Dear Mr. President:

On behalf of the people of the United States of America, it is my pleasure to congratulate the people of Switzerland as you celebrate your national day on August 1.  The United States deeply values Switzerland’s vital partnership in promoting our shared ideals of economic freedom and democracy.

As we discussed when you visited the White House on May 16, the United States looks forward to strengthening our deep economic relationship and promoting innovation together.  While you reflect on the proud history, prosperity, and success of the Swiss Confederation, please know that the United States greatly values your friendship and steadfast commitment to our common interests.  


Donald J. Trump
