As we told you last night, Bloomberg reported that the Trump campaign “lined up” convicted rapist and former heavyweight champion boxer Mike Tyson to appear at the GOP convention in Cleveland:
Rape conviction? No problem! Team Trump reportedly wants Mike Tyson at GOP convention https://t.co/8FtYoYE0G3

Donald Trump took to Twitter a few hours later to slam the report saying, “the media makes everything up!”
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!

Jennifer Jacobs, co-author of the Bloomberg piece, stands behind her report:
Thanks for answering us on that. Your team asked him to appear, as we reported, but you don't want him on stage? https://t.co/c3CItA0w1G

So, Tyson is not “speaking” at the convention … but was he invited to appear at the convention?
