The United States President Donald Trump sent Muslims «warmest greetings» as they are celebrating the end of Ramadan, Anadolu said on Monday.

«Melania and I hope that this holiday brings joy and peace to all those celebrating, and we pray that communities worldwide feel God’s abundant blessings of love, forgiveness, and goodwill», said Trump in a statement.

«This sacred day provides Muslims, both in the United States and around the world, an opportunity to renew their commitment to help those less fortunate, to strengthen their faith in God, and to engage in worship and fellowship with others», the President said.

The end of Ramadan was also addressed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who published a video on his Twitter account wishing Muslims in Canada a happy Eid. «Today, Muslims in Canada and around the world will celebrate Eid al-Fitr», Trudeau said on Monday.

In French and English, the Prime Minister said that «Eid is a time for community and celebration and it’s a chance to honor the values at the heart of Islam, from service and generosity to peace and compassion and whether it’s volunteering at a local food bank or supporting charities».

«Muslim Canadians show us the best of those values, throughout the year», he stressed, adding that the Canadian government will «always stand with Canada’s Muslim communities and continue the fight against Islamophobia and hatred in all its forms».
