Especially by the media.

"No politician in history ... has been treated worse or more unfairly".

"You can't let them get you down", Trump continued. "You can't let them get you down", he said.

The audience broke into applause.

"I didn't get elected to serve the Washington media or special interests", Trump said.

Ryan also insisted the Trump controversies were not paralysing Republican legislative efforts in Congress.

The US Justice Department, in the face of rising pressure from Capitol Hill, has named former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US election and possible collusion between President Donald Trump's campaign and Moscow.

During Wednesday's commencement ceremony, Trump was seated near Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy.

Trump also praised the newly minted Coast Guard officers, emphasizing that they will be an asset as new members of the USA military to his efforts to protect the homeland, protect US harbors and seas from drug smuggling and human trafficking, and keep out "all who seek to do harm to our country". I guess that's why I want to thank you. They're out there fighting. You police the arteries we need to rebuild this country and to bring prosperity back to our heartland.

"The fact we are now looking at a special prosecutor, who is widely regarded as an independent figure, to be leading this investigation will calm a lot of fears, particularly felt very strongly among Democrats at the moment".

Malloy said after the event his exchanges with the president were pleasant, if perfunctory. I've loosened up the strangling environmental chains wrapped around our country and our economy - chains so tight that you couldn't do anything, that jobs were going down.

Stunning. Trump to Coast Guard grads: "Life is not always fair..."

"It's unbelievable to think of the adventures that are about to begin for you", Trump said.

"Rather than focus entirely on, say, the graduates in front of him, or on that which they will be doing now that they've graduated, Trump claimed yet again that the media and pretty much everyone else is out to get him", Bipartisan Report commented.

Trump is scheduled to give the commencement address for the newest crop of soon-to-be commissioned Coast Guard officers.

"Good choice, good choice", he added.

"You have done unbelievable work and in the true Coast Guard fashion, you had fewer people and fewer resources, but you accomplished the objective and you did it with skill and with pride", Trump said.

"You'll bring law and order to the risky waters, as boating officers", Trump said. And you are deployed in support of operations in theaters of conflict all around the world.

"We have out-muscled the Air Force Academy, West Point and Annapolis, because we have landed our commander-in-chief to preside at this day's commencement", Zukunft said.

HORSLEY: The president offered similar words of wisdom over the weekend to graduates at Liberty University, but today's remarks were weighted down by a greater sense of grievance. As Trump was speaking, about 250 protesters gathered in a park just outside the academy.
