Trump to deliver commencement address at Liberty University

“The more that a broken system tells you that you’re wrong, the more certain you must be that you must keep pushing ahead”, added Trump, who often complains about being underestimated during the presidential campaign.”No one has ever achieved anything significant without a chorus of critics explaining why it can’t be done”, the president said.”Nothing is easier or more pathetic than being a critic”. “You will build a future where we have the courage to chase our dreams no matter what the cynics and the doubters say”.Students were not the only ones who looked forward to Trump’s words of encouragement, as Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr., extended his invitation for Trump to speak at his institution’s graduation ceremony the month after he won the election previous year.The president of what heralds itself as the world’s largest Christian university, who declared during the 2016 presidential election that he was “convinced” that Donald Trump is a Christian, conferred an honorary doctorate upon the nation’s leader on Saturday during his visit as commencement speaker.Trump, in an apparent warning to his fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director, said Friday, May 12, 2017, that James Comey had better hope there are no “tapes” of their conversations.”But here we are celebrating together on this very joyous occasion”, Trump said to the crowd.President Donald Trump is offering simple words of advice to university graduates: Follow your convictions, prepare to face criticism, and relish the opportunity to be an “outsider”. “Never stop fighting for what you believe in and for the people who care about you”.Christian conservatives have been overjoyed by Trump’s appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, along with Trump’s choice of socially conservative Cabinet members and other officials, such as Charmaine Yoest, a prominent anti-abortion activist named to the Department of Health and Human Services.Trump’s commencement speaking schedule is slightly less busy than that of first-year President Obama in 2009.But they had a mixed response to an executive order on religious liberty Trump signed last week directing the IRS to ease up on enforcing a rarely enforced limit on partisan political activity by churches.Falwell said he’s pleased with Trump’s performance so far.One of President Trump’s trademark Twitter hashtags is seen at Liberty University’s commencement ceremony Saturday in Lynchburg, Va.Lanora Hale came from Millville, N.J., to watch her son graduate with a master’s degree. “People gotta give him a chance”, Hale said.”I really am glad that he’s putting God back into everything”, she said. “And then I’d like him to tell them what he needs them to do to help him make America great again”.The address also appeared to connect religion to the president’s willingness to increase military action in the Middle East, such as dropping the MOAB bomb on Afghanistan. But he said it’s “early to say” what to make of Trump’s unconventional presidency.
