Condolence Message, re – the late David Thompson, to Governor General of Barbados Sir Clifford Husbands from US President Barack Obama
On behalf of the American people, I want to convey to you our deepest sympathy on the passing of Prime Minister David Thompson. He was a good friend to the United States, enhancing our countries’ traditionally close ties.
Barbados’ democratic institutions have been tested and have proven their resilience under these sad circumstances. I commend the strength and fortitude of the Barbadian people. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
