WATCH LIVE: President Trump Hosts NASCAR Champion Martin Truex Jr. and Team

NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series champion Martin Truex Jr. and his team are being hosted at the White House today by President Trump.

It was just three years ago during the campaign that a minor tiff between NASCAR and Trump briefly broke out during the campaign, but the President praised NASCAR last year over its response to national anthem protests.

Per NBC Sports, this is the Trump’s first White House visit from a NASCAR champ, and he may very well welcome it today as a distraction from some other big news items.
