Immediately After Giving Naval Academy Graduation Speech, Trump Stuns EVERYONE

On Friday, President Trump gave the commencement address for more than 1,000 military graduates at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. The group repeatedly cheered inside the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium as the president touted the successes of the United States military.

Trump promised to continue building up the military to promote America’s strength across the globe.

“Together, you are the tip of the spear, the edge of the blade, and the front of the shield defending and protecting our great country,” the president said, per Washington Examiner. “There is no issue our pilots can’t handle, no hill our Marines can’t take, and there is no stronghold the SEALs can’t breach. There is no sea the Navy can’t brave, and there is no storm the American sailor can’t conquer.”

“You know that together, there is nothing Americans can’t do. Absolutely nothing,” Trump said. “Together we struggled, together we strive, together we pray, and together we triumph.”

“In case you haven’t noticed, we have become a lot stronger lately,” Trump added, per the Hill. “A lot. We are not going to apologize for America. We are going to stand up for America. No more apologies.”

Here’s more from Washington Examiner:

Trump spent much of his speech lauding the “great rebuilding of the United States military” that has taken place during his administration, noting the increased defense funding he secured earlier this year and the new aircraft carriers and submarines that are being built.

“Yes, they’re respecting us again,” he said. “Yes, America is back.”

And, via the Hill:

The president highlighted the $700 billion approved by Congress this year in defense spending, saying it will help boost the size of the Navy’s fleet to 355, including a new aircraft carrier and submarines.

“No money for the military? Those days are over,” he said.

Trump’s address comes one day after he scrapped a planned nuclear summit with North Korea, raising fears of renewed tensions in the region.

The president told the newly commissioned Navy and Marine Corps officers he hopes they never have to use all their new equipment, but that they must be prepared to defend the country.

After the speech, Trump individually shook the hands of more than 1,000 graduates.
