Bubba Wallace was the target of a tweet from President Donald J. Trump on Monday morning

President Trump is, at least in part, referring to the visual of NASCAR drivers standing behind Wallace at Talladega on June 22, the day after a noose was reportedly discovered in his garage stall. Trump tweeted on Monday morning.

"You have to be prepared for that and you don't learn these things in school".

"Well one of the things that will be really great: You know, the word "experience" is still good". You learn them from trials and tribulations, the ups and downs this insane world provides.

"You look at the circumstances and the reaction that they had at Talladega; if you do that any other way and it doesn't work out the way that it did, the circumstances are way worse on the other side", Harvick continued.

NASCAR's only full-time black driver reacted by telling his hundreds of thousands of fans to "walk proudly on the path you have chosen", adding that "haters" such as Trump only served to elevate their voices and platforms. "I went through a lot of stress of trying to make everybody happy, and one wrong move would blow up and you quickly realize that you'll never make everybody happy".

NFLPA voted to cancel the preseason
According to reports , the NFLPA voted unanimously to recommend playing no preseason games due to coronavirus concerns. The NFL dearly hopes they can have fans in the stands this year, if or when play resumes.

The media has reported that COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. are down to about 600 per day, overall, from their peak of about 3,000 per day in April and May. Love should come naturally as people are TAUGHT to hate. "Even when it's HATE from the POTUS - love wins", Wallace told his followers on Twitter.

Reddick's tweet was deleted shortly after it was posted. As it turned out, an investigation showed the noose had been in the garage for some time and was not directly targeting Wallace, but the FBI and NASCAR have confirmed that a noose was in fact present and found by the team.

Trump ripped NASCAR for its handling of the situation and asked on Twitter why Wallace hadn't apologized for what the president called a "hoax".

NASCAR president Steve Phelps - who first informed Wallace about the found noose - previously addressed baseless accusations that this was a staged incident or a hoax and said he is personally offended by those claims. Just 11 of those approximately 1,700 garage doors had knots of any kind in their ropes.

Hours later, Wallace, who finished ninth on Sunday at The Brickyard, responded to Trump's tweet with a message to "the next generation and little ones following my foot steps", stating love wins over hate.

Beats by Dre said the timing of the announcement was not a coincidence.

It was some mind-bending stuff.

Wallace's popularity and notoriety has exploded over the past month after he helped NASCAR to ban confederate flags from being flown by fans at events. He has worn a shirt saying "I Can't Breathe", raced with a Black Lives Matter paint scheme in Virginia and successfully lobbied for NASCAR's Confederate flag ban. The great officials that continue to stand behind me, NASCAR drivers and officials have continued to stand behind me through it all.
