President Donald Trump today (May 26, 2017) released a statement in honor of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting, with a message that focused on terrorism, according to the Huffington Post website.
"On behalf of the American people, I would like to wish all Muslims a joyful Ramadan," the president wrote.
He continued: "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."
Trump's statement diverged from Ramadan greetings released in previous years by President Barack Obama, who spoke about celebrating and honoring the contributions of Muslims to American society.
