Trump to host Ramadan dinner

Joined STATES: U.S. President Donald Trump will have a supper in the coming week to pay tribute to the Muslim sacred month of Ramadan, reestablishing a White House custom that he had deserted amid his first year in office, a West Wing official said on Saturday.

The supper is relied upon to be hung on Wednesday. The list of attendees was not made accessible. Mr. Trump has a long history of putting inflammatory statements about Muslims. Amid his campaign, he told a media, “I think Islam hates us.”

He more than once intimated throughout the years that previous President Barack Obama may be a Muslim, and in 2015 he said he would truly think about shutting mosques. Late that year, he issued his call for

“a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,”

what’s more, as president, he issued a progression of movement bans that for the most part focused on Muslim countries.

The dinner, which was reported earlier by Politico, will revive a tradition that Republican and Democratic presidents have carried out for years during Ramazan when Muslims fast during the daylight hours.
