Trump: Biden Must Apologize to Christians

( – Former President Trump’s campaign called on President Biden to “issue an apology to the millions of Catholics and Christians” after he issued a presidential proclamation recognizing Easter Sunday as “Transgender Day of Visibility.” While the date of March 31 has been designated since 2009 as one of the hundreds of days catering to LGBT individuals, Biden’s proclamation did not sit right with millions of Christians. The topic trended on X, formerly Twitter, and other social platforms for the entire weekend.

Trump’s campaign aggressively responded to the proclamation, with spokeswoman Caroline Leavitt telling Breitbart News that the Biden administration has spent years targeting Christians. She also blasted the White House for forbidding the submission of religious-themed egg decorations during the Easter Art Event. Several other prominent Democratic lawmakers, including California Governor Gavin Newsom and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, posted videos on social media about the day. Additionally, Whitmer made no mention of Jesus Christ in her Easter post, choosing to focus on the Easter Bunny instead of recognizing the true reason for the holiday.

On April 1, RealClearPolitics reporter Philip Melanchthon Wegmann detailed Biden’s response when asked about the proclamation. Biden reportedly said that he did not issue the proclamation, which sparked online discussions about whether he did not remember taking the action or whether he did not know what was going on in his administration. Biden was asked about House Speaker Mike Johnson’s response to the proclamation, to which Biden said that Johnson was mistaken. However, Biden was identified as the author of the proclamation within its content, which included several words that made clear that it came from him.

His personal social media account also made a celebratory post from his campaign on Easter Sunday about the so-called day of visibility. Vice President Kamala Harris used the same image and made a similar post on her personal social media account. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tried to play off the proclamation as misinformation during an April 1 press briefing, using the excuse that the visibility day is celebrated on the same day every year while Easter is not.
