"The more people tell you it's not possible, that it can't be done, the more you should be absolutely determined to prove them wrong".

"President Trump's actions in the last four months speak for themselves", Falwell said.

"In my short time in Washington, I've seen firsthand how the system is broken", Trump said, while addressing graduating seniors at Liberty University.

Several newly elected presidents, including Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter, have picked the University of Notre Dame to deliver their first in-office commencement speeches. He doesn't listen to his advisers. "The close ties he forged with the university leadership paved the way for evangelical support that was crucial to winning the GOP nomination and the White House".

Trump's remarks will mark his first extended public appearance since he fired James Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director. Trump is not capable of learning.

The Humpty Dumpty presidency of Donald J. Trump is about to fall down and never be put back together again. "I know that each of you will do what is right, not what is the easy way, and that you will be true to yourself, and your country and your beliefs". He alluded to his recent executive order billed as protecting religious freedom, though some critics said the language actually changes very little. "I said I was going to do it and Jerry, I did it", Trump said referring to Falwell and the Johnson Amendment order.

In his first commencement speech as commander-in-chief, Trump imparted a wide range of advice to the outgoing students at the evangelical Christian university in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Describing the supportive crowd as "Champions for Christ", he encouraged them to get involved in public life. "Following your convictions means that you must be willing to face criticism from those who lack courage to do what is's called the road less traveled".

Liberty University President Jerry Fallwell Jr., who endorsed Trump in the 2016 campaign, said that he was honored that the president chose the university for his first commencement speech.

Trump, who was presented with an honorary degree but didn't wear academic regalia during his address, urged the Liberty graduates to remain persistent, never give up and, if necessary, to embrace being an outsider.

"As long as I'm your president", Trump promised to loud applause, "no one is ever going to stop you from practicing your faith or preaching what's in your heart".

He says: "I'm guessing there are some people here today who thought that either one of those things - either one - would really require major help from God".

In spite of all that praise, there were protests at Liberty University, and at least one boo.

And he tells graduates that he's standing before them as the country's leader.

President Trump told a crowd of college graduates Saturday they should not be afraid to challenge the establishment or government elites who would second-guess whatever they do.
