During his commencement speech at the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut Wednesday, President Donald Trump made the assertion that no other politician in history had been treated as “unfairly” as him.

“No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly,” Trump said to the graduating class.

The president tried to use his complaint as a way to inspire the graduates, also telling them that “you can’t let them get you down. You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams. […] I guess that’s why we won.”
