And he proved that today while attending the Daytona 500 in Florida, when he hightailed it out of there before the race even began.

From Raw Story:
“In March 1999, plans were announced to build just that track, which would have cost $400 million and would have seated 300,000 stock-car fans, even more than the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” wrote Forbes. “It was to be a joint effort by NASCAR’s France family, then led by Bill France Jr., and Trump, then a New York real-estate mogul.”
The track was going to be called the Trump Super Speedway. It never manifested.
Twitter had some thoughts:

Put on his propaganda show, had no interest in the event itself. His believers are so stupid, he doesn’t need to put in a full appearance. They’ll swear he was there till the end anyway. By next month, he’ll say he drove the winning car, and they’ll swear that’s what they saw.

He had no interest in the event itself, just wanted the publicity from being there for his re-election campaign and to avoid having to do actual Presidential work

He just showed up long enough to have his limo drive fast around the track, while he went “zoom! zoom! zoom!” in the back seat.
I’m not joking. https://t.co/JQmIwrhAZT

Someone hates #NASCAR but wants to pretend to care… He only care about staying out of prison. Job growth is LESS than the last 3 years of Obama, market inflated by a tax cut for the rich and companies buying their own stocks. While the 99% continue to press on with less. https://t.co/H1M90WwpXO
