2/17/2020

President Trump’s appearance at the Daytona 500 was a highly choreographed showing and part of a concerted effort by his re-election campaign to solidify support among his core voters

The appearance at the NASCAR event, complete with flyovers and a trip around the track in the presidential limousine, was a highly choreographed showing by the president.

moving his official residence from New York to Florida , where he owns several golf clubs and his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach. Recent polls in Florida show Mr. Trump hovering around 49 percent or 50 percent when matched against the leading Democratic presidential candidates, underscoring how close the state is likely to be again this year. A survey at the end of January showed Mr. Trump defeating all four of the top Democratic contenders. Much of that support probably comes from conservative parts of Florida, where NASCAR racing is extremely popular. The Daytona speedway, known as the World Center of Racing, is the main center for the sport. The 500-mile, 200-lap competition is the start of the NASCAR racing season. Last year, Mr. Trump welcomed Joey Logano, the 2018 winner of the NASCAR Cup Series, at the White House, honoring him alongside his No. 22, bright yellow Ford Fusion in which he dominated the season. “NASCAR is not only a thrilling display of skill and power, but a celebration of the American spirit. So true,” Mr. Trump said in April. “No matter who wins the race, you never forget what matters most: God, family and country. And nobody embodies that more than you folks, I’ll tell you.” Previous presidents have also made appearances at Daytona International Speedway. President George W. Bush served as the grand marshal of the Daytona 500 as he campaigned for re-election in 2004. As a candidate in 1992, Bill Clinton campaigned at the Southern 500 in Darlington, S.C., but was booed by many in the crowd upset by his lack of military service in Vietnam, which was an issue in the campaign at the time. Mr. Clinton made an appearance at the Daytona International Speedway as president years later, but not on a race day. He delivered a speech about climate change in 1998 after huge forest fires ravaged parts of Florida. Firefighters had used the speedway as the base of their operations to fight the fires. Like those of Mr. Trump and Mr. Bush, Mr. Clinton’s motorcade made its way around the racetrack, though not at the usual speeds of a NASCAR driver.

.. The 'RED-NECK' race of all race's. So has he reimbursed tax payers for this rally and election campaign trip? Or has just stickied it to the community and tax payers once again. With no one doing their job for accountability? Refuses to pay for his trip. FU$K HIM AND THE HO We new it would be postponed with trump there. He a jinx

We should be reimbursed for the whole thing. Repub or Dem it doesn't matter. Then it rained. Maybe he was just being our President ... it was a good thing & he was appreciated ... that is enough ... realDonaldTrump geez quit being so jealous it’s like going to a ball game. And that would have been done by any President or even Speaker of the House. You want to make it sound that only trump would do this. Nice try. You tweets are so predictable. SHAMEFUL!!!

Can’t wait for the day when fla becomes a real swamp due to climate change. It’s coming! KASHMIRI ARE STILL AWAITING 4PLEBISCITE PROMISED 2 THEM BY UN T THOUGHT'S RESOLUTION IN 1948. ?

Trump arrives at Daytona 500, sets off raucous celebrationPresident Donald Trump made a dramatic entrance at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, setting off a raucous celebration at the famed NASCAR track. Thousands cheered as Air Force One performed a flyover and landed at Daytona International Airport a few hundred yards behind the track. Trump&39 There was no Grand about it! King is here, that lyin king.

And stormy packin' up to go sit in dalai lama's Lap for soul searchin' - - - ? But forever impeached! Daytona 500......aka 10,000 Joe Dirts. Sounds about right. Noone knows where the world is turning to , having left the unstable man at the center of all uncertainty ...He is now powered to do all the undemocratic for america and the rest of the world by extension ...

I will no longer watch this race. And the Lord saw the shit show and said; I shall cleanse my children of the bullshit, and he made it rain. fauxsports So......? You can vote Socialist in, but you gotta shoot them out. And it only cost the hardworking American taxpayer $200,000 per hour to operate Air Force One.

Trump the original hanging chad...

Excellent display of showmanship whoever planned everything learned his skills by watching Hitler's rallies in Nazi Germany. Ensuring my favorite sport dies with the last generation. And, again, the taxpayers paid. Look at me, look at your worthless President working so hard to better our country for all Americans. What a JOKE,a bad one,but none the less,still a JOKE.Either believe in this ridiculous act performed by a lying, shameful excuse of a man or believe in America!U can’t have both.

MAGA crowd thought it was the best thing ever. Just as it was intended. I will never understand how all these people became convinced this awful human being is on their side. Idiocracy is where we are heading. No doubt. and he came across as a robot, stiff, using left finger to underline words, like a child learning to read. zero animation. he pats his leg to summon melania like she a dog to obey & she did

At our expense (taxpayers). Trump’s visit to the Daytona 500, both flying over and driving around, was brilliant brand building. And rightly so--Wasn't it your boy BHO who said elections have consequences. Stay tuned NYT you are about to get 4 more years Brilliant Bravo

Trump looks to rev up his base at Daytona 500President Donald Trump will look to rev up his appeal with a key voting demographic Sunday — NASCAR fans — as he takes in the Daytona 500 crowd gonna be HYPED Hope he gets booed like he deserves.

