President Donald Trump on Friday gave the commencement speech for the U.S. Naval Academy’s graduation ceremony.
Trump started the speech by praising the men and women for choosing the United States Naval Academy, telling the 1,042 grads “you chose the path of hard work, sweat, and sacrifice. You chose the life of honor, courage, and commitment. You chose to serve the nation and defend our great American flag.”
He also cited the nation’s current effort to rebuild the United States military, and added “we are witnessing the great reawakening of the American spirit and of American might,” reports The Atlantic, which transcribed his remarks.
Trump’s speech not only praised the class of 2018 for its impressive accomplishments, but included observances for America’s military heroes, including retelling a story of valor.
