  • Description

    President Richard Nixon returned to the United States in a driving rain on Sunday night (3 August) from a trip around the world and he said, "America has millions of friends in this world."
    President Nixon spoke briefly to the 3,000 dignitaries and ordinary citizens that waited in the rain for his arrival. He said his visit to Bucharest was "the most moving experience that I have had in travelling to over 60 countries in the world." He said that the trip to Rumania showed that "deeply political differences cannot permanently divide peoples of the world."
    The President and Mrs. Nixon came down the steps from the Presidential jet together and in the open. Only at the foot of the steps did a military aide step up with an umbrella. They then moved down the line of Cabinet members, Ambassadors and members of Congress. Senators Edward Kennedy, looking drenched by the rain, was also on hand to greet President Nixon.
