Trump Campaign Blasts Biden For Desecrating Easter Sunday

Former President Donald Trump and many conservatives are livid at President Joe Biden for the White House’s declaration of Easter Sunday as a day of remembrance for those who identify as the gender opposite of the one they were born into.

The annual observation fell on the holy day, and Biden wasted no time on Friday putting his administration’s official stamp of approval on the designation.

In his proclamation, the Democrat declared those suffering from gender confusion have “extraordinary courage.” He called on Americans to “reaffirm our Nation’s commitment to forming a more perfect Union — where all people are created equal and treated equally.”

Adding fuel to the fire was the startling White House ban on religious decorations on Easter eggs in this year’s art contest.

The Trump campaign ripped the anti-Easter stance of the Biden administration, calling the Friday declaration “blasphemous,” and “appalling and insulting.”

The flier announcing the White House egg contest demanded that design submissions “must not include any questionable content, religious symbols, overtly religious themes or partisan political statements.”

The president’s home is the site of an annual Easter Egg Roll contest and other holiday traditions.

The Easter egg prohibition and Friday proclamation drew widespread derision. In a statement, the Trump camp declared, “Sadly, these are just two more examples of the Biden administration’s years-long [attack] on the Christian faith.”

Karoline Leavitt, Trump’s national press secretary, blistered the incumbent for his blatant lack of sensitivity. She called on the president’s “failing campaign and the White House to issue an apology to the millions of Catholics and Christians across America.”

Leavitt said that Sunday observances were for one reason only: “the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) joined the chorus of condemnation over Biden’s Friday statement. He accused the administration of rejecting “the central tenet of Easter — which is the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

Posting on X, formerly Twitter, Johnson called the eradication of spiritual meaning from the clearly religious holiday “outrageous and abhorrent.” He said the American public is “taking note.”
