Donald Trump and Joe Biden Deliver Highly Contrasting Easter Messages

Donald Trump and Joe Biden both used social media platforms to express their Easter greetings, conveying distinct messages to their respective followers.

Easter, a Christian holiday celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon on or following the spring equinox, typically falls between March 22 and April 25 each year.

Trump and Biden, who are expected to compete against each other in the upcoming November presidential elections, shared contrasting messages on various platforms to commemorate the occasion.

In a recent post on X (formerly Twitter), the Democratic president expressed his warm wishes for Easter, addressing those who were celebrating in churches and homes worldwide. He wrote, “Happy Easter to all those gathering in churches and homes around the world today.”

“May you be blessed and protected by God.”

The president had previously shared a more extensive message from the White House, expressing good wishes to those who were observing Easter Sunday.

In a heartwarming message to his loyal supporters, Trump took to his platform Truth Social to express his Easter greetings. His message simply said, “HAPPY EASTER!”

On Sunday, Trump took to social media once again to share an Easter message.

In a recent message, the writer extended Easter greetings to everyone, even including those he perceives as dishonest prosecutors and judges who are allegedly attempting to obstruct the 2024 presidential election and incarcerate him. He expressed strong disdain for these individuals, whom he believes are working to dismantle the United States, a country he believes is currently in decline.

Trump called out his prosecutors by name, specifically mentioning Department of Justice (DOJ) special counsel Jack Smith, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. He criticized each prosecutor and strongly criticized Biden, referring to the president as “CROOKED.” Trump ended the post by once again wishing everyone a “HAPPY EASTER!”

In one of his first posts of the day, the former President expressed his disapproval of Representative Mike Gallagher, a Republican from Wisconsin, who recently announced his decision to resign from Congress. Trump’s words were sharp and critical, as he wrote, “We must never forget those who are cowards and weaklings! It is truly a disgrace.”

Representatives for Trump and Biden were contacted by Newsweek via email to provide comments on this story.

This year, Easter celebrations have stirred up some controversy. Conservative politicians have voiced their criticism against Biden, accusing him of “banning” religious symbols from an Easter event.

The American Egg Board extended an invitation to children from National Guard families, urging them to submit their artwork for display at the “Celebrating National Guard Families” event. This event is a part of the annual Easter Egg Roll, a cherished tradition held at the White House on Monday.

The tradition of the Easter Egg Roll originated in 1878 when President Rutherford B. Hayes declared that children could roll Easter eggs at the White House. This decision came after Congress had prohibited similar activities on the U.S. Capitol grounds in 1876.

Conservatives on social media were outraged when Biden declared Sunday, March 31 as Transgender Day of Visibility, coinciding with Easter this year.

The International Transgender Day of Visibility has been observed annually on March 31 since its inception in 2009. This significant day serves as a tribute to transgender individuals while also shedding light on the ongoing challenges they encounter due to discrimination.

White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates responded to the criticism by stating in an email to Newsweek on Saturday afternoon that President Biden, as a Christian who celebrates Easter with his family, believes in uniting people and upholding the dignity and freedoms of every American. Bates expressed disappointment in politicians who seek to divide and weaken the country with cruel, hateful, and dishonest rhetoric. He emphasized that President Biden would never exploit his faith for political gain or personal profit.
