'America is back,' President Trump tells Naval Academy grads

Trump repeatedly knocked former President Obama as he spoke to the 1,042 graduating midshipmen along with family and guests at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium Friday morning. "In recent years, the problem grew worse".

President Trump delivered a commencement address at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland Friday, declaring to the graduating class that "America is back" and "respected again" on the global stage.

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.

"You are now leaders of the most power and righteous forces on the face of the planet, the United States Military", he said. "We are not going to apologize for America, we are going to stand up for America".

Asked if North Korea is playing games - the North Koreans failed to meet an advance team from the U.S.in Singapore, and weren't picking up the phone recently - Mr. Trump said "everyone plays games".

Amid full-throated patriotism, Trump squeezed in a few asides about his effort to launch "the great rebuilding" of the military. "We have rediscovered our identity, regained our stride and we're proud again", Trump said.

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

The president also said First Lady Melania Trump is doing well, after spending most of last week in the hospital after a kidney procedure. "A growing number used their platforms to. weaken America's pride". He applauded his push for the "largest-ever" military budget, which he said would lead to "the strongest military that we have ever had. We know the best way to prevent war is to be fully prepared for war". I represented you well.

The president surprised the graduates by remaining until he had shaken the hands of each one.
