President Trump was joined by NASCAR guests at the White House today, including driver Martin Truex Jr., the 2017 champion.
During Trump's speech, honoring the NASCAR champion and organization, Trump managed to get in a jab at the NFL.
President Donald Trump appeared to criticize the NFL during a White House speech honoring NASCAR driver Martin Truex Jr.'s 2017 championship season.
Truex, 37, won eight total races during the season, qualified for the "chase" playoff schedule and won the final race at Homestead which earned him the Monster Energy Cup Series title.
Trump praised Truex, his longtime partner Sherry Pollex and crew chief Cole Pearn on their season that culminated with the Ocean County, N.J. native taking home the trophy.
Without mentioning the league by name, Trump said Truex and NASCAR CEO Brian France should be proud that fans "do indeed stand for the playing of our national anthem."]
President Trump was presented with a replica NASCAR helmet.
