Fox News' Pete Hegseth on Thursday spoke at the fourth annual Turning Point USA Student Action Summit, which is being live-streamed on Fox Nation through Saturday. 

The summit has brought together prominent conservative activists and students in West Palm Beach, Florida. About 5,000 student activists will have the opportunity hear from a powerful lineup of speakers, including Fox News and Fox Nation's own Hegseth, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Greg Gutfeld and Jesse Watters.

In a rousing speech, Hegseth ran down some of President Trump's most notable accomplishments on the cultural front, particularly his "war on political correctness," his criticism of the mainstream media's coverage and how he has taught conservatives "how to fight and how to win."

"Don't back down on political correctness, please," Hegseth said. "He's created that moment. We must stick with it."

As for Trump's criticism of the media, Hegseth said many in the press lean to the left, and it's very obvious in their negative coverage of the administration. He argued that Trump "is the only one who can stand up" against the biased coverage. 

He concluded that Trump has shown conservatives that they must stand up for their beliefs, whether it's American exceptionalism, the national anthem, the flag or saying "Merry Christmas."

"Don't back away," Hegseth said. "God bless you. Keep up this fight. Do not back down, ever."

The remaining lineup of speakers includes Laura Ingraham, Katie Pavlich, Kayleigh McEnany, Lisa Boothe and Sara Carter on Friday and Mark Levin, Greg Gutfeld and Tucker Carlson on Saturday.
