On the occasion of Thanksgiving, which is a national holiday in the United States and celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, the US President Trump in his message said, "We are now at the beginning of a national period of Thanksgiving. And as we pause to give thanks for all of the blessings that we've been bestowed, it really has been blessing after blessing after blessing. We're all very thankful."

He added, "We give thanks for the family, friends, neighbors and loved ones who enrich our lives, lift our spirits, and fill our days with joy.  And we give thanks to God, who continues to shed his almighty grace upon this magnificent land that we all love so very much. "

"And we also pray for those in need, especially our fellow citizens impacted by the devastating wildfires in California, where I just came back.  I've never seen anything like it.  Probably nobody has.  All American hearts are joined with theirs," he further conveyed.

At many places, charity was carried out and the poor were provided with food. Also, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in Manhattan which ends at Herald Square with the Santa Claus float as a sign of the beginning of the Christmas season.  The parades were also held in Philadelphia and Detroit.
