The 20 Worst Political Scandals In History

WASHINGTON D.C. — In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, President Trump said the head of the Boy Scouts called him to tell him that the speech he gave at the organization's National Jamboree in West Virginia was "the greatest speech that was ever made to them."

The only problem is that the Boy Scouts say the phone call never happened.

"We are unaware of any such call," said the Boy Scouts, in a statement, as reported by the Los Angeles Times. He added specifically that neither of the organization's two leaders, President Randall Stephenson or Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh, had made such a call.

After Trump's speech on July 24, Surbaugh was forced to apologize to anyone in the Boy Scout community who was offended by its level of political rhetoric.

During the speech, Trump criticized former President Barack Obama, his former political opponent, Hillary Clinton, and the news media.

"I want to extend my sincere apologies to those in our Scouting family who were offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the jamboree," Surbaugh said in a July 27 statement. "That was never our intent."

Surbaugh added that over the years, people have asked the Scouts to take positions on political issues, but they have steadfastly refused.

"We sincerely regret that politics were inserted into the Scouting program," Surbaugh said.

Responding to Trump's claim about the non-existent phone call, the Boy Scout organization said Surbaugh's message "speaks for itself," a report by TIME said.
