President Donald Trump’s campaign manager deleted a tweet featuring a dramatic photo of Air Force One at the Daytona 500 after users pointed out that the shot was from President George W. Bush’s visit to the NASCAR race in 2004, not from Trump’s visit on Sunday.
Brad Parscale tweeted the 2004 photo, which shows Air Force One rising above packed stands at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida, and wrote, “[email protected] won the #Daytona500 before the race even started.”
The tweet stayed online for about three hours, drawing at least 6,700 retweets and 23,000 likes before it was deleted. Users identifying themselves as Trump supporters replied with messages like “Amazing shot wow” and “WOW WHAT A SHOT!!!!!!!!!”
