LIVE: President Trump Speaks to 40,000 Boy Scouts at National Scout Jamboree

FAYETTE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) — President Donald Trump will visit West Virginia on Monday.

President Trump will be speaking to a group of about 40,000 scouts, leaders, staff and volunteers at the National Boy Scout Jamboree in Fayette County.

He’s expected to speak about 6 p.m. The event is not open to the public.

His visit is coming just days after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was at the Jamboree, where a statue was unveiled in his honor.

President Trump’s visit will be the first time he has been in West Virginia since taking office.

There’s been a long history of president’s visiting the national jamboree. President Trump will become the eighth President to attend. However, it has been twelve years since the latest visit when former President George W. Bush spoke to the scouts in 2005.

WSAZ will provide complete coverage of the President’s visit.

Did you know that each U.S. president serves as honorary president of the Boy Scouts of America?

    After two years our President cna still make me blubber like a little kid. He is, without a doubt one of the best motivational speakers I have ever heard. That group was madly in love with him. Our future may be ok after all!