I hope he bought everyone at DAYTONA500 a beer. lame realDonaldTrump must not have gotten the memo re: what not to wear to the Daytona 500 ...maybe he didn't (couldn't) read it. Your inner stable genius is showing Donald. VoteHimOut VoteThemOut unstablemoron The Bush thing. I’ll take “Thank you, Captain Obvious” for 500, Alex. Truly groundbreaking stuff here. Thanks

No need to solidify his base—they’re not going anywhere Core voters= NASCAR, Mud biggy races and gator 🐊 hunts. (Insert tobacco spit here) LOOKING SMART AND DASHING KEEP IT UP. GREAT JOURNEY and GREAT couple keep it up. Is he the Queen of England What kind of parade was this A dictator showing muscle and power Is this really happening in the US in 2020!!!! Enough is enough

Who paid for this?

Trump taking in Daytona 500 before heading WestPresident Donald Trump will give the command for drivers at the Daytona 500 to start their engines Sunday as he looks to win over NASCAR fans JEFF GORDON, NATIONAL GUARDS MY SPONSOR. AND GO ARMY .COM WITH RYAN NEWMAN Who cares Start your engines......😝

The RNC should pay for the NASCAR rally not the American people. Did he ever attend a race because he is a fan and not because looking for votes? Big Deal SoWhat. realDonaldTrump And the turnout was PATHETIC. How much $$$$$ did his stunt cost TAXPAYERS Say what they are his Racist voters!! He will be doing more of the same.the Dems has no one to Matt he the president skills , courage Talent and patriotism.

A disgrace for the nation and fox sports to be used for strictly political gain The trump campaign should pay for the trip . realDonaldTrump DonaldJTrumpJr USTreasury IRSnews stevenmnuchin1 BretBaier Hey remember when you guys used to have unbiased headlines to allow readers to make their own conclusions? Yeah, me either.

On the American taxpayers dime. Sure see what a boone incumbency is, especially when it’s a morally bankrupt candidate. So?

Trump to test racing skills, mingle with supporters at Daytona 500President Donald Trump will test his racing skills in the political swing state of Florida on Sunday with a lap in his presidential limousine "the Beast" at the Daytona 500 , NASCAR &39;s most prestigious race. Ramping up his nationwide re-election effort after his acquittal in the U.S. Senate

Seriously, every appearance by Obama was highly choreographed with teleprompters... I missed the biased articles... Trump Derangement Syndrome... seek immediate medical attention... What was the cost and security required for this event that should never have become such a flagrant political campaign opportunity for trump! Then it rained, blame it on trump?

So it was rained out So And this... Worked for me. How? Well whenever you all cry about Trump. I just seem to like him more. It looks like he's trying everything he can think of to earn what I call ' brownie points' with the public. you mean his numb nuts? Using our taxpayers money Or campaign funds he doesnt pay?

President Trump Attends Daytona 500, Jokes He Wants to RaceTrump is really, REALLY excited to be at the Daytona 500 today. He might even drive off in joy. Hopefully it crashes and burn 👀 He'd piss his pants and crash.

I saw this. I have never seen a more trashy POTUS than this one. Schools out NO CLASS. 4 more years! Yeah, newsflash for you... that wasn't a campaign event, that was a thank you to patriotic Americans FOR their continuing and unwavering support. Oh, and guess how many voters were watching at home? The lying left wing NYT. WalkAwayFromDemocratsForever

Is this exclusive to Trump? He’s literally the first politician to do this ever in the history of the United States? It seems a bizarre thing to attack him over United states of North Korea And then it rained. Just like it did on his 4th of July. Even God is fed up with Trump's nonsense. So what ? I liked it!! 😉

Good luck with that. It was seen as yet another waste of taxpayer money by everyone else.

Not my vote! Never again... Why is this ok? Trump is your show... And this is news. Every President has done this especially President Obama who could not hardly speak without his teleprompter. Why is the press and Democrats holding this President to a different standard than all other Presidents? And it probably worked!

It worked too!!! We love our president!!!!! Educated people with a critical mind set and a political understanding, may vote for a willow tree but no way to pick a charlatan as whatever. Trump is just sitting in the draft...ready to slingshot at the line🚗🏁 And using taxpayer dollars for his shit show!!

And it was marvelous! Even HUUGE!

Trump’s using the government for his politics. 2019 the US debt was one year was 1 trillion yet the President continues to waste money on a daily basis . This is a waste of tax payer dollars Judging from some pro Trump tweeting by his followers sadly they've been bought. Not that he needs to, he can beat any of your canidates from the Whitehouse.

And ? That's the epicenter of white trash, I'm sure he and his hooker felt right at home, while his daughter/wife was doing photo ops and blowing some Arabs this weekend. I'm just sick of the 'Tramps'. Wet goobers! NYT is a rag. In fact, they're proud of how they built a newsroom in support of the Russian collusion hoax... 'We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well.' -- NYT executive editor Dean Baquet

Liberals hate it when he attends any sport At tax payer expense.

What ever it was, it sure was great and patriotic No shit. What insight. And like this has NEVER EVER happened before. Yep It was awesome How much did this stunt cost the taxpayers? He will ram over all the dems !! He had to read off the teleprompter to give the command to start engines. Imagine having to write that headline

I hope the fans enjoyed the 3 hour wait to get through the gate...at least through Thanksgiving.

😂☺️😂 realDonaldTrump You are getting it done. It’s been tough... but progress continually was made even in the face of adversity. People are watching and learning. It may be different, but like Raegan, it works. Every trial is but another testament of success. Well, they are Trump people. It worked! Really...wow. Great journalism

And it worked! I honestly cant wait for TDS meltdown 2.0 in November! Walking down the back stairs again 🤔stair lift is on order .. If he doesn’t go full blown 🤯dementia & fades away🙏..After losing the election will he exit the WH thru the rear doors😂 in one of daughterwife’s 🤡 costumes A campaign event paid for by the American people.

🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Well all he does is running around and holding hateful rambling speeches filled with lies. On the taxpayers money. Instead of TDS, how about reporting on the destruction of your city and state by Democrats running it. Nope, truth and justice does not matter. “I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me!”

We are not worried about the south. They are very predictable. Have fun Teflon Don. There is no way in hell I would vote for Trump. I left the GOP. They are not like the original party when it first started. A lot of those Senators are going to see a real shift. ANOTHER MILLION DOLLARS DOWN THE DRAIN ! THAT'S WHY AMERICA IS BROKE ' GOVN'T WASTE ' !

So tired of 'his 33% base'. The rest of the country should also be represented. This party crap, elections have consequences, is BS. A minority in this country are picking our representatives. U Want our taxes too No, duh And....! Oh for goodness sake; give it a rest. He’s the president. Everything a president does is somewhat choreographed. He went there, the people loved him, and guess what; he’ll be re-elected. The people that oppose him at every turn have learned nothing. Everyone is bored of hatred.

Waste of money. He would have scalped Gordon and they would have cheered there. Can he stop f*cking flying around for five f*cking minutes? Climate change Hello!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! fdesormeaux Them good ol’ boys. I thought it was great. Air Force 1 swooped down 800 feet above the track. I've never seen anything like it.

So, what's your point? Not like the queue of luvvies intoning support for the BBC, once headed as DG by a certain paper’s head? Dafties. Does Trump even know how to turn on a car? That's what elections are about or did you forget? you're just mad because all the Democratic candidates look like giant dorks.

how much did that little stunt cost? Like all the Super Bowl attention 🏳️🅰️⚪️🔘🌎🌍🌏☑️✅✔️ ♀️♂️ 🌞🌝🌚🌕🌖🌗🌘🌑🌒🌓🌔🌛🌜🌙💫⭐️🌟✨⚡️☄️💥🔥🌪🌈☀️🌤⛅️🌥☁️🌦🌧⛈🌩🌨❄️☃️⛄️🌬💨💧💦☔️☂️🌊🌫😀😃😄😁😆☺️😊😍🥰😘😗😙😚😋😛😝🤩🥳😎😱🤗🤑🤠😈👿👻👽🤖🎃😻😽😺😸🙀🤲🏻👐🙌🏻👏🏻🤝👍🏻👊🏻✊🏻☝🏻💪✍🏻🦶🏻🦵🏻💄💋👄🦷👅👂🏻👃🏻👣👁👀🧠🗣👤👥👶👧🏼🧒🏼👦🏼👩🏼🧑🏼👨👩‍🦱👨‍🦱👩‍🦰👨‍🦰👱🏻‍♀️👱🏻‍♂️👩🏻‍🦳AAAAAAAAAAAAAA

If trump is going to be campaigning on his trips. Then it shouldn’t be done on tax payers dime. Pay for it out of your campaign funds. That should include protection details. If trump can’t afford it, don’t go!!! Ridiculous as usual. Y'all aren't to bright they support TRUMP2020LandsideVictory already

Honestly and a great compation for all people you serve. That tax payers paid for like golf at his clubs The Democrats need to learn from Trump. He does EVERYTHING better. Trump2020

Exactly and a damn good one. Seriously you're a genius for figuring this out. You are a rag not even worthy of toilet paper anymore. Love to see him anytime and anywhere Trump is a True American!!!!! first woman seems younger Wow.. Would never have guessed that. Idiots.... I’d comment - but they did better here than anything I’ll say...

No wonder the race was cancelled No shit. Exactly... his core voters... nobody else... and if they are lucky nascar did not lose a few followers... Republicans are not good Americans.

New York SLIMES. Your language is “highly choreographed” and biased beyond belief. What journalism school did the author go to? Parents, don’t let your kids go there! Some of us who like/love NASCAR are NOT Trump core or anything Trump. Parkland, Pulse, and PuertoRico families in Florida: You got this. 👊 MFOLParkland davidhogg111 lauren_hoggs Emma4Change PulseOrlando HispanicFed Lin_Manuel pitbull ricky_martin JLo

Damn...and I thought he was just having a little Sunday fun with his biggest supporters Going to a freaking Race, so this makes him what, a better man or a better president, never he could be the richest man in the world, and he is still a bad person, a real CLOWN. Everyone knows there’s no NASCAR in Heaven!

It was terrific. Geez - he is so pompous and ..... don't need so say more. Self serving leadership at GOP Why are taxpayers on the hook for these stunts?

And your 'reporting' is as predictable as everything else you do - CorruptMedia MediaBias LunaticLeft FakeNews So he was campaigning. Did his campaign pay for that stunt? Or are tax payers now covering his campaign costs? has he been checked for COVID-19? Who paid for this political stunt? I had better have been his campaign. TrumpIsCorrupt

But he got rained out and so will his re election campaign. All show and no substance. I loved it! From Air Force 1 to his speech, to the lap! Why not! He’s OUR presudent👏👏👏👏👏 Downfall 😂 Maybe mention the fact it was funded by taxpayers and was an abuse of the tools of the office? No? Okay then. Keep up the great work, guys.

Trump trump trump 2020

Trump trump trump 2020 Ok Biggest. Scoop. Ever. ....and ?..😉 No shit! Damb you are intuitive Ever wonder the images are totally not match - Trump and Daytona 500. His supporters are really that easy? Lol It’s almost like the other presidents had better things to do. Everything he does is for re election at our expense.

