The effect of Trump’s trade war on the humble football boot

The humble football boot,despite its servile status,can cost a pretty packet when it happens to be made by Nike,Adidas or one of these.
That’s mainly because they are worn and marketed by most big name football players.
Cristiano Ronaldo,Kylian Mbappe,Eden Hazard,Leroy Sane, Alisson,Anthony Martial and Neymar all wear the Nike Mercurial and so do about 94 other top flight players worldwide.
The Adidas Predator is worn by 58 EPL players and Adidas X is even more popular- worn by players like Heung-min Son,Ruben Loftus-Cheek,Callum Hudson-Odoi,Paul Pogba,Dele Alli and Harry Winks.
Trump,with his trade war against China,has put a spanner in the works of this very lucrative industry.
173 companies,including Nike and Adidas,have sent a letter to Trump asking him to cease and desist.
Maybe very soon,we will see,Trump marketing his own brand of football boots.
Once his trade wars have wiped out the oppostion he will reveal to the world his awesome new creation ………
The Trump Terminator Boot -specially designed to enable players to score self goals with impunity.
He will be able to market them as pretty effective boots,citing examples of how he has used them to score self goals against America in several fields – like climate change,immigration etc etc
