NASCAR, ESPN Cancel Events at Properties Donald Trump Owns — His Response Is CLASSIC!

In true Donald Trump fashion, the presidential candidate blew off NASCAR and ESPN event cancellations at properties he owns following his remarks on illegal immigration as he would be saving money. That’s not to mention, it appears as if both organizations have shot themselves in the proverbial foot, just to maintain political correctness.

Trump’s full statement reads:

The disassociation of ESPN and NASCAR with the Trump Organization was covered by the press in headlines all over the world as though it was a major setback for me. Really? What were the losses? One NASCAR banquet in a magnificent ballroom at Trump National Doral in Miami for which I will keep their very substantial deposit and rent the ballroom to someone else that night––in other words, two fees instead of one (NASCAR has already apologized to me)! In the case of ESPN, they cancelled a simple golf outing at my course, Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, perhaps the most valuable parcel of land in all of golf. Likewise, they lost a large deposit. I will now let people use the course on that day, receiving substantial additional greens fee income. Again, I get two fees instead of one. This is the big deal built up by the press on ESPN and NASCAR––a banquet and a golf outing. Headlines blared all over the world, “ESPN and NASCAR Dropping Trump”––Give me a break! All of this because of my strong stance on illegal immigration during my run for President…Make America Great Again!

Boom! Game, set, and match to the presidential candidate.

The more people learn and hear from Donald Trump, the more people like and understand he’s running for office with no issues on calling things how he sees them — plus he’s not going to be bought or controlled by outside forces.

The media has little or no credibility because they report on what they favor and ignore news unfavorable to their progressive agenda. Most people appreciate fairness and balance in the news but they’re not getting it from the liberal media.

  • One of the reasons I support Trump is that he really does not care if they pressure him financially. He will still speak the truth. He is concerned about the future of his family in this country. Apparently he does not like commie pukes any more than I do. LOL

  • Hey , NASCAR ! Ya better watch pissin' off the NASCAR fans ! Billy Bob and all his relatives can make ya disappear ! As in not going to NASCAR races ! Look what happened to Target over their lettin' child molesters and perverts in to the wimmins restrooms !

  • Who cares about NASCRAP anymore. They have to act PC, and that is really losing longtime fans very quickly. I mean look at the big failures they have pulled over the past few years that have alienated their loyal fan base. For example that stupid Race for the Chase, what a big joke, because it was a way to make sure their fan favorites such as Jimmy Johnson and some of the other no talent drivers with so called Hollywood looks could possibly win a championship. The ridiculous cookie cutter cars of tomorrow, really? They are supposed to be stock cars, not some idiotic looking car that is nowhere near what you could buy at a dealership. Telling the drivers they have to be polite to each other instead of letting them do like Earnhardt Sr. used to do and putting someone into the wall or knock their bumpers off, because that was what made the sport interesting and competitive. Of course who cares about ESPN as well? They get all whiny when one of their announcers tells the truth and speaks their mind. Political correctness will eventually put both organizations out of business.

  • Have the decision-making positions at NASCAR been taken over by progressive wannabe slave owners?
    Those left of center should never be allowed authority over or responsibility for others. They should never be in a position to make decisions for others. Those left of center are extremely small in number, less than two percent. That small number has, through manipulation and lies, drug the Democrat party over into crazy land with them.

  • You see, this is something I will never understand. Why a public person or organization that depends in large part on fans, would say or do something that alienates some, a lot or most of their fans? I'm a NASCAR fan and have been even before it was NASCAR. But, I'm losing patience with them. If, it's not one thing it's another and I'm about done with it. Race and shut up, I don't want your PC crap in between each race. Short leash with me, I'm about done with them.

  • Simply, he is saying what the public wants to hear----the truth to a lot bad happenings over the last 6 years. His stature gives him media notice, so fire away D. Trump. He is not your typical political figure or candidate, and, with no ties to the big money and special interests group that dominate our politics in Washington today, he is a breath of fresh air----At last.

  • I'm voting Trump unless he drops out. Truth is coming from Trump and no where else right now. Always thought of Trump as a rich buffoon but now I'm seeing him as a viable candidate. Again, I'm voting Trump.

  • I think, in the long run, if Trump will hang in there, all these attacks on him by the left will backfire and he will lead the pack. When people realize that he is being "punished" for bringing to light the incompetence of our current legislators and the fact that American's needs are not being met along with the pandering to special interests, he is going to skyrocket to the top. I know Texas will end up on his side because he speaks our language. If he will just stick with it and keep on the same path without backing down, I think he will be catapulted to the top and you will see a huge reversal of attitudes when others see the result. Hang in there, Donald, you are taking the right road, don't let all the attacks derail you.
