Dear Madam Governor General:

I am writing to offer you the United States’ warm congratulations on this 152nd anniversary of the Constitution Act of 1867.

Since its founding, Canada has represented a powerful, positive force in the world. Our people share many strong bonds, including a common history, close cultural, economic, and familial ties, and a deep sense of duty to promote peace and prosperity in the world. The United States views its bilateral relationship with Canada as one of the most important, and places tremendous value on maintaining it.

I wish you and all Canadians a very happy Canada Day, and express my best wishes for your nation’s bright future.

Sincerely,

Donald J. Trump
