The US President’s son Donald trump Jr. suggested the brand Nike sportswear use the hammer and sickle in the design of sneakers. About this he wrote on his Twitter account.

“If the revolutionary Betsy Ross flag too offensive in order to commemorate the 4th of July, then, maybe Nike should look to this… it Seems more in line with their views,” quipped trump and made to post a photo of a red Shoe with a stylized image of the Soviet symbol sickle instead of the hammer crosses over the signature swasam brand.

Earlier in July, Nike had to recall a batch of shoes Air Max 1 Quick Strike, released for independence Day USA, due to disturbances of the public. Customers do not like the design of the new model: they considered it a reference to the days of slavery in the country. On the heel of each Shoe was a picture of an old US flag with 13 stars — Betsy Ross flag instead of the modern flag with 50 stars.

As a result, the brand has listened to the views of customers and 2 July withdrew sneakers.
