40,000 Boy Scouts chant “We Love Trump”, then BOO Obama
President Donald Trump was received with vigorous enthusiasm by a crowd estimated at over 40,000 Boy Scouts at the 2017 National Jamboree in West Virginia.
A boisterous chorus of “U-S-A, U-S-A”, greeted President Trump as he took the stage.
“You can do anything”, the President told the scouts. “You can be anything you want to be, but in order to succeed you must find out what you love to do. You have to find your passion.”
A bit of off script ad libbing by the president led to an electric moment where the enormous crowd spontaneously began to chant in unison, “We love Trump! We love Trump!”
Trump asked the scouts if President Obama had ever attended a jamboree. “NO!”, they answered, and began to loudly boo the former president. In 2010 Barack Obama decided to skip the Boy Scout Jamboree, choosing instead to leave town to join the ladies of ‘The View’ in Manhattan. Obama did send a video message to be played at the 2010 jamboree. The message wasn’t well received. The scouts booed Obama when the video message was played. Seven years later, patriotic boy scouts still feel no differently about Barack Obama.
WOW! 40,000 Boy Scouts show up to see most historic President in decades. Shouting "We love Trump!" and booing Obama. Smart kids. ??#MAGA?? pic.twitter.com/JXnx4J39vw
