Adult sizes of Nike's "True to 7" sneakers, which pay tribute to former NFL quarterback and political activist Colin Kaepernick, sold out on their first day, according to the company website.

The big picture: Kaepernick has been a controversial figure since 2016, when he began taking a knee during the national anthem to protest racial inequality. Nike embraced the athlete in 2018, featuring him prominently in the 30th anniversary of its "Just Do It" ad campaign. The company's support for Kaepernick resulted in a #BoycottNike movement.

Kaepernick is no longer in the NFL. He alleged in 2018 that NFL team owners colluded to keep him off rosters due to his politics, but settled a lawsuit against the league in February.

The U.S. is now vaccinating an average of 2 million people a day, up from 1.3 million in early February.

Why it matters: That puts us on track to hit President Biden's goal of 100 million doses a month ahead of schedule.

The Senate on Thursday voted 51-50 — with Vice President Kamala Harris breaking the tie — to proceed to debate on President Biden's $1.9 trillion coronavirus rescue package, likely setting up a final vote this weekend.

The state of play: Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) is forcing the Senate clerk to read the entire 628-page bill on the floor, a procedural move that will likely add 10 hours to the 20 hours already allotted for debate.

Netanyahu campaigns against Biden's plan to save Iran deal

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu indirectly criticized the Biden administration for its intention to return to the Iran nuclear deal and told his supporters he was prepared to "stand against the entire world" to stop it.

Why it matters: This is a major change of tune for Netanyahu, who had been careful in his statements on the Iran deal and avoided publicly criticizing President Biden. The statement was part of Netanyahu's attempt to rally his base ahead of Israel's election on March 23.
