Statement from the Press Secretary 


President Donald J. Trump spoke with Prime Minister Boris Johnson last Friday in their first official communication since the Prime Minister took office. They discussed the importance of continuing to strengthen the special relationship between the United States and United Kingdom. Specifically, they agreed to immediately deepen and expand the bilateral economic relationship upon the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union.

President Trump Commutes Sentence of Ronen Nahmani

Today, President Donald J. Trump commuted the prison sentence of Ronen Nahmani, an action strongly supported by many notable leaders from across the political spectrum, like Representatives Hakeem Jeffries and Mark Meadows.

Mr. Nahmani is a non-violent, first-time offender with no criminal history.  He has five young children at home and his wife is suffering from terminal cancer.  These extenuating circumstances underscore the urgency of his request for clemency.

Members of Congress and a broad cross-section of the legal community have expressed support for clemency for Mr. Nahmani.  These include several distinguished senior Department of Justice officials, numerous prosecutors and judges, and many reputable legal scholars.  Among his supporters are former United States Attorneys General Edwin Meese and Michael Mukasey, former Solicitor General Seth Waxman, former Senator Orrin Hatch, Senators Marco Rubio and Rand Paul, Representatives Mark Meadows, Matt Gaetz, Anthony Brown, Bradley Schneider, Darren Soto, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Eliot Engel, Frederica Wilson, Hakeem Jeffries, Lois Frankel, Ted Lieu, Tom McClintock, and many others.  

President Trump Commutes Sentence of Ted Suhl

Office of the Press Secretary

President Trump Commutes Sentence of Ted Suhl

Today, President Donald J. Trump commuted the prison sentence of Ted Suhl, an action strongly encouraged by leaders in Mr. Suhl’s home State of Arkansas.

Mr. Suhl ran faith-based behavioral healthcare treatment centers for juveniles in Arkansas.  Investigators alleged that Mr. Suhl participated in a bribery scheme to increase Medicaid payments to his company.  Federal prosecutors in Arkansas declined to pursue the case, but prosecutors in Washington decided to move forward with the prosecution.  Although acquitted on half of the charges filed against him, he was sentenced to seven years in prison.

Mr. Suhl was a pillar of his community before his prosecution and a generous contributor to several charities.  He has been a model prisoner while serving his sentence, maintaining a spotless disciplinary record.  Mr. Suhl’s request for clemency is strongly supported by former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and former United States Attorney Bud Cummins of the Eastern District of Arkansas, each of whom have devoted considerable time and effort to securing his release.

Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Executive Grants of Clemency

Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Executive Grants of Clemency 


Today, President Donald J. Trump signed Executive Grants of Clemency (Full Pardons) for the following individuals: John Richard Bubala, Roy Wayne McKeever, Rodney Takumi, Michael Tedesco, and Chalmer Lee Williams.

In 1990, Mr. Bubala pled guilty to improper use of Federal Government property by transferring automotive equipment to the town of Milltown, Indiana, for its maintenance use.  His primary aim was to help the town, and he sought neither compensation nor recognition for his actions.  Today, Mr. Bubala is actively engaged in charity work, volunteering at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, leading education classes on the American Flag, and serving on an honor detail for veteran funerals.

In 1989, when he was 19 years old, Mr. McKeever was arrested for transporting marijuana from Mexico to Oklahoma.  Upon arrest, he immediately accepted responsibility and pled guilty to one count of using a telephone to facilitate the distribution of a controlled substance.  Mr. McKeever was sentenced to one year in prison and one year of supervised release.  He has spent the past 29 years of his life atoning for his offense through charitable works in his community.  Today, he is an active member of the Sheriffs’ Association of Texas, which supports local law enforcement and provides critical resources to officers across Texas.

In 1987, Mr. Takumi was working at an illegal gambling parlor when he was arrested during a law enforcement raid.  Mr. Takumi pled no contest and was sentenced to two years of probation and fined $250.  After his release, Mr. Takumi worked for several years as a tax preparer, and he now owns a tax preparation franchise within the Navajo Nation.  He is known in his community as an honest, fair, and generous family man.

