US President Donald Trump addresses the US Naval Academy graduating class

"I fought for you", said Trump of the raises.

The President was warmly received at the Academy, where graduates and their families gathered at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

This marked Trump's first time speaking to the academy's graduating class.

"We'll see what happens", Mr. Trump said. Trump is traveling to Annapolis, Md., to address the U.S. Naval Academy graduation ceremonies. "He is a physical coward, a liar and no leader at all".

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

"You are now leaders of the most power and righteous forces on the face of the planet, the United States Military", he said. "And when did we need it more than now?"

"We are witnessing the great reawakening of the American Spirit and of American might". That money will be used in part, Trump said, to grow the USA fleet closer to his goal of 355 ships, up from the current count of about 280.

"Let me take a guess you're still not exhausted of winning".

At the conclusion of his remarks, Trump said that he planned to remain at the graduation to shake each graduate's hand. "And if a fight must come there is no other alternative: Victory, winning, handsome words, but that's what it's all about".

The class of 2018 includes 283 Naval aviators, 134 submariners, 256 surface warfare officers, 70 restricted line officers, 15 explosive ordinance disposal officers, 236 Marines and 35 "very tough, very well-conditioned" Navy SEALs, Mr. Trump said.
