Trump Gives Commencement Speech at Liberty University [VIDEO]

For the first time as president, Trump delivered a commencement speech. It was given at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.

“Washington is run by a small group with failed values who think they know everything. We don’t need a lecture from Washington on how to lead our lives,” Trump said at one point in his speech. “We don’t worship Washington. We worship God.”

“No one has ever achieved anything significant without a chorus of critics explaining why it can’t be done,” Trump said. “Nothing is easier or more pathetic than being a critic. There are people who can’t get the job done, but the future belongs for the dreamers, not the critics, the people who follow their heart no matter what the critics say.”
