Earlier this week in an interview with CNBC, Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank showered Donald Trump with praises, referring to him as an “a real asset for the country.”
It was only a matter of time before Under Armour’s most popular celebrity face was asked about Trump being an asset.
“I agree with that description,” Curry said, “if you remove the ‘et’”
Curry went on to say that he will still stand by Under Armour after speaking to the company at length.
“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.”
In the release Curry is referring to, Plank expanded on his comments, saying that he meant Trump was an asset strictly from a business aspect and that he does not agree with all of Trump’s controversial views.
As far as the Warriors’ star, he wants to make it very clear that he will not stand with the company if they adopt Trump’s values.
“If there is a situation where I can look at myself in the mirror and say they don’t have my best intentions, they don’t have the right attitude about taking care of people,” Curry said. “If I can say the leadership is not in line with my core values, then there is no amount of money, there is no platform I wouldn’t jump off if it wasn’t in line with who I am. So that’s a decision I will make every single day when I wake up. If something is not in line with what I’m about, then, yeah, I definitely need to take a stance in that respect.”
