Statement by President Trump: Guatemala National Day

Dear Mr. President:

On behalf of the people of the United States, please accept my congratulations to you and all the citizens of Guatemala as your country celebrates 196 years of independence on September 15th.

I look forward to continuing our partnership on security, governance, and prosperity issues.  I also want to thank you for your participation in the June 15-16 Conference on Prosperity and Security in Central America, which underscored the value we place on our bilateral relationship and our commitment to promoting a secure and stable Central America.

I extend to you and the people of Guatemala my best wishes on the anniversary of your independence.


Donald J. Trump
