President Trump on Friday gave a triumphant, patriotic speech to 2018 graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy, promising to stand up for the U.S. without apology and hailing what he said was the re-emergence of American confidence since he took office.

Trump repeatedly knocked former President Obama as he spoke to the 1,042 graduating midshipmen along with family and guests at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium Friday morning.

He told graduates that "we have begun the great rebuilding of the USA military".

"These fine sailors have spent the last several years preparing to lead the United States Navy in both times of peace and crisis", said President Trump.

"We are witnessing the great reawakening of the American Spirit and of American might. We're respected again", the commander-in-chief said. We are respected again.

In his speech Friday, Trump also targeted "critics and cynics" within America who he said have sought to downplay the U.S.

Actually, Trump didn't win Nevada in 2016, but he did pronounce the Silver State's name correctly at the Naval Academy. "And if a fight must come there is no other alternative: Victory, winning, attractive words, but that's what it's all about".

"We got you a big pay increase, first time in over 10 years. What should I do?" the president asked rhetorically, canvassing the audience.

If you want to be elected, it helps to learn to say it with a flat "a" - Neh-VAD-uh. On Friday, after the president's comment that the summit might still take place as scheduled, the White House said there are no plans right now for a US team to try again this weekend to meet with the North Korean in Singapore.

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