US President Donald Trump on Thursday wished Muslims across the nation and the world “Ramadan Mubarak,” or a blessed Ramadan, saying he prays for those observing the holy month.

The President said, “I wish all Muslims, both in the United States and across the world, a blessed and peaceful Ramadan.”

Trump noted that for millions around the globe, this holy month is an opportunity to renew and strengthen their faith through rigorous fasting, devout prayer, reflective meditation, reading the Quran, and charitable deeds.  These acts are closely aligned with the universal values that the Islamic faith promotes—peace, kindness, and love and respect for others.

Trump said that over the past months, we have seen how important the power of prayer can be during challenging times.  “Today, as the holy month of Ramadan commences, I pray that those who are observing this sacred time find comfort and reassurance in their faith. Ramadan Mubarak.”, Concluded the President.

Democrat Presidental 2020 candidate and former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden shared his message from his blog: “As Muslim families across America and around the world celebrate the beginning of Ramadan, Jill and I want to extend our best wishes to all who are observing this holy month,” he writes.

“Americans of all backgrounds have come to respect the discipline and values of Ramadan. We have stood in awe of athletes like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Ibtihaj Muhammad as they abstained from food and drink during the heat of competition. We have seen Muslims give generously to strengthen our communities and lift up the most marginalized among us. Above all, we have felt the sense of unity, joy, and deep reflection that this month creates for our Muslim friends and neighbors.”
