Trump Demands Biden Apologise For Referring to Easter Sunday as ‘Trans Day of Visibility’

Former President Donald Trump has called for an immediate apology from President Joe Biden over his proclamation of Easter Sunday as “Trans Visibility Day,” sparking a fierce debate over religious freedom and LGBTQ+ rights.

In a statement released by the Trump campaign, it was asserted that Biden’s action represents a “years-long assault on the Christian faith” and demanded redress for what they perceive as an affront to millions of Christians and Catholics.

The controversy intensified as prominent politicians and conservative commentators joined the fray, with House Speaker Mike Johnson condemning the Biden administration’s declaration as a betrayal of the core principles of Easter, emphasizing the significance of Jesus Christ’s resurrection.

Johnson posted on X saying that “The Biden White House has betrayed the central tenet of Easter — which is the resurrection of Jesus Christ,” Banning sacred truth and tradition—while at the same time proclaiming Easter Sunday as ‘Transgender Day’—is outrageous and abhorrent. The American people are taking note.”

The uproar stemmed from President Biden’s proclamation of March 31 as “Transgender Day of Visibility,” coinciding this year with Easter Sunday, traditionally observed by Christians worldwide.

Trump’s national press secretary, Karoline Leavitt, denounced Biden’s proclamation as “appalling and insulting,” accusing the administration of disrespecting religious sentiments by prioritizing transgender visibility over Easter celebrations.

“We call on Joe Biden’s failing campaign and the 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,” Leavitt stated.

Leavitt further alleged that the Biden administration had prohibited religious egg designs in its Easter Art Event, part of the White House’s longstanding Easter traditions, including the annual Easter Egg Roll.
