US PRESIDENT TRUMP URGED COLLEGE STUDENTS TO STAND UP TO CRITICISM :

 Delivering his first commencement address, President Donald Trump today urged graduates of a Christian university to follow their convictions but to also be willing to stand up to criticism from others who don’t have the courage to do what is right.  Trump kept to an upbeat message in his first extended public appearance since firing James Comey as FBI director this week.  Drawing parallels to what was widely viewed as a longshot bid by Trump for the presidency, he urged the more than 18,000 graduates to fight for what they believe in and to “challenge entrenched interests and failed power structures.”   “Remember this: Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy,” Trump said. “Following your convictions means you must be willing to face criticism from those who lack the same courage to do what is right, and they know what is right but they don’t have the courage or the guts or the stamina to take it and to do it.”  Trump told graduates to “treat the word ‘impossible’ as nothing more than motivation” and to embrace being called an “outsider” because “It’s the outsiders who change the world.”  Rediff.com : 13th.
