After watching one of America’s corporate giants bail on Betsy Ross, Gov. Doug Ducey decided to Just Do It.

In a series of overnight tweets, Ducey announced he is yanking millions of dollars in state incentives offered to get Nike to build a manufacturing plant in the suburban city of Goodyear.

“Instead of celebrating American history the week of our nation’s independence, Nike has apparently decided that Betsy Ross is unworthy, and has bowed to the current onslaught of political correctness and historical revisionism,” Ducey wrote in a series of tweets early Tuesday.
