Kim posted a link on his blog to an article that posits that Nike and Levi are doing these seemingly harmful things to try and prevent trade resets with China and (reportedly) North Korea, where the Chinese now go for low cost labor. They're "siding" with those opposing Trump and his trade actions in order to preserve their current trade environment and, apparently, much more money than they might lose by alienating many of their American customers.
Saw that, commented there and will say here; the thesis does not add up.

HTRN, I would tell you that you are an evil fucker, but you probably get that a lot ~ Netpackrat

Describing what HTRN does as "antics" is like describing the wreck of the Titanic as "a minor boating incident" ~ First Shirt
