President Donald Trump has addressed driver Bubba Wallace and NASCAR on Monday, alleging that a noose found in his garage at Talladega Superspeedway last month was a hoax. The leader of the free world also questioned NASCAR’s decision to have the controversial Confederate flag removed from the sport’s events.

Donald Trump tweeted: “Has @BubbaWallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX? That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!”

Wallace, NASCAR’s only Black full-time driver, was joined by all 39 other drivers and their crews on June 22 in a march down pit road, as they pushed his No. 43 to the front of the line in the moments before the race.

An FBI investigation determined that Wallace was not the victim of a hate crime and that the pull rope fashioned like a noose had been on a garage door at the speedway since as early as October, NASCAR announced on June 23.

People took to Twitter to speak on the President’s comments.
