Trump Creates Awesome New National Holiday Sure to Make Obama Livid:

0

Since taking over the White House, Donald Trump has been very busy exerting the duties of the office of the Presidency, multi-tasking a number of items.

The President has decided to create a National Day of Patriotism and all that has to be done now is to pick the perfect date for it.

“Shortly after taking office as the 45th U.S. president, Trump signed a series of documents on the Senate floor establishing his new administration,” the Associated Press reported. “Among the president’s first acts was signing a proclamation for a national day of patriotism, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer revealed on Twitter.” Although no further specifics about this day were given, Spicer repeatedly emphasized that the reason for it was to ‘Make America Great Again.’

With the exception of one Patriot’s Day in 2014, I don’t even remember Obama TALKING about patriotism. He did do a good deal of trying to lift up our enemies and radical Islamic extremists.

White House Press Secretary Spicer did not give any details regarding the new day for the celebration of America, such as the specific significance or the date.

It is also unclear how this day will differ from existing patriotic days, like Independence Day, but there is plenty of time for details.

The president reserves the right to declare one-time holidays, but only Congress has the authority to create federal holidays. Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama used this power to declare Sept. 11 Patriot’s Day.

By way of a presidential proclamation, Bush established Patriot’s Day in 2002, and Obama did the same in 2014.

Sept. 11 was first declared a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance for the Victims of the Terrorist Attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

In the United States, a federal holiday is an authorized holiday which has been recognized by the US government. Every year on a US federal holiday, non-essential federal government offices are closed, and every federal employee is paid for the holiday. Private-sector employees required to work on a legal holiday may receive holiday pay in addition to their ordinary wages.
