Plank released an old commercial on his personal Instagram account on Sunday showing the adoration of the city of Maryland by Under Armor's ( UAA ) .
He did not name Trump by name, but the intent was clear with his headline: "On behalf of thousands of UA teammates proudly calling Baltimore HOME … work to be done, but we are from this city and for this city, "wrote Plank.
The one-minute commercial, originally released last year, points to an Under Armor website for We Will.
Under Armor launched this marketing campaign in 201
7 to focus more on Baltimore.
Trump sparked controversy on Saturday when he described the city as a "disgusting rat and rodent-ridden mess" and attacked Cummings, representing Maryland's 7th congressional district. The tweets have triggered a response from city officials and politicians to defend the city and condemn Trump.
Plank had previously publicly disagreed with Trump. He resigned in 2017 from Trump's American Manufacturing Council after the president had not directly criticized the neo-Nazis, the KKK and other white supremacists at a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. "I think there is blame on both sides," Trump said earlier, equating the white heads on one side with the "alt-left" on the other side.
"There is no room for racism or discrimination in this world, we choose love and unity," Plank wrote in a tweet.
