Congo Town, Monrovia, Liberia ––On behalf of the Coalition for Democratic Change in Liberia, former UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassador, former Peace Ambassador of the Republic of Liberia, and Chairman of the Governing Council of the Coalition for Democratic Change, Ambassador George Manneh Weah congratulates Mr. Donald J. Trump, Sr. for his victory as the 45th president-elect of the United States of America.
Ambassador Weah, who is also a senator in the Liberian senate, praised the campaign team of President-elect Trump for conducting and leading a vigorous effort that led to the electoral win.
The Liberian lawmaker praised President-elect Trump, Sr. for defying all odds and ultimately prevailing in the November 8, 2016’s poll. Ambassador Weah also thanked the American people for electing the leader of their choice, and for exhibiting the tenets of true democracy amid a tough and challenging electoral process.
“In a time when the world was watching to see one of the champions of true democracy, the United States of America, exercised the very tenets of democracy they have introduced and continue spread to other nations around the globe. The Americans did not disappoint as they proved to the rest of the world why they are a true role model and one of the prime architects of modern democracy,” Ambassador said.
Ambassador Weah expressed his gratitude to President Barack H. Obama and his administration for fostering the longstanding partnership and ties between the great people of America and Liberia—a tradition the Liberian lawmaker said he has no doubt the incoming administration of president-elect, Donald J. Trump will continue.
Ambassador Weah who many believed had won the Liberian presidential election in 2005 against his then rival, incumbent Liberian president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, is a presidential candidate in the presidential election scheduled to be held in October 2017.
The Liberian lawmaker’s congratulatory message was contained in a press release issued on November 15, 2016 under the signature of Sam Mannah, a Public Relations Officer of the Coalition for Democracy,
Weah’s popularity will be tested in the 2017 presidential election for the third time.
