        We all remember the hoopla not long ago when the Jews got offended as Pres. Trump refused to mention the Jews in reference to the holocaust.

        And hasn't had a traditional Jewish dinner at the WH either.

        The article in post one Trump ends Ramadan celebration at the White House

        Statement from President Donald J. Trump on Eid al-Fitr

        On behalf of the American people, Melania and I send our warm greetings to Muslims as they celebrate Eid al-Fitr.

        Muslims in the United States joined those around the world during the holy month of Ramadan to focus on acts of faith and charity. Now, as they commemorate Eid with family and friends, they carry on the tradition of helping neighbors and breaking bread with people from all walks of life.

        During this holiday, we are reminded of the importance of mercy, compassion, and goodwill. With Muslims around the world, the United States renews our commitment to honor these values.

        Eid Mubarak.

        Eid Mubarak
        Eid Mubarak or Blessed Eid
        is a traditional Muslim greeting reserved for use on the festivals of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr. Eid means celebration and refers to the occasion itself, and Mubarak means blessed; for example, performing the Eid prayer. So Eid, meaning celebration, and Mubarak, meaning Blessed literally translates to wishing your friends a blessed holiday. In the social sense, people usually celebrate Eid al-Fitr after Ramadan and Eid-al-Adha in the month of Dhul Haj (12th and Final Islamic month), greetings like Eid Mubarak. Some state this exchange of greetings is a cultural tradition and not part of any religious obligation. However, it is only used during the celebration of the two Muslim holidays.[1][2] Children get a day off school if it is before or on a school day.

        Is he getting the hang of it now...big shrug....
