The Boy Scouts deny Donald Trump’s claims that the head of the organization praised his speech at the jamboree as the “greatest that was ever made before them.”
According to a leaked transcript of Trump’s interview with the Wall Street Journal, he said, “And I got a call from the head of the Boy Scouts saying it was the greatest speech that was ever made to them, and they were very thankful. So there was — there was no mix.”
The Boy Scouts responded to Trump’s claims by telling the AP: “On Wednesday, the Scouts responded, “We are unaware of any such call.” Neither of the organization’s two top leaders — President Randall Stephenson and Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh — had placed such a cal.”
The organization had also publicly apologized for Trump’s politically-charged speech a day later. So, once again, Donald Trump has been caught in yet another lie. What a disgrace.
