Trump Calls For Biden Apology For Naming Easter Transgender Day

Former President Donald Trump called for President Joe Biden to apologize after naming Easter Sunday the Transgender Day of Visibility. The call came as Biden’s White House also barred religious symbolism from an Easter Egg decorating contest.

The former president and his 2024 campaign criticized Biden’s choice of Easter for the transgender memorial. Trump campaign spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt said that it was “appalling and insulting that Joe Biden’s White House prohibited children from submitting religious egg designs for their Easter Art Event and declared Easter Sunday as ‘Trans Day of Visibility.'”

“Sadly, these are just two more examples of the Biden Administration’s years-long assault on the Christian faith. We call on Joe Biden’s failing campaign and White House to issue an apology to the millions of Catholics and Christians across America who believe tomorrow is for one celebration only — the resurrection of Jesus Christ,” she said.

“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,” said Biden’s proclamation.

“I am proud that my Administration has stood for justice from the start, working to ensure that the LGBTQI+ community can live openly, in safety, with dignity and respect. I am proud to have appointed transgender leaders to my Administration and to have ended the ban on transgender Americans serving openly in our military,” said Biden.

Trump’s criticism of Biden’s decision was followed by a number of other prominent conservatives, who argued that Biden’s effort represented an attack on Christianity. They also cited the timing of Easter for the transgender visibility commemoration.

The White House announced that religious symbols were not allowed during its annual Easter Egg decorating contest open to families of members of the National Guard. The decorating contest is part of the annual tradition of Easter celebrations at the White House over the weekend, including the Easter Egg hunt.
