President Trump spoke at the United States Coast Guard Academy graduation on Wednesday, referencing the ongoing controversy over his firing of FBI chief James Comey and slamming the media over its lopsided coverage of his presidency.
The President was addressing students and their families at the ceremony in New London, CT when he offered words of advice to the new graduates.
“Now I want to take this opportunity to give you some advice. Over the course of your life, you will find that things are not always fair, that things happen to you that you do not deserve and that are not always warranted,” said Trump. “But you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. Never, ever, ever give up, things will work out just fine.”
“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media. No politician in history -I say this with great surety- has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down,” added the President.
The President then pledged to continue his work on behalf of the American people despite the liberal media’s opposition.
“Adversity makes you stronger. Don’t give in, don’t back down, and never stop doing what you know is right. Nothing worth doing, ever, ever, ever came easy. And the more righteous your fight, the more opposition that you will face,” he said.
“I’ve accomplished a tremendous amount in a very short time as President,” Trump added.
“Jobs are pouring back in to our country, a brand new Supreme Court Justice is going to be fantastic for 45 years, a historic investment in our military, border crossings are down more than 70% in just a short period of time.”
