President Trump on Friday wished Muslims a ‘joyful Ramadan’ in a statement, while he was giving speech on fight against terrorism.
Targeting recent terror attacks in England and Egypt, Trump called them acts of depravity that are directly contrary to the spirit of Ramadan.
“Such acts only steel our resolve to defeat terrorists and their perverted ideology,” he said.
Trump also talked about his recent trip to Saudi Arabia, during which he discussed about terrorism but he avoided talking about controversial terms like ‘radical Islamic terror’.
“I reiterate my message delivered in Riyadh: America will always stand with our partners against terrorism and the ideology that fuels it,” Trump said.
“During this month of Ramadan, let us be resolved to spare no measure so that we may ensure that future generations will be free of this scourge and able to worship and commune in peace.”
