                Proclamation 10023 of April 30, 2020

                
Loyalty Day, 2020

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                The United States has been a strong Nation for more 
                than two centuries not only because of the ideals that 
                we share as a people, but also because of the love we 
                have for our home and the loyalty we have for each 
                other. From the beginning of our history and through 
                trials of war and peace, Americans have always been 
                filled with a devotion to freedom, a fierce spirit of 
                independence, a courageous dedication to the cause of 
                self-government, and a sacred commitment to our shared 
                and glorious destiny. Together, we honor the wisdom of 
                our Founders. We revere the words of our Constitution 
                and our Declaration of Independence. We celebrate the 
                heroes of our history and treasure the majesty of 
                America's natural beauty. We marvel at the achievements 
                of American artists, scientists, engineers, inventors, 
                business leaders, and pioneers. And we cherish the 
                nobility of the American way of life.

                For all of these reasons and more, the United States is 
                the most just and virtuous nation in the history of the 
                world--and the American people are exceptional citizens 
                of an exceptional republic. Americans rightly take 
                pride in our country--and we take pride in the unique 
                culture of freedom that has been forged over nearly 250 
                years. Our national character is defined by the values 
                of faith and family, liberty and fairness, and hard 
                work and personal responsibility. Generations of 
                Americans have poured out sweat, blood, soul, and tears 
                to defend these values--and on this day, we rededicate 
                ourselves to protecting them in our own time, and for 
                unborn generations to come.

                Americans have always been loyal to their Nation--and 
                they deserve a government that is always loyal to them 
                in return.

                As we confront the global pandemic that is now 
                afflicting our country, we draw strength from the bonds 
                of duty, love, and loyalty that have always sustained 
                our Nation through trying times. An army of doctors, 
                nurses, truckers, clerks, scientists, service workers, 
                researchers, and first responders are doing everything 
                in their power to heal the sick, find a cure, and care 
                for the needs of every American--often at grave risk to 
                themselves. All across our country, Americans are 
                courageously fighting a daily battle against an 
                invisible enemy. In light of the extraordinary heroism 
                and dedication we have witnessed, each of us will go 
                forward from this challenging time stronger and even 
                more certain that when duty calls, we will answer it. 
                On this Loyalty Day, we recognize that as long as we 
                take pride in our country, defend our great 
                inheritance, and love our Nation, America will rise to 
                every occasion and achieve a magnificent future.

                In order to reaffirm our loyalty to our country, to our 
                freedoms, and to each other, the Congress, by Public 
                Law 85-529, as amended, has designated May 1 of each 
                year as ``Loyalty Day,'' and has requested the 
                President issue a proclamation inviting the people of 
                the United States to observe that day with appropriate 
                activities. On this day, we honor the United States of 
                America and its values, as well as those who have 
                fought and continue to fight for our freedom.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the 
                United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 
                2020, as Loyalty Day. I call on all Americans to 
                observe this day by learning more about the proud 
                history of our Nation. I urge all Government officials 
                to display the flag of the United States on all 
                Government buildings and grounds on that day.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                thirtieth day of April, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand twenty, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and forty-fourth.