In 1990, Mr. Tedesco was convicted of drug trafficking and fraud stemming from his minor involvement in a drug crime.  Upon his arrest, Mr. Tedesco accepted responsibility and entered a guilty plea. President Obama pardoned him in 2017, but due to a clerical error, his fraud conviction was not encompassed within that grant of Executive Clemency.  By granting a full and unconditional pardon, President Trump has corrected this error, and Mr. Tedesco will now be eligible for the State licenses he needs to expand his car warranty business.

In 1995, a friend of Mr. Williams, who worked as a baggage handler at an airport, stole firearms from some checked luggage.  Mr. Williams participated in and was convicted of several crimes related to the theft and sale of those weapons.  Upon arrest, Mr. Williams immediately accepted responsibility for his actions.  He was sentenced to four months in prison and three years of supervised release.  In light of his impeccable behavior while serving his sentence, his supervised release terminated one year early, and in 1998, the Governor of Kentucky restored his voting rights.  Today, Mr. Williams is active in his community and is uniformly described as a trustworthy man of exceptional character.

After a careful review of the files of each of these individuals, President Trump has concluded that each are entirely deserving of Executive Clemency.  Through these full and unconditional pardons, the Federal rights of these men, including the right to vote and the right to bear arms, have been fully restored.  Today, they are once again full and equal citizens under the law.

West Wing Reads President Trump’s Ability to Protect America Strengthened by Supreme Court Ruling on Border Wall

President Trump’s Ability to Protect America Strengthened by Supreme Court Ruling on Border Wall

“Friday’s Supreme Court decision allowing President Trump to transfer $2.5 billion of Defense Department funds to defend our southern border by building hundreds of miles of wall to replace existing fencing will protect the American people and our national sovereignty,” writes Tom Homan, a top immigration official under both Presidents Trump and Obama.

“News stories are calling this a victory for the president, which it is. But far more importantly, the ruling that will allow Pentagon funding for border wall construction in Arizona, California and New Mexico is a victory for our country.”

“The fallout from Wednesday’s disastrous performance by Robert Mueller in the Capitol includes a nearly 450-page report now in question. We don’t know who wrote it. We don’t know who really ran the investigation. We do know that several investigators on Mueller’s team were rabidly anti-Trump and pro-Hillary Clinton,” the Boston Heraldeditorial board writes. “Members of the team attended Clinton events, donated to her campaign and even legally represented some of her associates.”
“I feel great sympathy for the plight of the impoverished citizens of Maryland’s 7th Congressional District. For decades the Democrats have promised them jobs, good schools and safe communities. Residents waited patiently for the Promised Land, only to discover the Democrats’ policies had turned their congressional district into a dystopian wasteland,” Todd Starnes writes in Fox News.
“Vice President Mike Pence talked Friday with former prisoners about reentering the workforce as he and Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter, visited Jacksonville sites that highlighted the area’s economic boom,” Steve Patterson reports for The Florida Times-Union. “The midday visit continued a chain of appearances the two have made nationally to celebrate President Donald Trump’s Pledge to the American Worker initiative.”
Last week, White House Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt “addressed the United Nations Security Council on reaching a comprehensive peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, and he had some blunt words for an institution that for decades has failed to resolve the conflict,” Eric Shawn reports for Fox News. “We want tremendous lives for the Palestinians. We want lives that mirror the lives of Israelis as long as we can keep everybody secure,” Greenblatt said.  


Office of the Press Secretary

Rose Garden

10:09 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you very much.  Well, thank you very much, everybody.  Please, sit down.  Very important day.  And we're gathered this morning at the White House to honor our solemn duty to America’s best, bravest, and finest, who I know so well.  In a few moments, I will sign a bipartisan bill to fully reauthorize the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund.  So, the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund is something you've all worked on very hard, and the day has come.

