Trump to Naval Academy grads: ‘America is back’

Trump shakes ‘1,100 and something’ hands at Naval Academy graduation

President Trump said Friday he would stay for “hours” to shake hands with all graduating seniors at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.

Trump closed his address to graduates by asking them to weigh in on whether or not he should stay.

“I was given an option. I could make this commencement address, which is a great honor for me, and immediately leave and wave goodbye. Or I could stay and shake hands with just the top 100. Or I could stay for hours and shake hands with 1,100 and something. What should I do? What should I do?” he jokingly posed to the crowd that chanted, “Stay.”

“Ok, I’ll stay,” he declared.

Trump delivered a triumphant speech during the ceremony, saying, “We are not going to apologize for America. 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.”
