Trump talks to Naval Academy grads on how to pronounce Nevada

President Trump delivered a commencement address at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, on Friday.

In a scathing op-ed written for the Baltimore Sun, USNA graduates Daniel Barkhuff and William Burke write about men who are true profiles in courage who could give Navy grads real advice on their future careers - and they contrast them unfavorably with Trump. There is no sea the Navy can't courageous and there is no storm the American sailor can't conquer.

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

Trump arrived at the stadium after his helicopter circled it, a flyover that was followed early in the ceremony by another from the Blue Angels squadron. Trump is traveling to Annapolis, Md., to address the U.S. Naval Academy graduation ceremonies.

He pointed to boosts to U.S. military pay, the near-completion of the US' largest aircraft carrier and the building of new United States submarines.

"We have become a lot stronger lately", Trump declared to wild applause, adding "We are not going to apologize for America".

Trump will give the commencement speech in Annapolis Friday, 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?" "Yes, they are respecting us again". "Yes, they're respecting us again - Yes, America is back". It could even be the 12th (of June).

The president did not specifically discuss two regions of the world where USA foreign policy has shifted recently: the Middle East and the Korean Peninsula. "We're going to see what happens". That money will be used in part, Trump said, to grow the USA fleet closer to his goal of 355 ships, up from the current count of about 280. "America is back", he said.
