McEnany went on to repeat similar talking points throughout the rest of the briefing, arguing that the President's tweet was meant to defend NASCAR men and women who are being accused of being racist, to point out that the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not find a hate crime against Wallace and that it did "not indicate approval or disapproval of that particular policy at NASCAR".
The investigation by both the racing organization and the FBI found proof the garage pull rope had been fashioned in that knot for months, long before Wallace had been assigned that garage.
Wallace released a statement on Twitter Monday afternoon addressing the situation, saying, "Always deal with the hate being thrown at you with LOVE!"
NASCAR recently had announced that the display of Confederate flag, which celebrates the 11 Southern states that seceded from the United States in the 1860s in support of slavery, "will be prohibited from all" its events and properties. Trump added an assertion that the Wallace incident combined with NASCAR's ban on the Confederate flag at its races have led to historically low television ratings for the stock-car circuit.
NASCAR president Steve Phelps has bristled at suggestions the noose was a hoax.
"The idea that Bubba Wallace, who is the only, I think, African American driver was upset by somebody finding a noose in the garage made ideal sense to me".

It said results from these studies have been promising and show extensive safety and effective immune responses. In rabbits, up to three times the intended human dose was found to be safe, well tolerated and immunogenic.
Wallace has said in multiple interviews that he agrees with the findings that the noose - which was real - was not formed in a hate crime towards him.
White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said the president had tweeted to make "a broader point that this rush to judgement on the facts before the facts are out is not acceptable".
Tyler Reddick, a rookie who drives for Richard Childress, tweeted but later deleted a reply to Trump that read: "We don't need an apology". In February, he appeared at the season-opening Daytona 500 and took a lap around the track in the presidential limo.
One dissenting voice was that of former newspaper editor and current TV presenter Piers Morgan, who tweeted his former friend and accused him of race-baiting.
"A picture is worth a thousand words", Murstein said in a statement. "You saw the best in NASCAR". "Bubba has reacted in a truthful, professional, level headed manner. We were proud to see so many stand up for what's right". "The president's comments are essentially a rallying call for people who support the Confederate flag to challenge the sport's recent flag ban and create chaos".
