President Trump has remained defiant after the onslaught of attacks from the media, especially in this last week where he was falsely accused of leaking classified information to Russia by The Washington Post.
Trump has hit back at the media by saying “no politician in history” has been treated “worse or more unfairly.”
However, he is undeterred and has made it clear nothing will stop him from continuing to fight for the American people.
President Trump used his speech at the Coast Guard Academy’s graduation ceremony to defend himself from charges of corruption, and argue that the national media is out to get him.
“Over the course of your life, you will find that things are not always fair,” Trump said at the ceremony in New London, Connecticut.
“You will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve, and that are not always warranted, but you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight.”
“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media,” Trump said to cheers. “No politician in history … has been treated worse or more unfairly.”
The president’s commencement address on Tuesday was his first public appearance since reports surfaced that suggested he had asked former FBI Director James Comey to abandon an investigation of an associate in February.
Trump faced a deluge of criticism from lawmakers in both parties in the wake of those reports Tuesday evening.
“I didn’t get elected to serve the Washington media or special interests,” Trump said on Wednesday.
“I got elected to serve the forgotten men and women of our country and that’s what I’m doing.”
“I will never stop fighting for you and I will never stop fighting for the American people,” he said.
