Trump’s Sends Ridiculous Message To Muslims For Ramadan, Twitter Isn’t Having It…

President Donald Trump sent a message to Muslims celebrating Ramadan, and it did not go over well. The president has an ugly history with Muslims worldwide and in the United States. It should come as no surprise that any Ramadan well wishes from him might be met with skepticism.

The president said in a statement, “In the United States, we are all blessed to live under a Constitution that fosters religious liberty and respects religious practice. Our Constitution ensures Muslims can observe Ramadan in accordance with the dictates of conscience and unimpeded by government.”

The irony in that statement is hard to miss, particularly as it was made by the same man who called for a “Muslim ban” during his campaign.

Ramadan is a sacred holiday for Muslims worldwide. This year, the president marked the beginning of Ramadan with a statement that remained focused on the holiday itself, which said, “With the rising of tonight’s moon, I send my greetings and best wishes to all Muslims observing Ramadan in the United States and around the world.”

The statement continued: “During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims commemorate the revelation of the Quran to the prophet Muhammad through fellowship and prayer. Many observe this holy time by fasting, performing acts of charity, reciting prayers, and reading the Quran.”

This is a departure from last year’s Ramadan acknowledgment that included reference to terror attacks in Europe.

Despite the president’s improved focus from last year to this year, his statement rang entirely hollow. The internet did not take long to point out the inherent hypocrisy in the president’s statement. People took to Twitter to point out the irony by juxtaposing the president’s words with this year’s Ramadan message.
