Donald Trump gaffe: POTUS breaks another law by taking a lap around Daytona 500 track in presidential limo
President Donald Trump recently appeared at the Daytona 500 Race to help celebrate the start of the racing season. However, during one of the ceremonies done before the actual race began, it was revealed that Trump broke the law.
Politicalflare reports that Trump was the Daytona 500 grand marshal, meaning he was in charge of signaling to the drivers when to start their engines, and prior to that, he was to ride around the track for one lap. But people on social media pointed out that Trump actually broke the law as he was going around the track for the one lap, by using the Presidential limousine known as The Beast to do it. There is a law that stipulates that politicians or candidates may not be allowed to use government property to help him in their campaigns.
This would not be the only law that Trump has broken, as he also broke the law for withholding the Congress-appointed aid to Ukraine which started the chain of events that led to his impeachment trial and ultimate acquittal from both charges. However, it has been established before that Trump may not have any regard for rules given his position and possible mindset that he is above the law. Nevertheless, riding the presidential limo around the Daytona 500 track is illegal, and many have pointed it out.
Trump is currently on the trail of his reelection campaign, and the current political divide amongst the general public, Democrats included, may just be the scenario he was hoping for. Rawstory reports that former Republican Congressman David Jolly revealed in an interview at MSNBC that Trump boasted about the divide amongst the public. “Donald Trump has intentionally tried to create the anxiety” amongst the voters. Jolly likened the scenario to a quote by Russian activist Garry Kasparov, “The point of disinformation isn’t to manipulate the truth, it’s to exhaust your critical thinking,” said the former lawmaker.
Jolly went on to recall a moment shared with him by a colleague who was in the Roosevelt Room with Trump. Apparently, his colleague heard the President ask if they had ever seen the country so divided. “I love it that way” he replied, following the comments of the other lawmakers who said they did not. “This is the currency he’s peddling as a political strategy, but it’s not one we have to accept,” said Jolly.
