WASHINGTON, D.C. — As Finland celebrated its 100th year of Independence as a state, United States President made a donation on behalf of the American people to its Finnish ally and the Fulbright Finland Foundation. President Trump welcomed Finnish President Niinistö to the White House where they conducted several meetings.
“The foundation of our friendship is our shared love of freedom. On behalf of all Americans, I congratulate you and the Finnish people on the 100th anniversary of Finland’s independence — 100 years. Fantastic.
In honor of Finland’s centennial, the United States is contributing an additional half-million dollars to the Fulbright Finland Foundation. Through the Fulbright program, we are sending more of our best and brightest to Finland, forging lasting connections between Americans and Finns. ”
