                Proclamation 9954 of October 23, 2019

                
United Nations Day, 2019

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Seventy-four years ago, representatives of 50 countries 
                gathered in San Francisco to establish a global 
                organization dedicated to achieving peace and 
                prosperity. Impelled by the unprecedented carnage of 
                two world wars, these countries created the United 
                Nations as a forum for peaceful conflict resolution and 
                the promotion of shared beliefs, forever changing 
                global diplomacy. On this day, we celebrate the 
                achievements of the United Nations in promoting peace, 
                delivering aid to those in need, and confronting 
                international challenges, and we recommit to helping 
                the organization reach its full potential.

                Last month, at the 74th Session of the United Nations 
                General Assembly, I laid out my vision for a future of 
                which America can be proud. The United States has 
                embarked on a program of national renewal--fueling 
                economic growth through tax cuts and deregulation, 
                fighting unfair trade, protecting individual freedoms, 
                and standing up for sovereign borders. We call on other 
                countries to pursue their own programs of national 
                revitalization. The path to prosperity for each country 
                begins at home--and when leaders of sovereign nations 
                put the interests of their citizens first, our 
                collective future will be brighter, our people will be 
                happier, and our partnerships will be stronger. The 
                United States prizes liberty, independence, and self-
                government above all, and the United Nations 
                organization is stronger when leaders protect their own 
                people, respect their neighbors, and honor the 
                differences that make each country unique.

                Among the member states of the United Nations, the 
                United States is leading the way in addressing global 
                problems. We have held to account the Iranian regime, 
                which seeks destabilization through nuclear 
                proliferation, promotes a global campaign of terror, 
                and causes mass unrest throughout the Middle East 
                region. In response to Iran's attack in September on 
                oil facilities in Saudi Arabia, we imposed stringent 
                sanctions on the regime's Central Bank and National 
                Development Fund. We have also worked to address the 
                ongoing calamity in Venezuela wrought by the 
                illegitimate regime of Nicolas Maduro. We imposed 
                sanctions that cut off the Maduro dictatorship's 
                financial support, and we were the first country to 
                recognize Juan Guaido as the legitimate, interim 
                President of Venezuela. The United States will continue 
                to work through the United Nations and with its member 
                states to confront bad actors who seek to disrupt and 
                destroy freedom, prosperity, and progress.

                We must also recognize that, in order to reach its 
                enormous potential, the United Nations must follow 
                through on essential reforms. The financial burdens 
                must be distributed more equitably and funds should be 
                taken from failed programs and directed to those that 
                work.

                On this day, we also pause to acknowledge the 
                sacrifices of all men and women who serve in United 
                Nations missions around the world. They are far from 
                home, and devote their time and energy to protecting 
                the vulnerable and providing relief to areas ravaged by 
                war, famine, and natural disasters. And we honor the 
                memories of those who have lost their lives in the 
                pursuit of world peace.

                United States, do hereby proclaim October 24, 2019, as
