More than a thousand students graduated from the Naval Academy this year. But in recent years, the problem grew worse.

They go on to list other courageous actions taken by Naval Academy graduates over the years - and then compare them with the actions taken by Trump, who was busy at the time cheating on his three wives and being a reality TV game show host. A lot. We are not going to apologize 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".

"Together you are the tip of the spear, the edge of the blade and the front of the shield defending and protecting our great country", Trump said. "We're respected again", the commander-in-chief said.

"We are respected again, I can tell you that", said Trump, hailing the Navy's ability to vanquish all enemies. Trump told the graduates that "we have begun the great rebuilding of the USA military". "A growing number used their platforms to. weaken America's pride".

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 (kim jawng oon).

The president also touted his administration's work in securing $700 billionfor our nation's "war fighters", and said we will have the strongest military ever. Trump spoke to the Coast Guard Academy's graduating cadets the week before.

"The best way to prevent war is to be fully prepared for war", said Trump, hoping that the grads would never have to use their "beautiful, new, powerful equipment". "I fought for you", the president said.

Mr. Trump said he was given the option of leaving immediately after the ceremony, or staying to shake hands with all the graduates.
