Trump: statement on the 155th anniversary of the constitutional amendment to abolish slavery

The head of state stressed the Americans’ desire to strengthen unity in society

President Trump made a statement to mark the 155th anniversary of the 13th amendment to the U.S. Constitution that ended slavery in the country. According to the President, “paying tribute to the millions of people who were oppressed by the repressive institution of slavery despite justice,” we reaffirm the enduring principle of American statehood that “all people have God-given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Recalling that on December 6, 1865, Georgia became the 27th state to ratify the 13th amendment, securing the end of slavery forever, Trump emphasized that this moment marked the beginning of a new era in U.S. history.

The President emphasized the enormous contribution that African Americans have made to the history and culture of the country.

He also emphasized that the adoption of the 13th Amendment had ended the division of the country into free states and those where slavery still existed.

Recalling the historical victories of the United States, particularly over fascism and communism, the president expressed the determination of Americans to “continue working to strengthen the bonds of unity” in society.
