Donald Trump sent warm greetings to Muslims for Eid

Vastavam web: US President Donald Trump sent “warm greetings” to Muslims celebrating the end of Ramadan, after his administration broke with the tradition of hosting a White House event to recognize the holy month.”On behalf of the American people, Melania and I send our warm greetings to Muslims as they celebrate Eid al-Fitr,” Trump yesterday said in a statement. “During this holiday, we are reminded of the importance of mercy, compassion, and goodwill.” Since the Bill Clinton administration, the White House has each year hosted either an event to mark the Eid al-Fitr feast — which ends the fasting month of Ramadan or a meal breaking the dawn-til-dusk fast, known as an iftar.
Trump has come under fire for his history of anti-Muslim rhetoric on the campaign trail, that included calls for surveillance of US mosques and an outright ban on Muslims entering the country in the name of national security.A week after becoming president he issued a ban on travelers from several predominantly Muslim countries, which has been frozen by the US courts after sparking global chaos and outrage.
