The latest major business to show support for Donald Trump is being forced to answer questions from both the public and its most recognizable ambassador, Steph Curry.
Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank recently went on record saying that he felt President Trump was an “asset” for the United States.
“I think he’s highly passionate,” the executive said Tuesday. “To have such a pro-business President is something that is a real asset for the country. People can really grab that opportunity.
When asked if he shared the opinion by The Mercury News, Steph Curry was quick to answer.
“I agree with the description, if you remove the ‘et’ from asset,” he said.
While Curry makes his opinions on Trump loud and clear, he went on to explain that, after some investigation, his relationship with the sportswear company remains the same.
“I spent all day yesterday on the phone,” Curry said, “with countless people at Under Armour, countless people in Kevin Plank’s camp, my team, trying to understand what was going on and where everybody stood on the issue. Based off the release that KP sent out this morning, and what he told me last night, that’s the Under Armour that I know. That’s the brand I know he’s built and one that, as of Wednesday afternoon, is something that I’m standing on.”
The statement he’s referring to was released by Under Armour on Wednesday in an attempt to explain that Plank was speaking simply from a business perspective, and not one that reflected the personal and political views of himself or the company.
But with a president as far right as Trump, the lines between politics and practically everything else suddenly feel blurred.
Some customers and supporters of Under Armour have already announced that they plan to boycott the business offering praise to the President.
