Presidential Proclamation on Leif Erikson Day, 2018

Washington, DC...More than a millennium ago, Leif Erikson sailed across the frigid Atlantic and set foot on North America, likely becoming the first European to reach our continent. On Leif Erikson Day, we celebrate the extraordinary journey made by this son of Iceland and grandson of Norway with his crew and recognize the immeasurable contributions that generations of Nordic Americans have made to our Nation.





After converting to Christianity in Norway, “Leif the Lucky” set out to bring the Gospel to settlers in his native Greenland. During his extensive travels, he landed on the northern Atlantic coast, expanding mankind’s knowledge of then uncharted territory. Centuries later, many Nordic families followed his example and set sail for America with the same determination and grit. After much struggle and sacrifice, these intrepid men and women arrived on our shores with hope for a better life.

Today, we recognize the descendants of immigrants from Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland for the tremendous role they have played in developing the indomitable spirit that defines the American people. Nordic Americans have traveled in space, crisscrossed the globe by single-engine monoplane, and advanced knowledge in science and engineering. Nordic Americans have won Oscars, Grammy Awards, Pulitzer Prizes, and Nobel Prizes. They have fought — and died — in each of our Nation’s wars.

We also reflect on the deep and enduring ties we have with the Nordic countries. They are among our greatest allies in the fight against terrorism, and they are important trading partners. We renew our commitment to continue strengthening these transatlantic relationships.

To honor Leif Erikson and celebrate our Nordic-American heritage, the Congress, by joint resolution (Public Law 88-566) approved on September 2, 1964, has authorized the President of the United States to proclaim October 9 of each year as “Leif Erikson Day.”

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim October 9, 2018, as Leif Erikson Day. I call upon all Americans to celebrate the contributions of Nordic Americans to our Nation with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this eighth day of October, in the year of our Lord two thousand eighteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-third.

DONALD J. TRUMP

How about a happy “Indigenous People Day!?” Seriously? And also throw in a “Impeach the Orange!” day as well.

      Gun, spoon, fork.
      That fork was a great invention, but so were chop sticks.
      Both were better then sticking a stick in a termite mound to pull out dinner.
      We sure have grown in a few centuries.
      Thanks Whitey

    I don't see any similarity to Trump and both the color and the fruit.
    If you had at least a high school education, you'd scrap that plan of attack and come up with something a little more accurate.
    Oh yeah, Obama was half black, but out of common decency hardly anyone used that as a tool against him, besides being racist, but you guys are immune to common courtesy?
    Talk about being a sore LOSER.

    How about Hillary Clinton Day?
    Who else could run for the Presidency on Women's Rights
    while threatening them at the same time?
    From one of Bill Clintons RAPE victims.
    ''"Mr. Trump may have said some bad words, but Bill Clinton raped me, and Hillary Clinton threatened me," Broaddrick added. "I don't think there's any comparison."''
    So what's worse, grab'em by the Pussy, or raping them then
    having your wife and the Clinton goons dig up any and all dirt
    on them and threaten them?

    You Democrats sure like having it BOTH WAYS.

    So how about we all have respect and recognize ALL holidays and celebrations for ALL ethnic groups-doesn't mean we have to like everyone-just respect their cultures and histories besides appreciate our own culture and teach our kids the same.

    Ken and Lynn Sanders huh? So these are probably the same people who are putting down steven r smith and Alice. There may be a libel suit happening there. Very interesting. They are obvious Dems and like to smoke pot. So be it-what ever.

          Watch it out there, trolls.....

          Ken and Lynn are two of the kindest, most honest, and most community oriented folks in Arnold. Ken, a talented ham radio operator, is instrumental in the ongoing success of Calaveras County Search & Rescue. Lynn has helped countless women find hope when they thought their lives and marriages were worthless. They are both seriously dedicated Christians, and while that’s not my personal bag, they are both good and solid representatives of their brand of religion.

          Yup, they’re conservatives. And I’m not. And they’re STILL fine people.

Trump used the racist card when he wanted to see the birth certificate. Did you guys forget about Trumps racist remarks.
Mocking Trumps be best.
No on-line bullying, mocking,
Only Trump can dump on people and say it’s there at fault. Women don’t count just to be USED
People of color don’t count.

    In the picture, snapped in the darkness of a Wilton vineyard, Jack Kautz crouches behind a dead buck, smiling as he holds up the animal's head by its freakishly large set of antlers.

    It was a buck for the record books with sprawling antlers about an arm's width apart. If Katuz 52, had been had been able to claim it is a official trophy, he could have added it to his long list of accomplishments detailed on the website of his family's Lodi grape growing business, Ironstone Vineyards.

    President Trump needs to proclaim White Lives Matter Day for all of the contributions that white people have made.
