Trump tells Navy grads 'you don't give up'

Trump praised the military, saying of the Navy "you don't give up, you don't give in".

"James Stockdale chose to smash his own face in with a stool rather than give "aid and comfort" to the enemy", they write, describing Stockdale's capture and imprisonment during the Vietnam War.

ORIGINAL POST, 9:34 a.m.: President Donald Trump is set to address the 2018 graduates of the United States Naval Academy.

The president said in a statement that it was a "great honor and pleasure" to deliver remarks to the academy's Class of 2018 today.

Speaking to more than 1,000 newly commissioned Navy officers and Marines at Annapolis, the president said the US has regained respect internationally through its military strength. Mr. Trump is giving the U.S. Naval Academy's commencement speech in Annapolis, Md., Friday morning. "He is a physical coward, a liar and no leader at all". "We have rediscovered our identity, regained our stride and we're proud again", Trump said.

In closing, the president said the graduates now spearhead the most powerful military in the world and at a very crucial time. He added "and when did we ever need it more?" "A growing number used their platforms to denigrate America's incredible heritage, challenge America's sovereignty, and weaken America's pride", Trump said. Trump spoke to the Coast Guard Academy's graduating cadets the week before. "In recent years, the problem grew worse". "We are not going to apologize for America, we are going to stand up for America".

"The best way to prevent war, is to be fully prepared for war", Trump said.

Mr. Trump said he was given the option of leaving immediately after the ceremony, or staying to shake hands with all the graduates.

His speech came a day after he kicked up fears of ratcheting tensions on the Korean peninsula for canceling a diplomatic summit with North Korea's leader scheduled for next month. "Winning, a great feeling, nothing like winning, gotta win", Trump said. I represented you well.