Maybe, just maybe, he is a President doing what Presidents do ... going where the people are... what a concept

Umm. Not impressed. Was I supposed to be? Redface leading his rednecks. hahahahahahaha...Way to go NYT's, you keep offering free ad time. Keep it coming, let everyone else spend shit loads of money on dreadful ads! Let me guess - it wasn't his campaign footing the bill for this ridiculous show - it was the taxpayers. And we should all be furious.

They throw empties at him? 😂 A waste of taxpayer dollars and resources your so called 'reporters' are biased...and their writing is sophomoric and boring. Your liberal rag is a choreographed effort to demean The President and support liberals at all cost, your act is OLD and people see right through you !!!

Failing NYTs is fakenews President of the people! His core likes watching cars going around and round.. Wow! You must be a genius!! Wasting how many more of our tax dollars for a stupid campaign stunt? While his brainwashed rubes at Daytona500 probably cheered. They'll love USA being just like Russia. And a waste of taxpayer money

Consider this. Despite being called a WH event. One of the cars in the Daytona Racing Events was sponsored by Trump Pence 2020. Making this a campaign event. Yeah he wasn’t at the NBAAllStar2020 🤷🏻‍♀️ wonder why

On the money And? You mean they wanted all the red necks to see him down with the brothers at the race track. A prop and choreographed to a tee what about the other times presidents attended Nascar and threw at the first pitch at a baseball game? Not enough 'Shine in the world, for some pockets who follow Daytona 500. Especially for a person who doesn't drive his own car. My Texan Aunti, who havd a lead foot, took us on her last drive before handing me her keys. 91 & stayed between the lines.

Not a complete set of teeth for a square mile. His people all right. Trump 2020 Trumps a beast !!!! And a giant waste of time

Trump is so cliche. How corny. 🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕realdonaldtrump Will the expense be borne by the campaign, or by taxpayers? So does the cost of this dog and pony show come out of his re-election donations or are we, the taxpayer, paying for his damn show? Duh Wow. The NYTimes has a story about Trump with a negative slant? Impossible! Can’t be happening. Really?

Mmkay. Thanks for that nuthingburger There would be no point in him putting on a show n the Library of Congress. You won't find his supporters in an institution of thinking people.

What else is new Yuck 🤢 FakeNews again published biased opinions as “facts.” NYtimes isn’t even fit to wrap dead fish but smells like them. And And how much did this reelection stunt cost us taxpayers while his budget proposal cuts spending on health care. Um... duh. It was choreographed?!? Are you trying to tell me they weren't just driving by and decided it might be fun to hang a left and see what happens? journalism

None of the drivers took a fender. Core too the ?

Prior to today, how many times has realDonaldTrump sat down to watch the Daytona 500? So? The king of clowns.!!! Still a clown!!! Keep crying NYT Hey don’t forget what BarackObama did at a baseball game throwing the 1st ball. THAT WAS A POLITICAL STUNT but that’s ok. hypocrite report facts not your political opinions fakenews

Where 8% of the viewers are African Americans...... You still don't get it, do you? Waste of taxpayers money! I wonder how much this cost us? Fake news and derisive! Chicago Should be SO PROUD! Starting to Dislike the Jehovah’s Witness Jacksons & DrPhil

Why is NYT make their opinion a priority? They should just stick with facts. No need to add 2 cents of bias opinion. Please learn from Walter Cronkite. 🤢🤢🤢 And the fools are his followers that are paying the bill! 🔥🔥🔥🔥 NASCAR has lost me forever, with this bullshit. A lot of hoopla .... and a lot of expense for a rain delayed event.

Politics aside he's the fucking President everything he does is choreographed he can't just pop in a Baskin Robbins for a cone on a whim Why he wants to damage everything? I hate him!🤬 So, believes POTUS should not do anything to promote his campaign? You have to love a guy who does jobs jobs jobs creation, criminal reform and fairer trade then does the Daytona 500! Great coverage nytimes woohoo......now about the DNC hiring anti liberal Republican Bloomberg and still Faking debates and Voting?

A trump show for reelection. The leftist TDS freaks are really lashing out since the shampeachment went down the toilet. The best that can do now is complain about the President attending a sporting event? It’s too funny! 😂😂😂😂😂😂 It is an election year, right? MAGA: Making America GAG Again! Of course its coordinated. Dont you think all these dem presidential candidates activities are not. Its campaign season NYT ! Trump 2020 !

And then they canceled the race for Sunday Was beautiful!!! MAGA His racist supporters! Whole family of 13 with a total of 12 teeth among them!! And your point ? it was not choreographed and had nothing to do with his campaign, He was invited as grand marshal for the races, His fly over was the best then driving the course was a added benefit for the fans, Only fake news has melt downs over this and has done nothing but lied

The truth is he already has our votes. You just don’t get it do you? Lo que es ser gold digger que sacrificio tener que andar con un crazy psycho solo por dinero.. hasta donde la necesidad por vida de Dios...🤣 The voters going to support you cause they want to leave on the street the next year. 🤪 It was also highly illegal, not to mention a showboating ego stroke. In place of a different kind of stroke.

Lol like any other politician running for anything you mean wow your pathetic ..Name one ever that doesn’t do that 🤪 More than likely half of them are missing their teef and still wear mulletts. Fck him! POTUS anyoneelse Largest pack of trailer trash since that inauguration with “millions of people”🤡

He’s such a 🤡.

