Despite the aftermath of the recent mass shooting and the latest developments in the Russian investigation, Donald Trump decided to use his social media account to promote a NASCAR race. After his tweet, the president faced some backlash that he likely wasn't pleased to read.

Trump on NASCAR

It's no secret that Donald Trump has a history of picking and choosing his allegiances.

When it comes to the world of sports, the former host of "The Apprentice" has not been shy about where he stands. Over the last six months, Trump has waged a war with the NFL for allowing players to protest during the playing of the national anthem. Trump has also taken his grudge to the NBA, lashing out at Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry on social media.

Despite this, the president seems excited about a different sport, tweeting out and promoting NASCAR's Daytona 500 on February 18. "My great friends from NASCAR are having their big race today, The Daytona 500.

Brian France and the France family are special people," Trump tweeted, before adding, "Enjoy the race!" As is the case with many of Trump's other posts on social media, the president received a negative response from his critics.

Twitter reaction

Donald Trump's promotion of a NASCAR event on Twitter didn't go over well with the opposition who took the time to give their thoughts.

"What about the kids from Parkland Florida? forgot about them already?" one tweet wondered.

"You rather tweet about NASCAR than condemn Russia.

You have attacked everyone today but Putin," a Twitter user wrote, while also adding, "'March For Our Lives' is March 24th. I hope you attend Mr. Trump! The crowd sizes will be bigger than your inauguration!" "You've already moved on from the Florida school shooting. AMERICANS HAVE NOT! We don't care about your NRA approved responses. We want action," yet another tweet noted.

"You have no friends, just mutual users.

Enjoy it while you can. Going down," a social media user wrote. "I guess everyone needs a long relaxing day of tweeting and TV watching. Even a POTUS under investigation with clearly nothing else to do," a follow-up tweet went on to add. With the Florida shooting still on the minds of millions of Americans, and with the Russian probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller heating up after indicting 13 Russian nationals for meddling in the 2016 election, only time will tell how Trump and the White House responds to the issues at hand.
