US President Donald Trump wishes Muslims a "Joyful Ramadan!" and advises them to reject violence
President of United States Donald Trump, while wishing Muslims a "Joyful Ramadan!" urged them to shun violence and support the fight against terrorism across the world.

In a release by the Office of the Press Secretary of the White House, the Statement from President Donald J Trump on Ramadan said, "On behalf of the American people, I would like to wish all Muslims a joyful Ramadan."       

"During this month of fasting from dawn to dusk, many Muslims in America and around the world will find meaning and inspiration in acts of charity and meditation that strengthen our communities," he stated. 

Reminding Muslims the core message of Ramadan, he said the observance was meant to 'strengthen awareness of shared obligation to reject violence, to pursue peace, and to give to those in need who are suffering from poverty or conflict'.

He brought forth in his message that this year the holiday began with the world mourning 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'.

He added in his message, "Such acts only steel our resolve to defeat the terrorists and their perverted ideology."

"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 said.
