Documents such as Proclamations, Executive Orders, and similar documents that are published in the Federal Register and the Code of Federal Regulations, as required by law, are usually not included for the presidencies of Herbert Hoover through Gerald Ford (1929-1977), but are included beginning with the administration of Jimmy Carter (1977). The documents within the Public Papers are arranged in chronological order. The President delivered the remarks or addresses from Washington, D. C., unless otherwise indicated.

Remarks at a Luncheon Hosted by Secretary-General António Manuel de Oliveira Guterres of the United Nations in New York City
September 19th, 2017

Well, thank you very much, Mr. Secretary-General. I have to say that, as someone born in New York and raised in New York, it is a great honor to have the United Nations in New York, and always has been.

For years I've been a critic, but I've also been somebody that said that the United Nations has tremendous potential. And under your leadership—and I've seen what you've done and working with Nikki Haley and all of her friends. She's made so many friends here, and Rex Tillerson, likewise, has become, really a fixture here. We're working very hard to solve world problems.

But there is no better forum; there can be no better forum. And certainly, there can be no better location where everybody comes together. So, I want to congratulate you. The word is "potential." The potential of the United States, in terms of what it's done has been wonderful. But we can do better, and we're going to.

The potential of the United Nations is unlimited, and I really believe—I've met your representatives, and I know you well. You are going to do things that will be epic, and I certainly hope you will. But I feel very, very confident.

So I just want to toast everybody in the room. And let's give this, as a toast, to the potential—the great, great potential of the United Nations. Thank you all for being here. Thank you very much.

[At this point, the President offered a toast.]
