Trump gets hero’s welcome at Miami Grand Prix, says he was ‘lucky charm’ for Formula One winner


Former President Donald Trump was a “lucky charm” according to Lando Norris who won the first race of his Formula One career on Sunday.

Trump attended the Miami Grand Prix at the Miami International Autodrome and congratulated the 24-year-old McLaren driver after meeting with McLaren CEO Zak Brown where he also met with F1 chief executive Stefano Domenicali and FIA president Mohammed ben Sulayem.

“He saw me after and he came up to congratulate me so I guess it’s an honor,” Norris told Daily Mail Sport.

“Whenever you have someone like this come up to you to take time out of their life to pay their respect for what you’ve done … it has to be an honor,” he added.

Norris expressed that meeting the presumptive 2024 Republican nominee was a “cool moment” and that he was ‘a “lucky charm.”

“I don’t know if he’s going to come to more races now,” he joked.

“But there’s a lot of special, cool people that have been here this weekend. Donald is someone that you’ve got to have a lot of respect for in many ways and for anyone like that who acknowledge what you can go out and do, and the work ethic that goes into things, you’ve got to be thankful for that,” he told the outlet.

Trump posted about the race on Truth Social.

“It was a great honor to see my friends at McLaren win the big Miami Formula 1 race. It was the car I visited before the race, and Endorsed—that’s what we need for our Country—WINNING!” he wrote Sunday.

He also shared a few posts from the race and the resounding welcome he received.

Trump was busy on his social media account as the Formula 1 race took place, railing against the unfair treatment he’s been given by the legal system and posting over 30 messages in about an hour before celebrating the race.

He began by calling out “Gavin Newscum,” a moniker he has dubbed California’s Democratic governor, calling him out for refusing to “recognize that Republicans are the Leaders on I.V.F.”

He also added several quotes from legal analysts and others like Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley as well as U.S. Republican Reps. Jim Jordan, Nicole Malliotakis, and Jeff Van Drew.
