Last night thousands of boy scouts gathered at the National Jamboree in West Virginia. It was an enormous crowd of nearly 40,000. During it, President Trump rips Obama and the scouts chant "We love Trump!"
Trump let the crowd know how many times Barack Obama attended a National Jamboree. Spoiler alert: it was less times than President Trump. The crowd didn't like that, but soon after they started chanting "We love Trump! We love Trump!"
It was an incredible event for all who attended. Look at some of the reactions.

This amazing moment was caught on video when one of the scouts screamed, "I love you!" to President Trump. What an exciting moment for this young man.
Check out the awesome video.
The president showed his appreciation for the event by tweeting more video from the experience he had with the Boy Scouts of America.

Disgustingly, the Boy Scouts of America had to defend their decision even invite Trump. The organization released a statement. It in, they said it's "wholly nonpartisan and does not promote any one position, product, service, political candidate or philosophy."
"The invitation for the sitting U.S. President to visit the National Jamboree is a long-standing tradition and is in no way an endorsement of any political party of specific policies," the organization said, according to NBC News.
"The sitting U.S. President serves as the BSA's honorary president. It is our long-standing custom to invite the U.S. President to the National Jamboree."
What an awesome experience for all involved. The mainstream media will try to tear it down and discredit President Trump, like they always do, but clearly this was a great moment for these young men.
President Trump jokingly asked if President Obama ever came to a jamboree. The left will be up in arms about this, but the questions remains...why did Barack Obama never attend the National Jamboree?