I don't think she loves him...body language ban the unnecessary burning of fossil fuels Melania overheard going off about Hope Hicks coming back. After all she is the younger version. Everyone knows she is trumps girlfriend The presidential limo and Air Force 1 are not props. IT’S AGAINST THE LAW! He had no official govt business today. TRUMP BROKE THE LAW USING TAXPAYER FUNDED GOV’T PROPERTY FOR HIS CAMPAIGN STUNTS.

realDonaldTrump looked like a fool with that stunt but he always looks like a fool anyway! What a joke💙💙 Did his re-election campaign pay for the stunt or was the American taxpayer on the hook for it? WAIT WHAT!!!!! A President uses public appearances to enhance his re-election chances. That’s unprecedented and probably impeachable.

Genius!

Courting the NASCAR vote And then the Lord said, “Let the rains wash away this grandstanding and we’ll get back to the real reason people gathered in Daytona tomorrow.” 😉😂😂😇 But it failed! Screw you NYT. On our tax dollars. Smart REDNECKS LOVE MAGA MAGA LOVES REDNECKS I agree 100% Trump 2020.

It was a beautiful display of Patriotic Loyalty on both sides. With regard to the demographic, didn’t the crowd seem somewhat subdued in their cheering of trump ? Or just wishful thinking? Sorry crash test dummy BRILLIANT - LOVED IT 💓! Awesome that they are making appeances at MOST major sporting events 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏!

Wow! Go NY Times! That certainly is some cutting edge, insightful reporting. How do you Gray Lady guys figure these things out? Isn’t that illegal? No kidding. What fascinating journalism. You must be very proud. And how much did it cost taxpayers? And...

Wow your a genius And the problem with that is - question mark? And it was great. Wow! Surprised your stable of professional journalists were bright enough to grasp the significance of appealing to the heart of America .NarcoLOBBYsiglo21 encuestas y maquillajes económicos con dineros de la corrupción y narcotráfico siglo21. Robolucionarios&Robocapitalistas rusos, chinos y norteamericanos engañando y protegiendo sus sucios negocios a través de sus autócratas💰🐀🐀🐀Putin😡XiJinping🤢Trump🤮

Hey New York Crimes Maybe it was just POTUS attending the race. Yuck. Waste of money and time Also illegal

And the crowds went wild Dumbest newspaper ever... Not working as usual. It’s kinda weird that we have a President who takes the weekends off. Trump campaigning with our tax dollars Knew he couldn’t fit into a race car. he is just... a liar. and his wife, the illegal immigrant... shows how much she likes him. tough boogies, hope you get a good settlement. must suck to have to appear with him... but you ain't any better...

How much did this campaign stop cost the taxpayer

Absolutely shocking that politicians try to solidify their core voters. And? We certainly don't need the people at the NY Times to tell us the obvious. Wake up call Times 'you are not the smartest people in the room'. Daytona 500 so trump got a free prime advertising for his campaign. Thats not very ethical. But nothing about trump is ever

More tax dollars wasted on trump He has got our votes!!! Duh. Brilliant New York slime .... and it rained and then rained again. Happy to see that mother nature thought the track needed a good washing after the circus!

And we as taxpayers paid for this? This is not ok. Up to a point the coreography obtain collaboration of god not to rain and destroy capo d’opera of Trump’s hairdressers Awesome. Racist or class insult? Trump triggered NYT, it's a great day. Wait are you gonna claim everything hillary did last election was authentic?

Donald Trump has fears on stairs.. He is accustom to escalators.. Reason for holding on when he walks down those stairs...!!! every time!!!... At the taxpayer expense 😡 Sad. Who pays for this political rally?

Don’t spend my taxes paid for this terrible person re-election campaign. You Republicans can pay for it not me. Or you’ll might be sued for misappropriation of finds. Except fox sports cut him off and went to a blomberg commercial Smart by his campaign. I am sure they were all their Re-election? notgonnahappen

Just like a dear leader. Looking closer and closer like North Korea. Or not. Core voters? So Trump's inference is college educated Republicans are smarter and able to see through Trump's infantine stunts?

Good Brilliant! I hope that did not cost you much to come up with that. If you and your “top notch” team paid a penny for that deduction, call me and I will give you that info for free. Really I thought it was just random. Thanks for the information. Very informative. But hey, at least you're getting there with the not being blatantly against the potus. Media might have a silver lining after all.

And it worked great! We loved it. But used taxpayer money for what has to be seen as a full out campaign stunt as he cruises around the track in the Presidential limo. Just more Trump criminal behavior. So, they used the presidential limousine for a purely political campaign appearance? Big news 😕 She is so hot 🔥🔥

It was a damn creepy showing by IMPOTUS. Very low energy. Attendance ≠ Patriotism President Trump + Daytona 500 = Florida core voters WIN! That's what NationalSocialism is IngrahamAngle His core is a small group of haters, racists, and billionaires. Hi entire time in office has been an ONLY a media opportunity for this go-maniac. He has done little that has elevate our country in the world, raised the quality of life for the majority of Americans, or made certain that our children will have a better future. He sucks as prez.

Shameless Ok, so? 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮 So what. Who didn't know he was going there. He announced himself. So you now saying he can't campaign Well if course it was.

