Trump Tells Naval Academy Graduates: 'We're Respected Again'

President Trump touted his administration's push to increase military spending in a commencement address at the Naval Academy on Friday, telling graduating midshipmen that the USA had regained its stride on the world stage.

"You are now leaders of the most power and righteous forces on the face of the planet, the United States Military", he said. "Our country has regained the respect that we used to have long ago overseas, yes they're respecting us again, yes, America is back".

"We'll see what happens. A growing number used their platforms to denigrate America's incredible heritage, challenge America's sovereignty, and weaken America's pride", Trump said.

"We know that the best way to prevent war is to be fully prepared for war and hopefully we never have to use all of this handsome new powerful new equipment", Trump said.

Obviously zinging his predecessor's infamous policy of apologizing and appeasement, the president spoke about the "cynics and critics who try to tear down America", noting that the "problem grew worse" in recent years.

"We are witnessing the great reawakening of the American Spirit and of American might".

Trump praised the military, saying of the Navy "you don't give up, you don't give in".

During his commencement speech in Annapolis, Maryland Friday, the president told the graduating class the great rebuilding of our military is now underway. We are going to stand up for America. No more apologies. We are going to stand up for our citizens. "We are going to stand up for our values, and we are going to stand up for our men and women in uniform".

"Or, I could stay and shake hands with just the top 100".

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

It will mark Trump's first commencement address at the academy. Last year, Trump addressed the Coast Guard Academy.
