President Trump, in a commencement address to the Coast Guard Academy on Wednesday, remained defiant in the face of reports of inappropriate conduct regarding his campaign’s relationship with Russian officials.

Trump advised the cadets that when adversity strikes, “You have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight!”

The president then discussed his public battles with the media as an example.

“No politician in history,” Trump said, speaking of himself, “has been treated worse or more unfairly.”

“You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams,” Trump told the crowd to loud applause. “The more righteous your fight, the more opposition you will face.”

Trump then touted several of his early accomplishments such as economic growth, the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, and border security.

“The people understand what I’m doing and that’s the most important thing,” he said.

“I didn’t get elected to serve the Washington media or special interests,” Trump roared. “I got elected to serve the forgotten men and women of our country, and that’s what I’m doing.”
