In a speech in Jacksonville, Florida, on Thursday, he addressed those. One was the “great honor” of earning the support of admirals and top generals. The other was a distinction of similar magnitude.
“I’m also honored to have the greatest temperament that anybody has,” Trump said.
He did not thank the academy.
