BREAKING: Trump Horrifies Muslims With Ramadan Statement We’ve Been Waiting For

President Trump issued a statement Saturday greeting Muslims as they celebrate the holiday of Eid al-Fitr, breaking with nearly two decades of tradition of holding an iftar dinner to commemorate Ramadan.

“On behalf of the American people,” President Trump said in the statement, “Melania and I send our warm greetings to Muslims as they celebrate Eid al-Fitr.”

The holiday marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.

The dinners began under President Clinton and were continued by President George W. Bush and Barack Obama. The iftar dinner at the White House is usually attended by prominent members of the Muslim community, diplomats and Congress members.

“Muslims in the United States joined those around the world during the holy month of Ramadan to focus on acts of faith and charity,” Trump said. “During this holiday, we are reminded of the importance of mercy, compassion, and goodwill. With Muslims around the world, the United States renews our commitment to honor these values.”

Trump concluded the statement with the traditional Muslim greeting “Eid Mubarak” which means “blessed celebration” and is used only during the celebration of the important holiday.

      It show that the USA is not the enemy of the Muslim Religion, but enemy only with the Radical Muslim extremists. That is a major point, and disarms the liberal Trump Haters who would like to make the world think that his administration is against the Islamic Religion.

      I wish the President had said nothing. This religion is not to be celebrated. This is America and not the middle east.

        You do realize that in this country, we welcome our citizens to practice their religions freely? Why should we recognize holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah, and more, while not recognizing Eid al-fitr?
