The Washington Post reported: Ramadan, which falls on the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, started on May 27 this year and ends at sundown Saturday. Muslims around the world will mark the end of the holy month by celebrating the holiday Eid al-Fitr, the “feast of breaking of the fast.”
For the first time in nearly two decades, Ramadan has come and gone without the White House recognizing it with an iftar or Eid celebration, as had taken place each year under the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations. In recent weeks, several former White House staff members told The Post they would usually begin planning an iftar “months in advance” and didn’t anticipate the Trump White House could pull something off before the end of Ramadan.
Wouldn't call twenty years of Iftar being celebrated in the White House for twenty years a long standing tradition, it was more of past President's before Trump trying to bring Islam into America. Trump just told the world what he thinks of evil Islam by cancelling this dinner at the White House for the first time in 30 years, by doing this Trump stated that Islam is not Americas religion.
Now this move by the Trump White House to cancel this dinner will likely be considered as racist by the Left in America an against religious rights, but this needed to be done as America is a Constitutional Republic which Islam has no respect for. Chant things like Death to America over and over again...Don't expect Trump to provide support for you're evil religion. Finally the White House is becoming America again, and the Islamic holiday of Iftar or Islamic holidays in general is no longer represented by an America First President...Thank God!
