Pressure Builds To Dump Trump As Indy Pace Car Driver
Fall-out is building from the tarnishing of the Trump brand, as social media sites are being used to surge Indianapolis 500 officials to fire Donald Trump as a pace car river in the upcoming race. A Facebook page to that effect sprung up with 7500 supporters.
“Driving the pace car should not be used as a sound board for some terrible businessman to spew his political aspirations,” said racing fan Chris Hughes, Indianapolis. “Especially with this being the 100th anniversary.”
…”We are certainly aware of the Facebook page, and we have certainly received complaints,” said IMS spokesman Doug Boles. “But we have also received comments from other folks in support of Donald Trump driving the pace car.
“We are monitoring the situation; it’s on our radar, and we are taking a look at it.”
The Baptist Ministers Alliance of Indianapolis and Vicinity is calling for rescinding the Trump invitation, saying they are concerned about the petulant, poisonous and racist remarks” Trump has made.Click here for reuse options!
