President Trump Issues Message on Juneteenth

A message dedicated the holiday of freedom for all.

As the protests surrounding George Floyd have continued into their third week, the recognition of Juneteenth, a holiday commemorating when the last slaves were informed of the Emancipation Proclamation, has entered strongly into the dialogue of the general populace. President Trump acknowledged the holiday with a statement from the White House:

“Juneteenth reminds us of both the unimaginable injustice of slavery and the incomparable joy that must have attended emancipation… This Juneteenth, we commit, as one Nation, to live true to our highest ideals and to build always toward a freer, stronger country that values the dignity and boundless potential of all Americans.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For President Trump as he works to represent Black Americans in his administration.
  • That the President would continue to push for freedom and justice for all.
  • For those who celebrated Juneteenth this past Friday; may they be granted joy and healing.
