Almost two hours before the president's arrival, a lone protester stood on the intersection of Russell Street and West Avenue. She wore  a Nike brand tank top, and her sign echoed the recent controversial Nike ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick.

Ashley, who preferred not to give her last name or have her photo taken, drove from Brookings because she wanted to make her voice heard. She explained the Nike ad was an inspiration to her to speak out on the things she thinks are wrong with the country right now.
