President Donald Trump called on NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace to apologize for complaining about a noose-like rope hanging in his garage, which caused a media firestorm last month.

The FBI determined Wallace's claim was not a hate crime.

As NewsThud reported:

The FBI issued a statement earlier Tuesday that the pull rope was simply fashioned like a noose and that video evidence showed it had been hanging in the garage from at least October 2019 when a previous occupier used the space.

“From the evidence that we have — that I have, it’s a straight-up noose,” said Wallace at the time.

Trump said on Twitter that the “noose” incident and Mr. Wallace’s successful effort to get NASCAR to ban the Confederate flag but has “has caused lowest ratings EVER!”

“Has @BubbaWallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX?” the president tweeted.

Wallace reported in June that one of his race team members found a noose tied in his garage bay.

But the FBI determined that the so-called 'noose' was part of a garage-door pull that had been in the garage since at least last October.

Last month, Wallace said he didn't regret his claims.

“At the end of the day, I wouldn’t have changed anything," he said.

“NASCAR, I felt, did the right thing …,” Wallace added.

“It was a noose; everybody has seen the image now.

"So, to say we would go back and do things differently, I don’t think so.

"Maybe word things differently, yes, but I would launch an investigation.”

Wallace also denied the incident was a publicity stunt.

“Let’s get it straight …” he said.

“I don’t need all the fame and all the media hype to create my brand and create my image.

"People that know me, know I’m 100 percent raw and real, and I just go out and give my all on the racetrack.”