Price tag? Disgusting waste of taxpayer money! Not an official event, simply one of his hundreds of campaign events! Just wrong! Happy President's Day! And he nailed it!!! And it was great! So, the campaign paid for this, not the taxpayers? Trump brought bad luck they got rained out. How much hairspray does that guy use. Melania's hair is flying and his is like a helmet

Gross waste of $ At who’s expense, taxpayers?

That's right bitches. So? and all of us that heard of this stunt were surprise HOW? 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮 Hillbillies... Melania in Daisy Dukes would have killed! 99.9% of the people there are already voting for him. lol The rest are too young to vote. Hey, whatever works NYT Whatever it was it worked now and in November 2020. President Trump will prevail as President thru 2024, the House will become a Republican majority, the Senate will become a stronger Republican majority. Democrats, there will soon be a Valium and Tums sale

Well of course it was. This president doesn’t do anything unless it benefits him. He doesn’t care about anyone but himself and couldn’t care less about anyone but himself!

The NYT has become a joke with its obvious bias. Is that what he told you?! If it was an appearance as President not candidate Trump, why were there so many 2020 signs? Isn't that a violation of the Hatch Act? And if it was a political rally, are American taxpayers footing the bill? Latinos para Trump 2020, guaranteed!

Ha, ha. That is what I they were saying. Pig FamilyTrump Trump’s core voters are those with jobs. Sooooo Awesome!! Brilliant POTUS ; absolutely brilliant!! First time in history, AGAIN!! You do realize how ignorant this tweet sounds, yes? Trump's core voters have never wavered, much less need solidifying. This is why your not trusted, not read and fake news. Lol

Over 100,000 in the stands, maybe and 100,000 on the infield..bad news for Florida Democracts Actually, sounds like something Kim Jong-Un would do. mpgarza2012 needs to stop covering these stories...it’s playing into his 2020 campaign. Stop it! I am your American Citizen 😊 Does it bother you and why Ratings down 40% over the last decade Dying sport for boomers and meth heads

It’s tacky realDonaldTrump playing to the white supremacy NASCAR red necks playing to his core supporters

Shut up NYT sycophants. .... Who paid for this campaign event? The jets were cool. So another campaign event we paid for. Once again trump using tax dollars for campaign purposes. Duh? Campaigning & golfing! Real wages have declined since Trump became president.

They NASCAR fans like him because he has all of his teeth. You sound almost jealous. Thanks Slim. No kidding. And he didn’t even care enough to stick around. Now it’s a wash out. Perfect. Scary thing is it will probably work... yikes! Jealous POS's you Democrats are... Usually 'plain folks' are stereotypically known for seeing through BS of fast talking pooliticians and con artists....but apparently not when it bolsters their inherent prejudices...

These people cheered on Trump and political stunt, then the rain started and now the race will be rescheduled and they're out probably hundreds of dollars in tickets/ travel expenses.....I love karma Not interested. Think of all the pollution those race tracks emit into the air!

Wait...what.... everyday you tell us his core supporters are rock solid behind him. In addition.. We also have poll results that show 95-96% of the GOP is supporting him strongly. What are you talking about? More wasted tax payer money. Just another campaign rally. Do you ever work? *GOOD LUCK, THE DAYTONA 500'$!

AbuseOfPower yet again So all of the Democratic Party’s Socialist and Communist Fuks will be surely going to work tomorrow to celebrate President’s Day while the Trump 2020 crew will be BBQ’ing and celebrating the great success American has been blessed with. Why do taxpayers have to foot the bill for all of these theatrics

Or just the coolest thing a president has ever done. Wait, it's politics? How astute. So happy Our little boy loves parades. Now in a limo on the racetrack. OMG. Need an adult POTUS again.

Disgusting that we all must foot the bill for this endless set of fascist feeling rallies and displays. Was he welcomed? Awesome! Shocked! Woulda thought it was totally spontaneous. As he LOVES to focus on other people doing things for extended periods of time. So the constitutional heretical is attempting to reclaim the presidency. America he is a liar.

You people truly hate America Then why didn’t the campaign pay for the show? I’m tired of funding his re-election effort. Nascar is overrated And we paid for it... Filth

Written by desperate crazed democrats! NYT = sore losers!!! How much did that stunt cost the Tax Payer? Bunch of people that watch cars take left hand turns for 6 hours...makes sense. 100% on the taxpayers' dime. I was proud to boycott the whole thing. Linda1746 Did trump’s campaign pay for this campaign stop ... the security car transport advance teams

This is as much as the basketball games in North Korea When you remove the NYT spin, it was actually it was a great American President at a great American race. Well if one didn’t highly choreograph opportunities like that you’d be stupid Using taxpayers money! Who is paying for this? With Bloomberg flaying away, so unsure of himself he considers having crooked corrupt FeelTheBern backstabbed Hillary on his team....Today was worth $500 Million of Bloomberg ads...

In other news, a politician campaigns for voters by appearing where they are. You just don't get. And probably never will. At the expense of the taxpayers (I’m sure his “campaign” didn’t fork out all that money? What a piece of 💩

Trump is a President for the ages! It was a despicable waste of .... everything. The rest of us voters far outnumber his supporters. It was a ridiculous waste of taxpayer money, and the race hasn't even begun more that a few laps due to rain delays. Serves NASCAR right. Isn’t the same true every time any president shows up at, say, the All-Star Game and throws out the first pitch? Why would the Daytona 500 be different?

