NASCAR joins the ranks of the politically correct insane and dumps Donald Trump for saying we need to secure our borders to protect Americans.
Trump made reference to Kathryn Steinle who was gunned down by illegal alien Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez on July 1. Trump said the heinous act brought into focus once more the need to build a wall to seal our southern border.
How does NASCAR respond to the policy proposal, they cut ties with Trump, saying it will no longer use “the Trump National Doral Miami resort for its postseason award banquets.” Apparently they prefer our borders open and support illegal aliens to protecting American citizens.
After Steinle’s murder, Trump said enough was enough. On July 3, he said, “This senseless and totally preventable act of violence committed by an illegal immigrant is yet another example of why we must secure our border immediately.”
Trump described the immigration policies that allowed Sanchez to be in the country on July 1 as “absolutely disgraceful” and criticized other GOP hopefuls for not having the “guts to even talk about it.” He added, “The American people deserve a wall to protect our jobs, economy and our safety… I am the only candidate who would build it. I will make America great again!”
That same day, NASCAR announced they were severing ties with Trump and cancelling any future official use of “the Trump National Doral Miami resort.”
According to USA Today NASCAR spokesman David Hidgon said:
We were monitoring it closely and started looking at our own relationship with him and how it may have an impact and ultimately made the decision it does not make sense to continue that… We looked at everything that was said and done and we heard from a lot of our partners and friends and factored all that in.
It appears Trumps stance on ‘saying it like it is’ may cost him a shot at the presidency.
