President Donald Trump told graduates of the US Coast Guard Academy, on Wednesday, that no other politician has been treated more unfairly by the media.

“You cannot let them get you down,” he said.

Trump is offering his advice at the academy’s commencement in Connecticut, telling the graduates that they will find that “things are not always fair.”

“You have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight,” Trump added.

The US president said they can’t let the critics get in the way of their dreams.

Trump was speaking amid reports that he appealed to then FBI Director James Comey to shut down the bureau’s investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn earlier this year.

He made no mention of Comey in his speech.
