Obama visiting Nike headquarters next week Hopefully they give him some new sneakers

President Barack Obama is making a trip to Nike's world headquarters in Beaverton, Ore. next week. Obama won't be wear-testing any upcoming models or giving design insights in the Innovation Kitchen , but instead will be speaking about trade agreements that seek to open up new markets for the U.S. He will argue in favor of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, which he is facing opposition over from Democrats in Congress. Nike has issued a statement on President Obama's upcoming visit : "We are honored President Obama plans to make time to visit Nike to discuss our future growth and innovation plans and the importance of trade to Oregon and the country while on his upcoming trip." No word on whether President Obama's trip will include a stop at the Nike Employee Store. Something tells us he'll be taken care of on the footwear front regardless.
