THAT OFFER COMES AS PRESIDENT TRUMP TRAVELS HERE TO NEW ENGLAN>>THESE ARE LIVE PICTURES AT THE U.S. COAST GUARD ACADEMY IN NEW LONDON, CONNECTICUT.

NOT ADDRESSING THE CONTROVERSY SURROUNDING WASHINGTON, D C AIR FORCE ONE TOUCHED DOWN ABOUT 90 MINUTES AGO AT THE GROTON-NEW LONDON AIRPORT. THE PRESIDENT STEPPED OFF WITH A COUPLE WAVES AND FIST PUMPS FOR A GROUP OF WAITING SUPPORTERS. HE THEN CLIMBED INTO A LIMO FOR THE SHORT RIDE TO THE ACADEMY. HERE’S A BIT OF WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID MOMENTS AGO. PRESIDENT TRUMP: YOU ARE ABOUT TO BECOME MILITARY FAMILIES. SO, STARTING TODAY, I HOPE YOU FEEL THE FULL GRATITUDE OF OUR NATION.

    His first sentence was good. When he spoke to the cadets it was nice. Then it became a selfish Narcissistic speech about himself. He seems angry. But he's probably going to be impeached.

    It was weird seeing him here in Connecticut because he rarely comes here. It was a nice day and congratulations to the graduates. I think the speech got off track, but it was ok. It's all about these young men and women. Not about Trump. Keep the focus on the positive, even though it is not looking too good for this President.