Very smart move on realDonaldTrump part. Does anyone else wonder if he is using taxpayer money for this re-election photo op? How many other re-election photo ops is the taxpayer paying for? Like having a concert...? Vote and this traitor is gone. Bloomberg2020

Detest this sub human and his family Fabulously successful!!! Media shocked -SHOCKED-that appearances by politicians at public events would be part of their re-election strategy. Nothing like setting the bar really low for these voters. So much HATE. You people sad and nasty. Feel sorry for you. TRUMP2020LandsideReElectionVictory

Or maybe he was just attending for fun. His campaign needs to pay for it. A complete waste of taxpayer dollars. 😡 Central Florida has historically been Republican, South Florida is Democrat. The West Coast of Florida is a toss up. No matter what we all need to vote blue no matter where you live. People in Florida in general are fed up! VoteBlue

Wow more deep reporting by the failing fake news NYTImes...

Poor Boo-Hoo NYT...........🙄 This kind of immature reporting is why Trump will win 2020. If going in circles and getting nowhere slowly, in a big, tacky, very expensive vehicle isn't the purest visual representation of this malignant regime... Or maybe he just felt like going... Trump 2020🇺🇸 Maniac Trump, remember as the song goes: THE END IS NEAR.

And now we’ve had two rain delays and we’re not even thru 20 laps. I blame Trump. 😂😂😂 Yes. So stop reporting it. gop photo -- par

No further explanations! Made it rain but didn't wreck somehow. Fools mock and by the amount of mocking that spews from your pathetic the times ranks at the top with CNBC and CNN. Gross Donny Bobby took a lap the wrong way-stable genius! Then it rained and delayed the start lol Just when you think it can’t get more AWESOME!

Hahahahaha admitting that nascar fans are his core base tells you everything you need to know. Yeah and!

All publicity stunt plus he jinxed the race Stop. LOL Big waste of money. Loves to waste our money. Taking that no pay and cashing in on the presidency. Pure snake oil salesmen Wah, wah,wah.... Why? Trump already has the Nascar crowd in his corner... florida man: I thought people wanted politics out of sports. What am I missing

We're already solidified. Have you seen the crowds at his rallies?

That was Fantastic.. Feel Good Moment for The USA. I remember The Trans-Pacific Partnership. Someone put there hand up Obamas butt and got him to say it was a good idea! Trump flushed that garbage down the toilet. Talk about the stupidest thing since NAFTA! And ? So? I hope he keeps preaching to the choir and solidifying his base because that means he will lose. What he does to appeal to his corrupt crazy base turns off thoughtful people. People of conscience. The worst thing that could happen now is that he starts acting presidential.

Trump didn’t even stay for any part of the race. He used taxpayers money to parade his ass around the track in a Limo. All the world’s a stage for this D-List TV game show host ripping off the American people. He needs to go. Let him use his own money for his entertainment. Yes it was - good for realDonaldTrump parscale GOP

And? I believe that is what campaigns are all about. I don't like the guy but seriously y'all need a hobby...just don't pick the news - ya suck at it! “The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy.” “When fascism comes to America it will be 'wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross” and the beast of a car. Sinclair Lewis

It worked s SODOM GOMORRAH WASNT INVITED I purposely did not watch until I was sure he was off the course. And due to his extra time taking, and a dark misty cloud, start postponed for 50 minutes. Race my not get completed until Monday. Cheaper rate Bloomberg commercials tomorrow... ... oh he's GOT his core voters, he just doesn't have anyone else... It's not like there are NEW people who are just seeing him now and thinking .. 'Wow he's awesome!'

Good for him...and our country 🇺🇸 NYT’s is the Enemy of the People!! The way you write your articles.. 😂 Is Melania....showing her shoulders I thought the Repubs were disgusted by such a display And tax payers pay for travel and security

Mobilizing your base is how it's done. Dems need to pay attention. Only Trump MAGAt’s like watching cars go round and round and round and round on a racetrack. If he want to get his voters to come out and support him he should wear suits by NASCAR, Carhart, and Realtree. On taxpayers money And taxpayers flipped the bill.

I said when he did the fly over , Q the cryin left. Then the pace car lap in the BEAST? Epic Haters be haters if you want , he triggers you because he won't be a stiff , boring politician. It was awesome! TrumpCrimeSyndicate GOPBetrayedAmerica GOPComplicitTraitors GOPCoverup GOPCowards I have a feeling NASCAR aficionados are less naive and ill-informed than the ConmaninChief apparently thinks they are. They’re a pretty independent breed and aren’t all drawn to Trump’s cult of the needy.

Dump Trump!!!! Oh, you mean the TRAITORS to Democracy? Those people?

But is fake news Get over it Bumpy he is the President, he was invited, he accepted, he honored the American people and the republic of the United States OF America. A President with cajones. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽 Yes I'm sure he and Melania are big time Nascar fans. They have so much in common with them. Why does he always wear a suit...to Daytona...racing cars? Shows how in tune he is...Nyet.

LOL Because being driven by someone else in a car owned by the government is a sign of presidential greatness, of strength? IMPOTUS45 See Americans. Even the weather -& we know who controls the weather- doesn’t like trump & wifey as it rained. Maybe orange ran off hair & face. & tons of makeup of her.

Thoughts and prayers for Daytona So?

First time I've made a concerted effort to skip the Daytona 500 start. Well, most nascar fans are uneducated and ignorant 🤷🏻‍♂️ No shit lol Trump's core voters are on board big time. That is why the lib media runs stories like this. Trump got more votes in the NH primary then any other incumbent President by a wide margin. A fact that the lib media ignored.

