Donald Trump has caused another MSM uproar by not hosting an end of Ramadan celebration at the White House. The tradition began under Bill Clinton and was first instigated by Huma Abedin, it has been observed every year since.
And although the MSM is going crazy, hardly anyone else is (other than CAIR). There is no good reason why Trump should be hosting a party that is to celebrate the end of a Muslim calendar event. The US does not recognize and celebrate the the King of Holland’s birthday, the US does not recognize and celebrate Chinese Tomb Sweeping day, so why should it recognize and celebrate Ramadan?
The US is not a Muslim country. And the truth is that the vast majority of Muslims see no reason why the White House should be observing their traditions. It is only special interest groups that care about this, and of course the MSM who are desperate to smear Donald Trump in any way they can.
As reported in Young Conservatives:
President Donald Trump angered some on the left this week by failing to hold a White House dinner celebrating the Muslim holiday of Ramadan.
From Biz Pac Review:
Instead, Trump issued a warm statement wishing Muslims a happy Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan. The statement read:
On behalf of the American people, Melania and I send our warm greetings to Muslims as they celebrate Eid al-Fitr.
With Muslims around the world, the United States renews our commitment to honor these values. Eid Mubarak.
Leftists accused him of breaking a ‘tradition’ that was started by former President Bill Clinton and carried on through Barack Obama’s administration.
