    “White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany denied during Monday’s briefing that President Donald Trump was defending the Confederate flag but would not say that he condemns it either. Reporters repeatedly asked McEnany to decipher a tweet from the president that called on Black NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace to “apologize” for what he deemed a hate-crime “hoax,” adding, “That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!” NASCAR’s ratings have actually increased since banning the Confederate flag at races last month.” https://www.thedailybeast.com/kayleigh-mcenany-suggests-trump-is-neutral-on-confederate-flag
