MOSCOW, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- United Nations International Day of Happiness Founder and Illien Global Public Benefit Corporation CEO Jayme Illien joined heads of state and global leaders around the world to congratulate the United States of America, the international community, and US President elect Donald J Trump on the completion of a successful 45th US election.
Speaking to reporters in Moscow, Russia, the UNIDOHappiness Founder and Executive Chairman said: "We at United Nations International Day of Happiness (UNIDOHappiness) congratulate the citizens of the United States of America, all 193 UN member states and non UN territories, and President elect Donald J Trump on the completion of a successful 45th US election.
The United States of America was founded over two centuries ago when the US founding fathers, at the Second Continental Congress of 1776, unanimously adopted the US Declaration of Independence, recognizing certain unalienable and natural, legal human rights endowed by humanity's creator, including the right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
America's unique, centuries old, constitutional democracy, which prioritizes happiness as a human right, serves as a beacon of light and hope for people around the world who suffer from poverty, conflict, hunger, and discrimination, and who aspire to live happy and fulfilling lives."
In his victory speech, US President-elect Trump said: "Now it is time for America to bind the wounds of division, to get together. To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people. I want to tell the world community that while we will always put America's interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone, with everyone. All people and all other nations, we will seek common ground, not hostility; partnership, not conflict."
UNIDOHappiness Executive Chairman and Founder Jayme Illien added: "Happiness is a fundamental human right and goal. Happiness is a timeless concept that transcends geography, socioeconomic status, political views, culture, race, gender, religion, citizenship, and unites all human beings. UN resolutions 65/309 and 66/281, and the first ever High Level Meeting on Happiness and Wellbeing: Defining a New Economic Paradigm call for a world of 'Gross Global Happiness'.
At a time when global economic growth is stagnant, and America has the ability to promote a happier world for all, US President-elect Trump's pledge to double economic growth, unite the country, and seek common ground and partnership with all other nations and people is welcome news. "Let us all hope that America's new president-elect Donald J. Trump, will deliver on promises yet unfulfilled by America's potential to lead in the world."
