For eight long years under Barack Obama, the White House pandered to the Islamic world.
Even presidents before Obama were careful to tiptoe around Muslim sensitivities.
Not President Trump.
President Trump stands for what HE believe in, and doesn’t really care if others don’t like it.
Especially a Muslim world that demands so much of America, while giving so very, very little.
So, I doubt very much that Trump lost any sleep over his decision to abandon the White House tradition of hosting a feast marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
The Washington Post reports:
…it appears the modern-day White House tradition of marking Ramadan with an iftar dinner or Eid celebration has come to an end.
Ramadan, which falls on the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, started on May 27 this year and ends at sundown Saturday. Muslims around the world will mark the end of the holy month by celebrating the holiday Eid al-Fitr, the “feast of breaking of the fast.”
For the first time in nearly two decades, Ramadan has come and gone without the White House recognizing it with an iftar or Eid celebration, as had taken place each year under the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations.
What do you think about this decision?
Do you support President Trump in refusing to take part in a religious celebration in which he doesn’t believe?
Or has he unnecessarily damaged America’s relations with the Muslim world, as liberals will claim?
