A leading US political commentator has defended Donald Trump as he continues to weather criticism over a speech made to 40,000 Boy Scouts on Monday.
The US President caused a stir when speaking at the National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, when he said he wouldn't speak about politics but ended up blasting the "fake news media" and Barack Obama.
He also made reference to the "swamp" which was Washington D.C, saying he now wants to call it a "cesspool."
Charlie Wolf, a US political commentator, dismissed this.
He told Julia Hartley-Brewer: "I don't think that saying Obama wasn’t at a Scout Jamboree is putting down his predecessor politically.
"It was a good laugh and you could see everyone was enjoying themselves."
Wolf defended the President when Julia said his main role as a Trump supporter was to apologise for him.
He told our host: "What do I have to be defending? Everything’s fine, it’s just the histrionics going on here from the media and philistines of the world.
"I don’t know what this line is about, what’s supposed to be presidential or what’s not.
"He’s the president. He sets what is presidential."
