As the crisis surrounding his presidency grows in Washington, D.C. Presdident Donald Trump told the graduating class at the United States Coast Guard Academy to “never, never, never give up.”
“You will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve and that are not always warranted, but you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. Never, ever, ever give up.”
The remarks seem to be in reference to the growing controversies dogging the White House including the firing of FBI Director James Comey and whether Pres. Trump revealed classified information to the Russian Foreign Minister during an Oval Office visit.
In his remarks the President seemed to take aim at the way he has been treated, especially by the media.
“Look at the way I've been treated lately. Especially by the media. No politician in history, and I say this with great charity, has been treated worse or more unfairly.”
But he said critics and naysayers should never get in the way of your dreams.
"Adversity makes your 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 most opposition you will face,"
Trump also spoke about his upcoming trip to the Middle East and that he will challenge Muslim leaders to fight terrorism.
“I’ll ask them to unite for a future of peace and opposition for our peoples and the peoples of the world. First, in Saudi Arabia, where I’ll speak with Muslim leaders and challenge them to fight hatred and extremism and embrace a peaceful future for their faith. And they are looking very much forward to hearing what we, as your representative, we have to say. We have to stop radical Islamic terrorism.”
