Trump Promises ‘Christian Visibility Day’

Former President Donald Trump said this week that if he is elected to a new term he would declare a ‘Christian Visibility Day.’ The promise follows the considerable controversy surrounding President Joe Biden declaring March 31st as the ‘Transgender Day of Visibility’ despite being Easter Sunday.

Trump asked “what the hell” the president was thinking declaring March 31 as the transgender memorial day. He said that the decision was “total disrespect to Christians.”

He said that Nov. 5, will be ‘Christian Visibility Day,’ in which Christians come out in “numbers nobody’s ever seen before.”

This is not the first time that Trump criticized Biden’s decision. The former president’s campaign immediately stated that Biden’s proclamation was inappropriate.

The White House criticized Trump’s call for the new holiday in a statement.

“As a Christian who celebrates Easter with family, President Biden stands for bringing people together and upholding the dignity and freedoms of every American,” the White House said. “Sadly, it’s unsurprising politicians are seeking to divide and weaken our country with cruel, hateful and dishonest rhetoric. President Biden will never abuse his faith for political purposes or for profit.”

“On Transgender Day of Visibility, we honor the extraordinary courage and contributions of transgender Americans and reaffirm our Nation’s commitment to forming a more perfect Union — where all people are created equal and treated equally throughout their lives,” read Biden’s proclamation.

“Today, we send a message to all transgender Americans: You are loved. You are heard. You are understood. You belong. You are America, and my entire Administration and I have your back,” Biden’s statement said.

However, after issuing the proclamation, Biden said Monday that he did not authorize the statement, despite also being on his social media page.

The move received considerable criticism from Republican lawmakers, who noted that the visibility day happened on the same day as Easter.

Rep. Diana Harshbarger (R-TN” called it a “direct assault on Christianity. It’s evident the left is determined to undermine our religion and traditions,”

“This isn’t just blatant disregard, it’s intentional,” she said.
