ban.
