President Donald Trump will give the commencement address at the U.S. Naval Academy in late May, he announced on twitter Friday morning.
So exciting! I have agreed to be the Commencement Speaker at our GREAT Naval Academy on May 25th in Annapolis, Maryland. Looking forward to being there.

Trump previously delivered the commencement address at the U.S. Coast Guard academy in 2017. Vice President Mike Pence delivered the 2017 commencement address at the naval academy while Trump was attending the G7 conference in Italy.
At the coast guard commencement Trump declared “Adversity makes you stronger. Don’t give in, don’t back down, and never stop doing what you know is right. Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy, and the more righteous your fight, the more opposition that you will face.”
Then secretary of homeland security John Kelly also infamously joked that Trump could use a sword he was presented with on the media at the event.
