President Obama Stands with American Muslims Against Divisions As Ramadan Starts


Time: 4:44 p.m. CEST

President Barack Obama addressed the Muslims living in the United States for the beginning of the Muslim holly month of Ramadan with the message of tolerance and assurance that their community makes the American diversity greater.

Obama said, “As Muslim Americans celebrate the holy month, I am reminded that we are one American family. Even though, Obama did not mention anyone by the name, the President pointed his words toward those, which actions imply to less tolerance for others. In recent weeks, Obama targets some of the statements and explained policies of Donald Trump, probably the Republican candidate for the presidential nomination for elections in November.

“I stand firmly with Muslim American communities in rejection of the voices that seek to divide us or limit our religious freedoms or civil rights,” Obama said.

But, not only the President fears and reacts to the Trump’s comments. Some Republican strategists, as the Washington Post publishes have concerns on the hostile comments by Trump for Latinos and Muslims. On Sunday, Trump said, “he thought a Muslim judge might treat him unfairly because he wants to temporarily ban most foreign Muslims from entering the country.”

Obama reacted on Sunday with the message that he looks forward “to opening the doors of the White House to Muslim Americans during this special occasion-this year for an Eid celebration marking the end of Ramadan.” Obama praised the importance of the Muslim population in the U.S. “We are blessed with Muslim communities as diverse as our nation itself. There are those whose heritage can be traced back to the very beginning of our nation, as well as those who have only just arrived,” Obama said.
