                                     Washington, November 24, 2020.
Hon. Nancy Pelosi,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Madam Speaker: Section 202(d) of the National 
Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)) provides for the automatic 
termination of a national emergency unless, within 90 days 
before the anniversary date of its declaration, the President 
publishes in the Federal Register and transmits to the Congress 
a notice stating that the emergency is to continue in effect 
beyond the anniversary date. In accordance with this provision, 
I have sent to the Federal Register for publication the 
enclosed notice stating that the national emergency declared in 
Executive Order 13851 of November 27, 2018, is to continue in 
effect beyond November 27, 2020.
    The situation in Nicaragua, including the violent response 
by the Government of Nicaragua to the protests that began on 
April 18, 2018, and the Ortega regime's systematic dismantling 
and undermining of democratic institutions and the rule of law, 
its use of indiscriminate violence and repressive tactics 
against civilians, as well as its corruption leading to the 
destabilization of Nicaragua's economy, continues to pose an 
unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and 
foreign policy of the United States. For this reason, I have 
determined that it is necessary to continue the national 
emergency declared in Executive Order 13851 with respect to the 
situation in Nicaragua.
            Sincerely,
                                                   Donald J. Trump.

                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to the Situation in 
                               Nicaragua

    On November 27, 2018, by Executive Order 13851, I declared 
a national emergency pursuant to the International Emergency 
Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706) to deal with the 
unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and 
foreign policy of the United States constituted by the 
situation in Nicaragua.
    The situation in Nicaragua, including the violent response 
by the Government of Nicaragua to the protests that began on 
April 18, 2018, and the Ortega regime's systematic dismantling 
and undermining of democratic institutions and the rule of law, 
its use of indiscriminate violence and repressive tactics 
against civilians, as well as its corruption leading to the 
destabilization of Nicaragua's economy, continues to pose an 
unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and 
foreign policy of the United States. For this reason, the 
national emergency declared on November 27, 2018, must continue 
in effect beyond November 27, 2020. Therefore, in accordance 
with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 
1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency 
declared in Executive Order 13851 with respect to the situation 
in Nicaragua.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                   Donald J. Trump.
    The White House, November 24, 2020.
