He’s just like any other politician.
On Wednesday of next week, President Trump will host an iftar dinner at the White House, in honor of the Muslim holiday, Ramadan.
I guess it only took a year to get settled in. Last year, the Trump White House broke with a tradition that has been around since the Clinton White House. I’m going to guess it seemed out of place, given the battle that was raging, in regards to Trump’s ban on Muslim travel to the United States.
This year, however, it’s all water under the bridge.
So what is iftar?
During the month of Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn to sunset and they break the fast with a meal known as an iftar.
Holding this dinner at the White House is just one more way Trump seems to be signaling a bend away from, if not a complete break away from what his most ardent supporters expect from him.
In a statement issued last month marking the start of Ramadan, Trump said, “Ramadan reminds us of the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life.”
So no more talk of a Muslim ban?
