President Trump delivered sage advice to the Coast Guard Academy Class of 2017, to face adversity by never backing down, by never, ever giving up. As an example, he used his own mistreatment by the mainstream media….
“Now I want to take this opportunity to give you some advice. 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. But, you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight!… Never ever, ever give up! Things will work out just fine.
Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media. No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down. You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams. (huge applause).
I guess that’s why we won. Adversity makes you stronger. Don’t give in, don’t back down, and never stop doing what you know is right. Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy, and the more righteous your fight, the more opposition that you will face.”
