Trump Breaks Tradition, Forgoes Ramadan Dinner

The contrast between the Trump and Obama administrations could not be more apparent.

The contrast between the previous and current administrations could not be more stark. Following eight years of pandering by his predecessor, President Trump broke with a nearly two decades-long tradition Saturday, stating the White House will not hold an iftar dinner in honor of Ramadan. 

“On behalf of the American people Melania and I send our warm greetings to Muslims as they celebrate Eid al-Fitr.” Trump said in a statement.  ​The Hill adds:

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.

Just as Obama before him, Trump has been deliberate in the messages he sends, not just to the American people, but to our friends and foes worldwide.

  2. Finally, something to praise Trump about. Trump should not let a Muslim come anywhere near to him. A Muslim is possessed like the serpent that made Eve to fall and then Adam to fall through Eve.
