The Muslim Ramadan began Friday for millions of followers of the Islamic faith around the globe.
President Donald Trump released a statement wishing a happy Ramadan to all who celebrate but not like Obama, Trump called out those within the Islamic faith — both moderate and radical alike — whose ideology permits and encourages acts of terrorism in the name of their faith.
“This year, the holiday begins as the world mourns the innocent victims of barbaric terrorist attacks in the United Kingdom and Egypt, acts of depravity that are directly contrary to the spirit of Ramadan,” Trump stated. “Such acts only steel our resolve to defeat the terrorists and their perverted ideology.”
“I reiterate my message delivered in Riyadh: America will always stand with our partners against terrorism and the ideology that fuels it,” Trump stated.
“During this month of Ramadan, let us be resolved to spare no measure so that we may ensure that future generations will be free of this scourge and able to worship and commune in peace.”
He concluded his message by extending his best wishes for a peaceful and blessed month for Muslims across the world as they observe their traditions, ending with, “May God bless you and your families.”
This is a powerful statement regarding the Muslim holy month of Ramadan! So different from what we heard for 8 years from Obama!
