President Donald Trump delivered the commencement address at the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut on Wednesday. During his speech he told the graduates that they must always fight, never give up, and always give their best. He then used his own life’s example to give them some inspiration – by pointing out that no politician has ever faced the difficulties that he was facing.
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. 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. Things will work out just fine…
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.
I guess that’s why I won — thank you. I guess that’s why we won.
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.
