Sooooo you think it's just a coincidence there was a RECORD BREAKING ATTENDANCE - the year PRESIDENT Trump was there?
Yeah, go on thinking that, lol.
Was Trump a scout?

Why does the crowd size and reaction even matter?
I was active in scouting until I turned 18 obtaining the rank of Eagle Scout. I was at the 2005 Jamboree when Bush spoke. I'm well aware that many scouts come from Right Wing backgrounds. Regardless, even if every scout there was a card carrying member of the Young Republicans it doesn't change the fact that the BSA are a non-political organization.
The Jamboree is no place for political grandstanding.
To be frank, I can’t find any evidence that he was, or he wasn’t. But if I had to guess, no, Donald Trump was not a Boy Scout. Growing up in the milieu he did, it’s not likely. Billionaires don’t usually send their sons off packing without a helicopter backup.
