Trump says he’ll deliver West Point commencement address – amid social distancing

President Trump said Friday he intends to deliver the commencement address this year at the U.S. Military Academy, according to reports.

The graduation ceremony is scheduled for May 23 at the academy in West Point, N.Y., though whether that date will hold was uncertain because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Nevertheless, the president said social distancing practices will be in place when the event is held.

“They’ll have some big distance, so it will be very different than it ever looked,” the president said, according to The Hill. “Do I like the look? No, I don’t. And eventually, next year, they’ll have a commencement like it’s been.”
