Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) objected to President Donald Trump’s decision to lash out at Bubba Wallace and NASCAR’s Confederate flag ban. Graham spoke to Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade on Monday during his radio show, where he sided with the racing organization’s decision to bar the Confederate flag from their events.
“I don’t think Bubba Wallace has anything to apologize for,” Graham said in response to the tweet. “You saw the best in NASCAR. When there was a chance that it was a threat against Bubba Wallace, [the drivers] all rallied to Bubba’s side. I would be looking to celebrate that kind of attitude more than being worried about it being a hoax.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham pushed back on Trump’s tweet suggesting NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace should apologize after the FBI determined last month that he was not a target of a hate crime when a noose was found in his garage stall before a race.https://t.co/JEeKXAItk6
