New London, Connecticut [USA], May 18 (ANI): U.S. President Donald Trump claimed on Wednesday that "no politician in history" has been "treated worse" than him. During a commencement address, he told the graduates of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, "Look at the way I've been treated lately, especially by the media. No politician in history - and I say this with great surety - has been treated worse or more unfairly," reports the CNN. The comments were Trump's first since reports emerged that he asked sacked FBI Director James Comey in February to drop his probe of former national security adviser Michael Flynn over his Russia links. "You will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve and that are not always warranted. But you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. Never, ever, ever give up. Things will work out just fine," he added. Trump said that the attitude is a big reason why he won the November election. (ANI)
