President Trump Assails Media over Mounting White House Scandals

HeadlineMay 18, 2017
H07 trump

President Trump lashed out at the media Wednesday for the scandals rocking his administration. Trump was speaking at a commencement ceremony at the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut.

President Donald Trump: “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.”

During his speech, President Trump promised graduating Coast Guard cadets he would never stop fighting for them. In fact, Trump has proposed slashing the Coast Guard’s budget by $1.3 billion, or 12 percent.
