A report last week said that Trump’s camp was hoping to gather several prominent sports figures to attend the convention on his behalf.
Former NFL coach Mike Ditka, who has voiced support for Trump, also declined an invitation last week.
Mike Tyson and NASCAR exec Brian France were also reported to be attending the event in support of Trump, but a NASCAR spokesman says France has no plans to attend or speak, while Trump denied inviting Tyson at all.
Iron Mike Tyson was not asked to speak at the Convention though I'm sure he would do a good job if he was. The media makes everything up!
