Trump’s National Security Adviser to Speak at Coast Guard Commencement

National security adviser John R. Bolton will be the graduation speaker at the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut — carrying on a long history of high-profile speakers.

The commencement address has been delivered by presidents of the United States and top cabinet members for decades. President Donald Trump spoke at the academy in 2017 under a tradition in which presidents rotate their commencement speeches at the military service academies. Vice President Mike Pence delivered the address last year.

Bolton, whose official title is assistant to the President for national security affairs, will be speaking on May 22 at the 138th commencement on the academy’s football field, overlooking the Thames River.
