The King has chosen sides in the 2016 Presidential race, and it’s great news for Donald Trump.
At a Tuesday evening campaign event in Greenville, North Carolina, a state Trump must win to have any shot at defeating Hillary Clinton, retired NASCAR legend Richard Petty took the podium to explain the rationale behind his decision.
“Look how many jobs Mr. Trump has created over his career,” Petty pointed out, “so he knows how to do that.”
Like many Americans, the North Carolina native and owner of Richard Petty Motorsports just wants to “get the government out of our business … I don’t want them coming in and telling me how to run my race operation.”
Petty also considers Trump’s position on immigration a “good idea,” pointing especially to securing our border with a wall.
“If you want to build a wall y’all can all volunteer and we’ll all go down and build the wall, OK? I’m for the wall, that’s for sure,” Petty said. “What about the people who come in and do what’s right in order to be citizens of the United States?”
