Trump heralds United States military in Naval Academy commencement address

Trump heralds United States military in Naval Academy commencement address

The president promised to shake the hands of every Naval Academy graduate following his speech.

Obviously zinging his predecessor's infamous policy of apologizing and appeasement, the president spoke about the "cynics and critics who try to tear down America", noting that the "problem grew worse" in recent years.

Before traveling to Annapolis Friday morning to speak at the commencement ceremony for the U.S. Naval Academy, President Trump said the summit with North Korea could still happen June 12.

The president began his commencement address by praising the graduates' diligence and patriotism, in a speech that seemed to largely stick to the script. "No more apologies.' Trump said that America has 'regained the respect that we used to have long ago abroad" under his leadership in remarks that were targeted at former President Barack Obama. A lot. We are not going to apologize for America. Trump repeatedly warned Thursday the US military would be ready if Kim reacted "foolishly" and the region returned to heightened tensions. He applauded his push for the "largest-ever" military budget, which he said would lead to "the strongest military that we have ever had".




In a scathing op-ed written for the Baltimore Sun, USNA graduates Daniel Barkhuff and William Burke write about men who are true profiles in courage who could give Navy grads real advice on their future careers - and they contrast them unfavorably with Trump. "We have rediscovered our identity, regained our stride and we're proud again", Trump said. "And when did we need it more than now?" Last year, Trump addressed the Coast Guard Academy.

"Let me take a guess you're still not exhausted of winning".

"The best way to prevent war is to be fully prepared for war", said Trump, hoping that the grads would never have to use their "beautiful, new, powerful equipment".

"I'll stay, I'll stay", the president said, responding to the applause from the audience.
