Trump Attacks Bubba Wallace, Defends Confederate Flag

President Trump is being racist again. In a tweet Monday morning, the self-proclaimed “least racist person” on the planet attacked Bubba Wallace, the only full-time Black driver in NASCAR’s top racing series, and criticized the sport’s decision to ban the Confederate flag.

The tweet appears to be part of a broader strategy borne of Trump’s apparent belief that his only path to victory in November is ramping up his racism. He’s recently defended Confederate monuments and military bases named for confederate leaders, called Black Lives Matter a “symbol of hate,” and said he may kill a policy meant to reduce racial segregation in housing.