Today, we come together as one nation to support our September 11th heroes, to care for their families, and to renew our eternal vow: Never, Ever Forget.

Before I go further, this morning we express our deepest sadness and sorrow for the families who lost a precious loved one in the horrific shooting last night in Gilroy, California.  While families were spending time together at a local festival, a wicked murderer opened fire and killed three innocent citizens, including a young child.  We grieve for their families and we ask that God will comfort them with his overflowing mercy and grace.  We're praying for those who are recovering right now in the hospital.  Some very, very serious injuries.

We thank the brave members of law enforcement -- they never let us down -- who swiftly killed the shooter.  We reaffirm our national will to answer violence with the courage, determination, and resolve of one American family.  We will continue to work together as communities and as citizens to stop evil, prevent violence, and protect the safety of all Americans.

We're joined for today's ceremony by our wonderful Vice President, Mike Pence.  Thank you, Mike, very much.  Thank you.  (Applause.)  Along with many distinguished guests.

I want to begin by recognizing a leader many of you know very well.  On September 11th, he declared, “The city of New York and the United States of America is much stronger than any group of barbaric terrorists…our strength and our willingness to defend ourselves will ultimately prevail.”  And he was right.  A great mayor of the city of New York -- our greatest mayor, in my opinion.  Now, what do I know?  (Laughter.)  Rudy Giuliani.  Stand up, Rudy.  (Applause.)  Great job, Rudy.  Great job.  Rudy has got a lot of guts.

Thanks also to Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen for being here.  Thank you, Jeff.  Thank you very much.  Along with Senator Deb Fischer and Representatives Michael Burgess, Chris Collins, Brian Fitzpatrick, Peter King, John Joyce, Mark Meadows, and Dan Meuser.  Please stand up, fellas.  Please.  (Applause.)  Thank you very much.  Thank you.  Thank you, Peter.

In the wake of the September 11th attacks, courageous Americans raced into smoke, fire, and debris in lower Manhattan, the Pentagon, and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  The whole world witnessed the might and resilience of our nation in the extraordinary men and women of the New York Fire Department and the New York Police Department, selfless patriots of unmatched character and devotion.  I grew up with them so I can tell you that’s absolutely true.  It’s always nice to really know your subject.  I know that subject.  These are great people.

We also commemorate the heroes of the Port Authority Police.  And I want to thank you all for being here.  Tremendous people.  The first responders from across the country rushed to New York and worked endless days and sleepless nights.  They fought to rescue every person trapped in the rubble, and then searched for months to find the remains of the fallen.

The love and loyalty of our 9/11 responders knew no bounds.  Today, we are deeply honored to be in the presence of more than 60 of these exceptional heroes.  They answered terror with the emotional strength of true American warriors.  Would every 9/11 responder please stand up?  Please, all you first responders.  (Applause.)  Wow.  Great.  Thank you.  Thank you, fellas.  Great-looking group of people you are.  Great-looking group of people.  Thank you very much.  You inspire all of humanity, and you know that.

We’re also greatly moved to have with us families of our fallen heroes.  Our nation owes each of you a profound debt that no words or deeds will ever repay.  But we can and we will keep our nation’s promise to you.

In a few moments, I will sign the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund.  This law makes permanent the financial support for families who lost precious loved ones as a result of September 11th attacks.  It also provides pensions for those who are suffering from cancer and other illnesses stemming from the toxic debris they were exposed to in the aftermath of the attacks.  Many of those affected were firefighters, police officers, and other first responders.  And I was down there also, but I’m not considering myself a first responder.  But I was down there.  I spent a lot of time down there with you. 

Since September 11th, we have lost more than 2,000 first responders and survivors to 9/11-related cancers and illnesses.  Currently, thousands of men and women are battling cancer and other illnesses due to 9/11.  We pledge to stand by the families of those affected, today and every day.  We will stand with you.

