President Donald Trump to Liberty University Graduates: “To the class of 2017 today you end one chapter, but you are about to begin the greatest adventure of your life. With all of those blessings, and all of the blessings that you’ve been given, what will you give back to this country? And indeed, to the world?”
He urged graduates to “never give up” and to find the courage to challenge the status quo. According to Trump, “In my short time in Washington, I’ve seen firsthand how the system is broken,” he said. “A small group of failed voices, who think they know everything …want to tell everybody else how to live.”
President Trump Urges Graduates to Live Out Their Faith
“But you aren’t going to let other people tell you what to believe, especially when you know that you’re right. … We don’t need a lecture from Washington on how to lead our lives.” He also assured the students that they could live out their faith without any fear of being criticized for their beliefs.
Trump joins a long list of presidents who have spoken at a college graduation ceremony during their first year in office. Past presidents normally take the opportunity to speak at the University of Notre Dame.
