Nixon Addresses the U.S. Chamber

Aug 1, 2012

On April 29, 1969, U.S. President Richard Nixon gave closing remarks at the Chamber’s 57th annual meeting. Nixon said that he was the only person to address the Chamber’s annual meeting as a congressman, senator, vice president, and president other than President Lyndon Johnson.

Nixon complimented the Chamber, saying, “That is why it is a very great inspiration for me to speak to you, recognizing that your program of Forward America means that we have throughout this nation hundreds of thousands, yes, millions of Americans who in their private capacities are going to work with government for the solution to our problems.”
