President Donald Trump celebrated the month of Ramadan Monday evening as a time when people join forces in "pursuit of hope، tolerance and peace."، AP، Fox News reported.

Trump held an iftar dinner for ambassadors and members of the diplomatic corps representing Muslim-majority nations.


The dinner breaks the daylong fast that Muslims follow during Ramadan. They have been held regularly at the White House since the Clinton administration as a form of outreach to the Muslim world.

Trump said it's been a rough period recently for people of all faiths. He cited attacks on Muslims in New Zealand، Christians in Sri Lanka and Jews in California and Pittsburgh.

"In their blessed memories، we resolve to defeat the evils of terrorism and religious persecution so that all people can worship without fear، pray without danger and live by the faith that flows from their heart،" he said.
