President Trump Delivers Commencement Address at Naval Academy's Graduation in Maryland

Donald Trump Says ‘Our Ancestors Tamed a Continent' and ‘We Are Not Going to Apologize for America’

"We'll have by far the most powerful nuclear force on Earth, and it'll be absolutely in flawless shape and condition", Mr. Trump told the sailors on the ship that day.

"Our economy is the strongest it's ever been and our country has regained the respect that we used to have long ago overseas", he said in the commencement speech in Annapolis, Maryland. "We've recovered our stride", Trump said, adding that "yes, they are respecting us again" and "yes, America is back". We are going to stand up for America. Trump spoke to the Coast Guard Academy's graduating cadets the week before.

"Odder still is POTUS here has a legitimate thing to boast about - 2018 brings the biggest military pay raise (2.4%) in 8 years", Tapper noted, before observing that if Trump had told the truth "that would be acknowledging Obama gave a bigger pay raise in 2010". We are going to stand up for America. Trump told the graduates that "we have begun the great rebuilding of the USA military".

Trump delivered the commencement speech in Annapolis a day after highlighting American military preparedness as he canceled a planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. "And when did we need it more than now? We'll see what happens", Trump said. "And if a fight must come there is no other alternative: Victory, winning, handsome words, but that's what it's all about".

The final false claim was also particularly vexing to Tapper, because, as he noted, Trump actually had a lot to brag about if he was just willing to keep his facts straight.

During a commencement speech Friday at the Naval Academy, President Donald Trump stumbled into the tangled web of enunciation.

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

"Winning is such a great feeling isn't it?"

Speaking to roughly 1,000 graduates at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md., Trump said his efforts have boosted the nation's prestige in the eyes of the world.