Duh! What presidential hopeful's appearances aren't? The man in the Oval Office is still running for office. , you guys can do better than this, right? BPT position: news sources get lazy in politically-charged environments of their own making - headliner What?! Not the NBA AllStar game!? Damn right!

It’s a cult. He’s got NASCAR. This was just another excuse to preen and be adored. Of course it has to be highly choreographed...it’s the President of the United States...! But no other/former president would have gone through such efforts, to make something like that happen...for the core of America...for NASCAR! It shows what he stands for...!

I bet some of those at this event are there for the race, and not Trump. All of these people cannot be that ill-advised. 🤢🤮🤢🤮🤢

VoteThemOut2020 takethesenate donate to DougJonesHQ CalforNC CaptMarkKelly Hickenlooper SaraGideon AmyMcGrathKY GreenfieldIowa harrisonjaime mjhegar He’s not the first president to be at a race. It’s his people. So! Do you Lefties ever have any real fun? I mean besides throwing temper tantrums, hating on Trump supporters or spinning your shallow opinions. 🤷‍♀️🏁💪🏼🇺🇸

Who cares. His mindless cult are attracted to shiny things. Funny reading all of these clueless liberals complaining about the taxpayer cost to Trumps visit to Daytona when they all support socialism that will utterly destroy the economy with all the free shlt that can’t be paid for... Your point? Must be an election year, the president is at the Daytona 500, it's more than a little transparent. For shame, for shame

Waisted 1 hour plus when they could have been Racing. They don’t know what their “product” is. They wasted time and even insulted us with a countdown clock that was totally incorrect. This sport is declining for a reason. They are clueless !!!

Then hit the exit and took off before the race got started. At least stay for awhile. Just shows his use of people as photo pawns... My hard earned money paid for this? I want my money back! Actually this has been done by every president You must be really jealous and hating as usual 😁🤣🤣😂 Lemme guess. A sea of maga hats was on hand

Wow a politician wanting to solidify his base...crazy. It was North Korean garbage, but he knows he can always trust the NYT to frame fascism is a positive way. What amazes me the most is, whoever wrote this is paid way too much for reporting something so blatantly Obvious. Loved every minute of it! BestPresidentEver

the nascar vote Well duh. Why waste time writing about it? It was incredible! Wahoo 2020. I heard the race announcers on Fox say that those race cars are fueled by whiny liberal tears. Well done Mr. President! MAGA2020 NotABadThing How much did we pay for this shit show? His taxpayer paid campaign blatant during a paid for platform NASCAR he is a good deal maker for himself. SenateGOP amyklobuchar senatemajldr

President Trump’s appearance at the Daytona 500 was a highly choreographed showing and part of a concerted effort by his re-election campaign to show his supporters how much he appreciates their support. A man who compulsively has the need to be the center of attention. Kind of the antithesis of Teddy Roosevelt.

The Grifter 500 So it’s was a campaign event that we, the taxpayers, paid for....will we ever see repayment for ALL the times, WE’VE footed the bill for realDonaldTrump campaign events? In the picture above his face is half white and half orange again...is this one also 'photo-shopped', Trump? In other breaking news, 3 other presidents have been to the same even during their presidencies. Also hot off the press...many past presidents attend all sorts of sporting events. Now back to our favorite fish wrapper, the NY Times.

If you think all Nascar fans will vote for him you're wrong, many of us don't support Trump. I didn't vote for Trump last time and I certainly won't in 2020 and I've been a Nascar fan since I was a kid in the '70's. realDonaldTrump really can't catch a break with you people...Now that's pure, unadulterated hate 😤

His core voters are a bunch of drunks? Another Puff Piece by the NYT. Slow News Day Again.

Caution debris on the track. Politics has no place in NASCAR. Greatest POTUS ever!!! Trump2020 How much did this cost the tax payers? Trump know his New York behind never went to a race car event boxing event yes nascar event no he just tickling them folks ears Fun to watch on TV! Its called winning....

And that would have been done by any President or even Speaker of the House. You want to make it sound that only trump would do this. Nice try. You tweets are so predictable. SHAMEFUL!!! In such a muddled race, I think I would name who you think 'all four of the top Democratic contenders' are instead of assuming there's some clear-cut top 4. For example, is Bloomberg in the top 4? Is Warren? Is it even clear that Biden is? shearm

No kidding.... Lol....... Liberal media cannot just report the news without injecting obvious heavily biased opinions. No kidding. Really? That might be the first time any sitting President has choreographed a visit to a swing state. Imagine that? That is some seriously insightful reporting. Choreographed? Just like Kim Jong- Un.

And we paid for it. So disgusting. Why Ricky Bobby must have been so impressed... That’s not journalism it’s whining.

So a tax payer funded campaign add? Got it I turned it off when he got out of the car! Perfect timing to turn it back on when his car drove away Money this charade cost would have been better spent on free college tuition for illegals Sick F**k Once a Democratic candidate is selected, isn’t he/she entitled to equal time?

It's hard to imagine how strong the Republican blowback would have been if Obama had done something absurd like this. White -Voters, That support a Conman. Please let me know how Can they(The Children) get their Money Back. And Taxpayer footed the bill. you get paid to make these expert deductions?

Scored pro-Republican Times Tweet Scorecard Since 2/6 Anti-China: 35 Anti-Democrats: 14 Pro-Republicans: 12 Anti Blue State: 3 Anti Red State: 1 Pro-Democrats: 1 Anti-Republicans: 1 Anti Biden: 6 Anti-EU: 2 He also left before the race even started. Was disgusting No crap.
