WITH US THIS MORNING ON THE WEST

COAST TO GUIDE US THROUGH THIS

WE APPRECIATE IT

THANKS SO MUCH

AS THE VIRUS RAGES ACROSS THE

COUNTRY, AS YOU HEARD, PRESIDENT

TRUMP IS DIGGING IN ON HIS

CAMPAIGN OF RACIAL RESENTMENT.

AFTER RAILING AGAINST THE

MOVEMENTS FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE IN

TWO SPEECHES OVER THE FOURTH OF

JULY WEEKEND YESTERDAY HE

AMPLIFIED THAT IN TWO TWEETS

ASKING WHEN BUBBA WALLACE WOULD

APOLOGIZE FOR THE NOOSE FOUND IN

HIS GARAGE, SUGGESTING NASCAR

MADE A BAD DECISION BANNING THE

CONFEDERATE FLAG

HE REFERRED TO THE CORONAVIRUS

AS THE CHINA VIRUS

SUGGESTED THE INCREASE IN CRIME

IN NEW YORK AND CHICAGO ARE DUE

TO THE CITISIMMIGRANTS

AND ACCUSED SPORTS TEAMS OF

RETHINKING NAMES OF GIVING INTO

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

ROBERT COSTA POSTED THIS, MANY

ARE EAGER TO TURN TO BIDEN AND

CHINA, VERY LITTLE APPETITE FOR

THE CONTINUED FOCUS ON RACE BUT

THE PRESIDENT INSISTS ON DRIVING

HIS OWN MESSAGE THE ADVISER

SAYS

NOW MORE SPECIFICALLY ON THE

PRESIDENTS TWEET ASKING IF

NASCAR DRIVER BUBBA WALLACE HAS

APOLOGIZED TO THOSE WHO STOOD BY

HIS SIDE AFTER HIS TEAM

DISCOVERED A NOOSE IN HIS GARAGE

STALL ON JUNE 21ST, CALLING THE

INCIDENT A HOAX.

NASCAR HAD NOTIFIED WALLACE OF

THE ROPE HANGING IN HIS STALL

AND AN FBI INVESTIGATION THEN

CONCLUDED NO HATE CRIME WAS

COMMITTED.

THE NOOSE FOUND IN THE GARAGE

HAD BEEN THERE SINCE OCTOBER OF

LAST YEAR, LONG BEFORE THE STALL

WAS ASSIGNED TO BUBBA WALLACE.

WALLACE, WHO IS THE ONLY

FULL-TIME BLACK DRIVER IN

NASCARS TOP RACING SERIES, LED

THE PUSH FOR THE SPORT TO BAN

THE CONFEDERATE SYMBOLS AT ITS

TRACKS AND RECEIVED A FLOOD OF

SUPPORT FROM HIS FELLOW DRIVERS

AFTER THE ROPE WAS FOUND

IN A STATEMENT YESTERDAY NASCAR

SAID IT, QUOTE, CONTINUES TO

STAND TALL WITH BUBBA.

WALLACE TWEETED YESTERDAY

AFTERNOON ADDRESSING, QUOTE, TO

THE NEXT GENERATION AND LITTLE

ONES FOLLOWING MY FOOTSTEPS,

QUOTE, ALWAYS DEAL WITH HATE

BEING THROWN AT YOU WITH LOVE.

LOVE OVER HATE EVERY DAY

LOVE SHOULD COME NATURALLY AS

PEOPLE ARE TAUGHT TO HATE, EVEN

WHEN ITS HATE FROM THE

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY

KAYLEIGH McENANY WAS ASKED BY

REPORTERS IN THE BRIEFING ROOM

ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMPS NASCAR

TWEET YESTERDAY AND SPECIFICALLY

ABOUT THE CONFEDERATE FLAG

HERES HOW SHE DEFENDED THE

PRESIDENT.

>> WHY IS THE PRESIDENT SO

SUPPORTIVE OF FLYING THE

CONFEDERATE FLAG

>> SO I THINK YOURE REFERRING

TO A TWEET THIS MORNING IS THAT

RIGHT?

>> RIGHT.

>> I THINK YOURE

MISCHARACTERIZING THE TWEET?

>> NASCAR SAW BAD RATINGS

BECAUSE THEY BANNED THE

CONFEDERATE FLAG

DOES HE BELIEVE NASCAR SHOULD

FLY THE CONFEDERATE FLAG

>> THE POINT OF THE TWEET WAS TO

NOTE THE INCIDENT, THE ALLEGED

HATE CRIME THAT WAS NOT, IN

FACT, A HATE CRIME.

