President Trump delivers commencement speech at US Naval Academy

President Donald Trump shakes hands with a graduating U.S. Naval Academy midshipman during the Academy's graduation and commissioning ceremony, Friday, May 25, 2018, in Annapolis, Md.

There were 1,042 graduates this year.

Speaking to more than 1,000 newly commissioned Navy officers and Marines at Annapolis, the president said the USA has regained respect internationally through its military strength.

The president also said First Lady Melania Trump is doing well, after spending most of last week in the hospital after a kidney procedure.

The 2018 class included 283 Navy aviators, 276 surface warfare officers, 236 Marines, 135 Navy Seals, 70 restricted line officers, and 15 explosive ordinance disposal technicians. "We have rediscovered our identity, regained our stride and we're proud again", Trump said.

"We've gained the respect that we used to have long ago".

"You are now leaders in the most powerful and righteous force on the face of the planet", Trump said.

Speaking to graduates, Trump praised the military, saying of the Navy "you don't give up, you don't give in". "In recent years, the problem grew worse. We'll see what happens", Trump said. We are going to stand up for America. We are going to stand up for America.

On Twitter Friday, Trump said he looks "forward to being with some of the greatest people on earth!"

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.

"America is back", Trump told the sea of graduates sitting side by side in blue and white dress uniforms.

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).
