Your Holiness,

On behalf of the American people, I am honored to congratulate you upon the seventh anniversary of your election to the Chair of Saint Peter.

Since 1984, the United States and the Holy See have worked together to advance peace, freedom, and human dignity around the world.  I look forward to our continued cooperation.

Please accept my prayers and best wishes as you begin the eighth year of your pontificate.


Donald J. Trump
