President Trump declares his inauguration a National Day of Patriotic Devotion
Federal Register/Vol. 82, No. 14/Tuesday, January 24, 2017/Presidential Documents
National Day of Patriotic Devotion
By the President of the United States of America
A new national pride stirs the American soul and
inspires the American heart. We are one people, united
by a common destiny and a shared purpose.
Freedom is the birthright of all Americans, and to
preserve that freedom we must maintain faith in our
sacred values and heritage.
Our Constitution is written on parchment, but it lives
in the hearts of the American people. There is no
freedom where the people do not believe in it; no law
where the people do not follow it; and no peace where
the people do not pray for it.
There are no greater people than the American
citizenry, and as long as we believe in ourselves, and
our country, there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the
United States of America, by virtue of the authority
vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the
United States, do hereby proclaim January 20, 2017, as
National Day of Patriotic Devotion, in order to
strengthen our bonds to each other and to our country–
and to renew the duties of Government to the people.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this
twentieth day of January, in the year of our Lord two
thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the
United States of America the two hundred and forty-
