Trump says "no politician in history... has been treated worse" than him

Speaking to U.S. Coast Guard graduates today, president Donald Trump said that no politician in history had been treated worse than him.

"Look at the way I have been treated lately, especially by the media," he said. "No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can't let them get you down, you can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams."

Trump's White House is besieged by bipartisan questions about his alleged request to former FBI Director James Comey to halt an investigation into his former top national security aide.

He's really asking for it, isn't he?