I want to thank lawmakers in both parties for working with common purpose to pass this vital and critical legislation.

Here with us for this signing ceremony are the three families whose loved ones are memorialized in the title of this bill.

New York Police Department Detective James Zadroga spent more than 450 hours serving at Ground Zero.  In 2006, James died from a lung disease.  To his father Joseph, and his daughter Tyler Ann, who join us: Detective Zadroga’s heroism will uplift our nation forever.  He won’t be forgotten.  We will always remember what he did for us.  Please stand up.  Please.  Please.  (Applause.)  Thank you.  Thank you very much.

Also present today is the family of East Meadow Volunteer Firefighter Ray Pfeifer.  I know East Meadow very well.  Great place.  Great people.  For eight months, Ray worked constantly at Ground Zero.  In 2017, at the age of 59, he died from cancer.

Here with us today is Ray’s wife Caryn, his daughter Taylor, and his son Terence, now a New York City firefighter.  Please, stand up.  (Applause.)  Good.  Very good.  Thank you.  And I know Ray must be watching over you, looking down right now from heaven, on this beautiful Rose Garden.  Very, very proud of you.  Thank you.  Thank you very much. 

The third namesake of the bill is New York City Detective Luis Alvarez.  Last month, his powerful testimony in Congress touched the heart of our nation.  A few days later, he passed from this life into eternity.  We are privileged to have with us Detective Alvarez’s brother Philip and his wife Alaine, and his sons Tyler and Ben.  Please, stand.  Please.  Please.  Thank you.  (Applause.)  Thank you.  Thank you very much.  Thank you very much.

I want each of you to know that America is holding you in the arms of its wonderful, wonderful heart.  And we're all grieving by your side.  Our whole nation prays and pays tribute to the incredible life and legacy of Detective Alvarez -- how hard he worked and how much he suffered.  And we really want to thank him.  He was really something.  People understood it very well.  It's really great.  Thank you.

We have an obligation, and it's a sacred obligation, to the families and first responders of 9/11. 

Here with us today is Chief John Joyce, former fire chief of the Midtown Manhattan firehouse.  On September 11th, 15 of his men raced into the ashes of hell and gave their lives.  To this day, Chief Joyce still mentors many of their 28 children.

Chief Joyce spent seven months working at Ground Zero.  In 2011, he was diagnosed with cancer.  He has also endured other severe 9/11-related illnesses.  But the Chief is a fighter.  He is definitely a fighter.  As he says, because of this bill, he does not have to fear for the families of his firehouse whose loved ones made the ultimate sacrifice.  Chief Joyce, you have our everlasting gratitude.  Please, Chief.  Thank you.  Good.  (Applause.)  Thank you, Chief.  Thank you for being here.  And say hello to everybody.

To every 9/11 hero, you poured out your heart, your sweat, your soul, and everything you had for your country.  You ran toward the wreckage, into a ball of flames, like, frankly, nobody in this country had ever seen.  You searched for survivors.  You went back day after day and night after night to save lives and return the fallen to their families, to rebuild and recover, and to show the entire world that nothing will ever break America's spirit.

Over the last two decades, you have endured hardship with amazing grace and incredible grit.  Through it all, you care and you work, and you love, and you will always remember all of those great families.  You lift up our communities and you remind us all what it means to stand united as "one nation under God."

For your entire lives, you have gone far beyond your duty to us, and today we strive to fulfill our sacred duty to you.

We love you.  We honor you.  And we thank you.  God bless you all.  Thank you.  (Applause.)  Thank you.

Now I'm going to sign this bill into law.  And I don’t know if the stage will hold it, but if it doesn’t, we're not falling very far.  But I'd like to ask the families and I'd also like to ask the first responders to come up, and we'll give -- we'll give this stage a shot.  Let's see how well built.  Made in America.  Let's see how well built it is.  Okay?  Come on up.

(The bill is signed.)

(Applause.)  Thank you, everybody.  Thank you very much.
