Trump: No Politician in History Has Been Treated Worse or More Unfairly
During his commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy on Wednesday, President Donald Trump advised graduates to "fight, fight, fight" in the face of adversity.
"Over the course of your life, you will find that things are not always fair. You will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve and that are not always warranted," Trump said. "But you have to put your head down and fight, fight fight."
He told graduates to never give up, and things will work out in the end.
"Look at the way I've been treated lately, especially by the media," Trump said. "No politician in history - and I say this with great surety - has been treated worse or more unfairly."
He said you simply can't let the critics and naysayers get you down or get in the way of your dreams.
"Adversity makes you stronger," Trump said. "Don't give in. Don't back down. And never stop doing what you know is right."
He added that nothing worth doing ever comes easy, and the more righteous the fight, the stronger the opposition will be.
On "Outnumbered" today, Sandra Smith said Trump's frustration with the media is understandable because reports about President Donald Trump sharing classified intelligence with Russian diplomats and asking then-FBI Director James Comey to shut down the federal investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn have been covered as fact before being proven.
"Everyone is going to such extremes right now, jumping the gun to such an extent that even if there is something there, it will hurt the main point of what's happening," Meghan McCain said.
She said all the anti-Trump media coverage just unites and fires up his supporters.
"If there is something there - which we don't know yet, we don't know - we need to let the legal process play itself out and stop getting so hysterical on national television," McCain said.
