Trump proposes ‘Christian Visibility Day’ in response to Biden’s ‘Transgender Day of Visibility’ newsbhunt

Former US President Donald Trump announced plans to establish a “Christian Visibility Day” on November 5, in what appears to be a direct counter to President Joe Biden‘s proclamation of “Transgender Day of Visibility,” which coincidentally fell on Easter Sunday this year. The announcement was made during a campaign rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin, where Trump voiced his disapproval of the overlap with Easter, a sacred day for Christians marking the resurrection of Jesus Christ, a Fox News report said.
Controversy over Easter declaration
Trump expressed dismay at Biden’s decision to declare “Transgender Day of Visibility” on Easter Sunday, questioning the timing.”And what the h— was Biden thinking when he declared Easter Sunday to be trans visibility day?” Trump said, criticizing it as “total disrespect to Christians.” He assured his audience that, if re-elected, November 5 would be commemorated as “Christian Visibility Day,” receiving enthusiastic applause from his supporters.
Backlash and Biden administration’s response
The overlap of “Transgender Day of Visibility” with Easter Sunday drew criticism from various quarters, including Trump’s national press secretary, Karoline Leavitt, who labeled the move “appalling and insulting” and indicative of a “years-long assault on the Christian faith.” In response to the criticism, the White House issued a statement emphasizing unity and the dignity of all Americans. “As a Christian who celebrates Easter with family, President Biden stands for bringing people together and upholding the dignity and freedoms of every American,” the statement read, condemning the divisive rhetoric from politicians.
A divided reaction
The proposal for a “Christian Visibility Day” underscores the ongoing cultural and political divisions within the United States, with both parties appealing to their respective bases over issues of faith, identity, and inclusivity. The announcement has sparked discussions on the role of faith in politics and the balancing act between honoring religious traditions and recognizing the rights and visibility of the LGBTQ+ community.
As the debate continues, both sides of the political spectrum are leveraging these declarations to galvanize their supporters, highlighting the deep-seated divisions and the importance of faith and identity in American political discourse.
