                          PRESIDENTIAL MESSAGE

                                 ______
                                 

REQUEST FOR THE WITHDRAWAL OF THE ARMS TRADE TREATY, SENATE TREATY DOC 
              114-14, TRANSMITTED DECEMBER 6, 2016--PM 11

  The PRESIDING OFFICER laid before the Senate the following message 
from the President of the United States, together with an accompanying 
report, which was referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations:

To the Senate of the United States:
  I have concluded that it is not in the interest of the United States 
to become a party to the Arms Trade Treaty (Senate Treaty Doc. 114-14, 
transmitted December 9, 2016). I have, therefore, decided to withdraw 
the aforementioned treaty from the Senate and accordingly request that 
it be returned to me.
                                                     Donald J. Trump.  
The White House, April 29, 2019.

                          ____________________
