Daughter of Immigrants Finds Inspiration in Trump’s Speech to Boy Scouts

WASHINGTON — When President Donald Trump tried anew to reach out to young people following his much criticized speech to the Boy Scouts this week, his words connected with a daughter of Nigerian immigrants sitting in the crowd.

Trump congratulated the high school-aged participants in the American Legion Auxiliary Girls Nation and American Legion Boys Nation leadership programs on their scholastic achievements.

“Never quit. Never give up — always do what you love,” the president told the gathering in the Rose Garden on Wednesday.

“He believes in us and all the work that we put our hearts to,” Osaretin Ogbeide said.
