President Donald Trump had a special message for Coast Guard Academy graduates: Don’t let the haters bring you down. He made the commencement speech in Connecticut.
“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media. No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse, or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down. You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams,” said Trump.
“I didn’t get elected to serve the Washington media, or special interests. I got elected to serve the forgotten men and women of our country, and that’s what I’m doing. I will never stop fighting for you and I will never stop fighting for the American people,” he added.
It is the president’s second appearance before graduates this commencement season. Last Saturday, Trump addressed graduates of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
