I would assume it's pro-Trump: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Varvel

Clearly the correct way is at a 90 degree angle to them both.

To Obama's right economically and to Trump's left socially.

Based on the configuration of most running tracks I have ever seen, Obama is the one going in the right direction.

That's just what the mainstream media wants you to think. Just because something is contradictory, it must be right. Free your mind sheeple!

Obama was running to pass the baton to Hillary, but Trump came out of nowhere and snatched the baton away from him.

Yup. I've never seen a track that doesn't go counterclockwise.

My son races in Track and Field events - I looked up the question: Live Science

It's believed to be easier for righties, who make up the majority of world population, to run in a counterclockwise motion. Putting their right foot forward and leaning into a turn feels more comfortable and provides more power and balance than the reverse direction, say physicists.

Going counterclockwise just looks more natural, with runners passing the observer in the way most people, and especially the folks in charge of track and field regulations, read and organize chronological time (that's left-to-right, if you're in need of a visual). Needing to choose one for the sake of standardizing international competitions, counterclockwise got the collective nod.

Counter clockwise is the way of the establishment.
