President Trump Thanks Cadets during Coast Guard Commencement Address

President Trump took on his media critics Wednesday toward the end of a commencement address at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, telling the graduating class not to let the “naysayers get in the way of your dreams.”

Trump’s speech at the USCG Academy in New London, Connecticut was his second address of the 2017 graduation season, and his first public appearance since new allegations concerning an alleged Russia probe surfaced.

Trump’s address, thanking the class for their service, also included some “advice,” which echoed the same approach he applied to his campaign and his presidency.

“Over the course of your life, you will find that things are not always fair and 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,” Trump said, saying that “no politician in history has been treated worse or more unfairly” by the media.

“Adversity makes you stronger – don’t give in and don’t back down and never stop doing what you know is right,” Trump said. “Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever comes easy – the more righteous your fight, the more opposition you’ll face.”

The comments come after The New York Times published a report claiming that a memo from James Comey said the president asked the former FBI chief back in February to end the probe of former national security adviser Mike Flynn.

The White House has disputed the report, while opponents have seized on it to bolster calls for a special prosecutor.
