(Deseret News) Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is making a move against Nike, announcing on Tuesday that he would order the Arizona Commerce Authority to withdraw incentives for Nike to build a manufacturing plant in the state, according to Fox News.
Ducey released a series of tweets to announce the decision.
Context: The decision comes just one day after The Wall Street Journal reported that Nike planned to ditch its USA-themed sneaker that included the Betsy Ross flag on the heel after former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick spoke out against the shoes. Kaepernick reportedly took issue with the potential connotations of using a slavery-era flag.
