According to CNN, it wasn’t until several hours and thousands of reactions later that the president’s campaign manager removed the post and put up another with an image of Air Force One flying during Trump’s visit this weekend.

Jonathan Ferrey, the photographer who captured the 2004 photo, told the news network, “I have a lot of talented colleagues photographing the Daytona 500 this year. I am unfortunately not there today, but apparently I won the Daytona 500 photography before the race even started.”
His photo also appeared in a write-up from The Daily Wire on Sunday titled, “Trump Wows Daytona Speedway By Swooping Air Force One Over Race Crowd.” As of Monday morning, the photo is still at the top of that post.
