Trump Declares His Inauguration Day a ‘National Day of Patriotic Devotion’
President Trump said on Tuesday that his inauguration day is to be declared a “National Day of Patriotic Devotion.”
The Hill reports:
The text says the day, Jan. 20, 2017, is designated “in order to strengthen our bonds to each other and to our country — and to renew the duties of Government to the people.”
“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,” the proclamation reads.
Then-President Barack Obama made his own declaration in 2009, calling the day of his first inauguration a “National Day of Renewal and Reconciliation.”
