“Dear President- Elect Trump,
Congratulations on your victory in the Presidential Election and your elevation to the Office of President.
As you are aware the United States has historically been a significant partner and ally of Trinidad and Tobago in several spheres of development including international security, trade, education, agriculture, social development and health care. As Leader of the Opposition, and former Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, I have had the opportunity to work with several representatives of the Government of the United States in pursuit of these initiatives and I look forward to the continued progress in the development of our common goals.
Allow me to take this opportunity as well to congratulate the American people for their expressed and demonstrated commitment to the principles of self governance and the democratic electoral process in the recently concluded elections.
I pray that God will continue to bless the United States of America and the continued friendship between our two great Nations.”