>> WHAT IS THE PRESIDENTS

POSITION, DOES HE THINK NASCAR

MADE A MISTAKE BANNING THE

CONFEDERATE FLAG

>> I SPOKE TO HIM THIS MORNING

ABOUT THIS, HE SAID HE WAS NOT

MAKING A JUDGMENT ONE WAY OR THE

OTHER, THE INTENT OF THE TWEET

WAS TO STAND UP FOR THE MEN AND

WOMEN OF NASCAR AND THE FANS AND

THOSE WHO HAVE GONE IN THIS RUSH

TO JUDGMENT OF THE MEDIA TO CALL

SOMETHING A HATE CRIME WHEN THE

FBI REPORT CONCLUDED THIS WAS

NOT AN INTENTIONAL RACIST ACT.

>> DOES HE THINK IT WAS A

MISTAKE FOR NASCAR TO BAN IT.

>> THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WASNT

MAKING A JUDGMENT ONE WAY OR THE

OTHER.

>> WHY IS THE PRESIDENT

SUGGESTING THAT MR. WALLACE

SHOULD APOLOGIZE

>> THE FBI CONCLUDED THIS WAS

NOT A HATE CRIME AND HE BELIEVES

IT WOULD GO A LONG WAY IF BUBBA

CAME OUT AND ACKNOWLEDGED THAT

AS WELL.

>> SHANA THOMAS, THATS AN

EXTRAORDINARY MOMENT AT THE

WHITE HOUSE.

THE PRESS SECRETARY STOOD THERE

AND COULD NOT ANSWER THE

QUESTION ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT

THE PRESIDENT SUPPORTS THE

CONFEDERATE FLAG

AND SHE SORT OF SPUN OUT OF

CONTROL TRYING TO EXPLAIN SOME

CONTEXT AROUND IT.

NASCAR HAS SUPPORTED BUBBA

WALLACE, I WILL SAY AGAIN WE SAW

THE IMAGES A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AT

THE TRACK, BUBBA WALLACE HAS

BEEN CLEAR ABOUT WHAT HE FOUND,

WE SAW A PHOTOGRAPH OF IT.

THE FBI SAID IT WAS NOT A HATE

CRIME AND IT WAS NOT DIRECTED AT

HIM, THATS GREAT NEWS

IF YOU CANT ANSWER A QUESTION

ABOUT THE CONFEDERATE FLAG FROM

THE WHITE HOUSE, WHAT ARE WE

DOING?

>> ITS -- THE REASON WHY I WAS

SMILING WHEN YOU CAME TO ME IS

BECAUSE IT IS ALMOST LAUGHABLE

IT LOOKED LIKE A "SATURDAY NIGHT

LIVE" SKETCH IF IT WAS ON THE

AIR.

THEY DONT NEED TO BE ON THE AIR

BECAUSE WE ARE DOING THIS AT THE

WHITE HOUSE.

THE QUESTION ABOUT THE

CONFEDERATE FLAG TO THE WHITE

HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY IS A GIMME

QUESTION

ITS A GIMME QUESTION TO SUPPORT

NASCAR IN TRYING TO BE MORE

INCLUSIVE.

ITS A GIMME QUESTION TO SAY

MISSISSIPPI DID WHAT THEY NEEDED

TO DO AND TO HAVE TO TORTURE

YOURSELF AS YOU TRY TO FIGURE

OUT HOW TO ANSWER PRETTY SIMPLE

QUESTIONS FROM THE WHITE HOUSE

PRESS CORPS, IT SEEMS LIKE WERE

LIVING IN AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE.

I WAS READING A WASHINGTON POST

STORY AND THEY TALKED TO LINDSEY

GRAHAM ABOUT THIS.

LINDSEY GRAHAM SAID IM FROM

SOUTH CAROLINA AND WHAT I

LEARNED IS IF YOU FLY THE

CONFEDERATE FLAG -- THIS ISNT

AN EXACT QUOTE -- BUT IF YOU FLY

THE CONFEDERATE FLAG THATS NOT

GOOD FOR BUSINESS.

I DONT THINK BEING ABLE TO -- I

DONT THINK THAT IF YOU CANT

ACTUALLY SAY YOU KNOW WHAT, THE

CONFEDERATE FLAG IS A SYMBOL OF

HATE FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THIS

COUNTRY AND PROBABLY ITS TIME

FOR IT TO COME DOWN, IF YOU

CANT EVEN BE THAT WISHY-WASHY

ABOUT IT, AND LINDSEY GRAHAM

KNOWS THAT THE CONFEDERATE FLAG

IS BAD FOR BUSINESS, THE

CONFEDERATE FLAG IS BAD FOR

GROWING YOUR BASE ALSO

IT STILL COMES BACK TO THE

ELECTION, IT COMES BACK TO 2020.

