President Trump on Tuesday shared a message in advance of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. "With the rising of tonight's moon, I send my greetings and best wishes to all Muslims observing Ramadan in the United States and around the world," he said in a statement. "Ramadan reminds us of the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life," Trump also noted.
"In the United States, we are all blessed to live under a Constitution that fosters religious liberty and respects religious practice." He continued, "Our Constitution ensures Muslims can observe Ramadan in accordance with the dictates of conscience and unimpeded by government.
By doing so, the Constitution also furnishes varied opportunities for all Americans to deepen their understanding of the human soul." The Huffington Post notes that Ramadan marks the month the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad and observed by fasting during daylight hours, prayer, and helping those who are less fortunate.
