President Trump to speak at Naval Academy commencement
Baltimore Sun ^ | 4/18/18 | Danielle Ohl

President Donald Trump will speak at the Naval Academy commissioning ceremony next month in Annapolis, city officials confirmed Wednesday.

It will be Trump’s first time speaking to the academy’s graduating class, as last year Vice President Mike Pence gave the address. Graduation will be held at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium at 10 a.m. May 25 with a Blue Angels fly-over to begin the ceremony.

The City of Annapolis will be cooperating with the secret service to provide security for Trump’s visit, said Susan O’Brien, city spokeswoman.

The city is not yet confirming which roads will be closed for the president’s visit. They will release a full schedule of traffic modifications closer to the commencement date, said Cpl. Amy Miguez, police spokeswoman.

Trump did not attend last year’s commissioning ceremony, as he was in Sicily for the Group of Seven summit. This broke with precedent both presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama set in their first years in office. Trump instead spoke to the graduating cadets at the Coast Guard Academy the week before.

I’m waiting for a few #NeverTrumps or #MeToos to create problems and seek attention. Maybe that won’t be happening here at all. He is our president now. No longer just a candidate.

Also newly commissioned Marine Corps officers! More than 200 of each year’s Naval Academy class is entering the Marine Corps. One year recently I recall the number was around 270.

Don't close any. It's an open air stadium.

Marine one just lands in the middle of that big grassy field. As soon as President Trump and Melania exit the chopper, the Blue Angels do their fly over.

Our church family is very proud to have a 1st Class Midshipman who will be amongst the graduates. He picked “Nuclear Officer - Surface Nuclear Navy” as his MOS. Smart young man.

I have a suggestion for Pres Trump:

Please bring to the podium the pilot of the Southwest airplane that had the engine failure yesterday>

SHE is a former NAVY FIGHTER PILOT & she kept her cool. First fatality for Southwest in over 51 years.

She would be a perfect addition to the podium, IMO.

I remember President Bush came to do the Class of 1991’s commencement right after the Gulf War. We had Vice President Quayle in 1992, about a week after his Murphy Brown speech.

Word is, in deep state perspective, the Coast Guard, Navy and Marines are 100% behind Trump. The Air Force and Army, not so much.
