After a fresh round of media attacks against President Donald Trump this week, some might have expected the new POTUS to “pivot toward the center” as he did at times during the 2016 campaign.
In a speech today to cadets at the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut, Trump struck an optimistic and hopeful tone while letting the mainstream media know exactly where things stand.
“You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams,” the President said.
In a passage that was bitterly called “whining” in the liberal press but sounded inspirational to the cheering cadets, Trump reminded his audience that CNN is not the judge and jury of whether or not the country is improving.
“I didn’t get elected to serve the Washington media or special interests….I got elected to serve the forgotten men and women of our country.”
