United States President Donald Trump on Friday wished Muslims a “joyful Ramadan” and has urged the Muslims to reject violence and help fight terrorism around the world. This may not go down well with the Muslims as they are branded as terrorists by the President of USA.
“At its core, the spirit of Ramadan strengthens awareness of our shared obligation to reject violence, to pursue peace, and to give to those in need who are suffering from poverty or conflict,” Trump said who continued “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,”“Such acts only steel our resolve to defeat the terrorists and their perverted ideology.”
Referring to his Saudi Arabia visit, Trup said he was honoured to have met some 50 leaders from the Muslim countries.
“There, in the land of the two holiest sites in the Muslim world, we gathered to deliver together an emphatic message of partnership for the sake of peace, security, and prosperity for our countries and for the world,”he said adding “I reiterate my message delivered in Riyadh: America will always stand with our partners against terrorism and the ideology that fuels it,” “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.”
It is to be remembered at this juncture that Trump has banned laptops in the planes flying from some 7 Muslim nation into the USA. He also was very critical about allowing Muslims to enter the USA during the elections.
However when Trump visited USA, he was given a red carpet welcome by none other than King Salman himself who personally received him at the airport which was not the case when President Barack Obama visited the Arab nation.
