President Trump Says Bubba Wallace Should ‘Apologize for Hoax’

On Monday, Donald Trump used the bully pulpit of the United States presidency to go after NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace.

Using his favored social media platform, Trump tweeted that Wallace should apologize to the drivers and crew members who stood alongside him at Talladega Superspeedway in the aftermath of a discovery of a noose in his garage stall on June 21.

An investigation by both NASCAR and the FBI revealed that Wallace was not the target of a federal hate crime and that a garage pull rope had been fashioned in the form of a hangman’s noose since the previous race at the Alabama superspeedway in October.

NASCAR conducted a thorough sweep of all 1,684 garage stalls at all 29 tracks used by the Cup Series, Xfinity Series and Gander Outdoor Truck Series after the incident and found 11 that featured a pulldown rope tied in a knot.
