President Barack Obama delivered the commencement speech at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., on Friday, blaming the “misconduct of a few” for erosion of the public’s “trust in the government.”

“Everyday our civil servants do their jobs with professionalism, protecting our national security and delivering the services that so many Americans expect, but as we’ve seen again in recent days, it only takes the misconduct of a few to further erode to the people’s trust in their government, and that’s unacceptable to me, and I know that’s unacceptable to you,” Obama told graduates.

“It’s no secret that in recent decades, many Americans have lost confidence in many of the institutions that help shape our society and our democracy, but I suggest to you today that institutions do not fail in a vacuum. Institutions are made up of people, individuals, and we’ve seen how the actions of a few can undermine the integrity of those institutions,” he said.

He added that the “misdeeds of some – while risk-taking or putting profits before people – sparked a financial crisis and deepened the recession that cost millions of Americans their jobs.”