AND IN HER TORTURED RESPONSE THE

WAY I GOT THAT IS I DONT WANT

TO ALIENATE ANYONE RIGHT NOW

BUT YOURE NOT BRINGING ANYONE

INTO YOUR CORNER IF THAT IS HOW

YOU HAVE TO ANSWER THOSE

QUESTIONS FROM PETER ALEXANDER

AND JONATHAN CARL.

>> THE PRESIDENT GOT A GREAT

JOBS NUMBER, THE COUNTRY GOT A

GREAT JOBS NUMBER ON THURSDAY,

4.8 MILLION JOBS ADDED

HES BEEN TOUTING THAT NUMBER.

MARK MEADOWS AND OTHERS AROUND

WOULD LIKE HIM TO FOCUS IN ON

THAT, ON THE ECONOMY GETTING

BETTER, NOT WHERE IT SHOULD BE,

OF COURSE, BUT GETTING BETTER

AND YET THE PRESIDENT COMES OUT

AND STEPS ALL OVER ANY MESSAGING

THE WHITE HOUSE PLANNED.

THIS IS A PATTERN WEVE SEEN

MANY TIMES BEFORE, BY TWEETING

AGAINST BUBBA WALLACE AND

GETTING TO THE RIGHT OF NASCAR

AND THE CONFEDERATE FLAG, TO THE

RIGHT OF THE STATE OF

MISSISSIPPI ON THE CONFEDERATE

FLAG

WHAT IS HIS PLAY HERE EXACTLY?

>> THIS IS HIS ONLY PLAY AND

THIS IS SOMETHING WE DISCUSS

OVER AND OVER AGAIN THROUGHOUT

THE FIRST TERM HERE OF HIS

PRESIDENCY, WHERE REPUBLICANS

AND EVEN PEOPLE CLOSE TO THE

PRESIDENT WHO HAVE HIS BEST

INTERESTS AT HEART WANT HIM TO

DISCUSS HIS SUCCESSES THAT CAN

GROW HIS BASE, THAT EVERYBODY

CAN BE A PART OF

A GROWING ECONOMY.

WE WENT THROUGH THIS IN A 2018

MIDTERM CAMPAIGN WHERE THE

ECONOMY WAS BOOMING AND

REPUBLICANS CLOSE TO THE

PRESIDENT, ON CAPITOL HILL, WERE

BEGGING THE PRESIDENT TO TALK

ABOUT THE ECONOMY, A SUCCESS FOR

HIM AND THE COUNTRY THAT PEOPLE

COULD FEEL GOOD ABOUT THAT COULD

MAKE PEOPLE FEEL GOOD ABOUT HIS

LEADERSHIP AND THE PRESIDENT

INSTEAD IS MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE

DISCUSSING CULTURAL POLITICS AND

PROSECUTING A CULTURE WAR

BECAUSE HE BELIEVES THAT IT

BUCKS UP HIS BASE, SQUEEZES OUT

EVERY OUNCE OF SUPPORT HE CAN

GET FROM PEOPLE INCLINED TO

SUPPORT HIM AND HIS PARTY IF

THEY SHOW UP AT THE POLLS.

ITS WHERE HES A MORE

COMFORTABLE POLITICIAN

ITS A MESSAGE THAT HE FEELS, I

THINK, MORE INTERESTED IN.

HE FEELS BETTER ABOUT.

SO AS WE HEAD INTO THIS NEXT

ELECTION WERE SEEING THE SAME

THING AND I DONT EXPECT IT TO

CHANGE

OBVIOUSLY WHAT REPUBLICANS WOULD

LIKE IS FOR THE PRESIDENT NOT TO

JUST FOCUS ON THE ECONOMY

BECAUSE ITS SOMETHING THAT

COULD BE UNIFYING BUT BECAUSE

WHEN YOU LOOK AT POLLING, ITS

THE ONE AREA HE STILL GETS

POSITIVE MARKS, HES NOT UNDER

WATER.

HE HAS ISSUES WITH THE PANDEMIC,

CORONAVIRUS, ANYWAY YOU ASK THE

QUESTION

WHEN YOU ASK ABOUT HIS HANDLING

OF THE ECONOMY, EVEN THOUGH

WERE IN A PANDEMIC INDUCED

RECESSION, HE STILL GETS

POSITIVE MARKS AND CHINA IS

ANOTHER ISSUE IF MESSAGED

PROPERLY WHERE THE PRESIDENT HAS

A RECORD THAT HE COULD FALL BACK

ON

HES BEEN WILLING TO GO TO WAR

WITH CHINA ON TRADE, MAYBE IT

HASNT TURNED OUT SO WELL BUT

HES BEEN AUTHENTIC AND

CONSISTENT THERE

BUT THE PRESIDENT INSTEAD

PREFERS TO TALK ABOUT THE THINGS

WEVE SEEN OVER THE PAST FEW
