Muslim fasting month of Ramadan: Donald Trump extends wishes

Washington : The US President Donald Trump on Wednesday extended greetings to Muslims observing Ramadan and said the holy month is a time of self-reflection intended to deepen one's spiritual growth.

"In this spirit of thanksgiving and reflection, those observing Ramadan can strengthen our communities, help those in need, and serve as good examples for how to live a holy life.

"With the rising of tonight's moon, I send my greetings and best wishes to all Muslims observing Ramadan in the United States and around the world," Trump said.

He also felt proud of heading a nation that celebrates diverse culture.

"Our Constitution ensures Muslims can observe Ramadan in accordance with the dictates of conscience and unimpeded by government. By doing so, the Constitution also furnishes varied opportunities for all Americans to deepen their understanding of the human soul," Trump said.
