Never Ever Quit, Trump Tells Graduates

United States President Donald Trump called on graduating seniors to resist the urge to quit and to ignore their critics as he delivered the commencement address at Liberty University, the nation’s largest Christian 

“It’s been a little over a year since I’ve spoken on your beautiful campus and so much has changed…. I am, standing before you as president of the United States, so I’m guessing there are some people here today who thought that either one of those things…. would really require major help from God,” Trump said to cheers.
Trump peppered his remarks with the kind of anti-establishment rhetoric that fueled his maverick presidential campaign, telling graduates to challenge critics and a “broken system.”
He thanked the crowd for their support and repeatedly invoked his own unlikely election victory.
“Relish the opportunity to be an outsider,” Trump said. “The more that a broken system tells you that you’re wrong, the more certain you should be that you must keep pushing ahead.”
Liberty’s president Jerry Falwell, Jr. was a key early supporter of Trump during his campaign and helped rally support among religious conservatives.

Trump, who has been preparing for his first foreign trip to the Middle East and Europe late next week, also will deliver the commencement address to the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, on Wednesday.
