US President Trump offered a message of unity while hosting a number of diplomats from Muslim countries late Wednesday for the administration’s first iftar.
“In gathering together this evening, we honor a sacred tradition of one of the world’s great religions,” Trump said to an audience that included Cabinet members and ambassadors from many Muslim-majority nations including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates.
Trump spoke of “the renewed bonds of friendship and cooperation” forged with “valued partners” from across the Middle East and said Iftars “mark the coming together of families and friends to celebrate a timeless message of peace, clarity and love. There is great love.” He described his visit last year to Saudi Arabia as “one of the great two days of my life.” “Only by working together can we achieve a future of security and prosperity for all,” he noted.
