President Donald Trump is telling graduates of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy that no other politician has been treated more unfairly by the media. But he says, “you cannot let them get you down.”
Trump is offering his advice at the academy’s commencement in Connecticut, telling the graduates that they will find that “things are not always fair.” But Trump says, “you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight.”
The president says they can’t let the critics get in the way of their dreams.
Trump was speaking amid reports that he appealed to then FBI Director James Comey to shut down the bureau’s investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn earlier this year.
He made no mention of Comey in his speech.
