Washington: President Joe Biden Donald is facing criticism trumpFor the campaign and declaration of religious conservatives 31st March – which coincides with Easter Sunday this year – as in “transgender day of visibility,
The Democratic president issued a proclamation on Friday, calling on “all Americans to join us in elevating the lives and voices of transgender people across our nation and working toward ending violence and discrimination based on gender identity ”
But in 2024, the March 31 fast will overlap with Easter, one of Christianity's holiest festivals. Trump's campaign accused Biden, a Roman Catholic, of being insensitive toward religion, and fellow Republicans piled on.
Trump campaign press secretary Carolyn Leavitt said, “We call on Joe Biden's failed campaign and White House to apologize to the millions of Catholics and Christians across America who believe tomorrow is only for one celebration – Jesus Christ. Resurrection of.” He attacked the Biden administration's “year-long assault on Christianity.”
House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., said on social media that “the Biden White House has betrayed the central principle of Easter” and called the decision “outrageous and disgusting.”
White House spokesman Andrew Bates said Republicans criticizing Biden “seek to divide and weaken our country with cruel, hateful and dishonest rhetoric.”
“As a Christian who celebrates Easter with family, President Biden stands for bringing people together and upholding the dignity and freedom of every American,” Bates said. “President Biden will never abuse his trust for political purposes or gain.”
Biden devoutly attends Mass and considers his Catholic upbringing a core part of his morality and identity. In 2021, he met with Pope Francis at the Vatican and later told reporters that the pontiff said he was a “good Catholic” who should continue receiving Communion.
But Biden's political stances on gay marriage and his support of women having abortion rights have put him at odds with many conservative Christians.
