WATCH: During Packed Wisconsin Rally, Donald Trump Says Election Day Will Be 'Christian Visibility Day'

During a rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin, on Tuesday, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump responded to President Joe Biden's proclamation that proclaimed Transgender Day of Visibility on Easter Sunday by stating that November 5, 2024, Election Day, will be "Christian Visibility Day."

"What the hell was Biden thinking when he declared Easter Sunday to be 'Trans Visibility Day'?" Trump asked the roaring Wisconsin crowd. "Such total disrespect to Christians, and November 5 is going to be called something else. Do you know what it is going to be called? 'Christian Visibility Day,' when Christians turn out in numbers that nobody's ever seen before." Trump also took to Truth Social to reiterate his call for Christians to turn out in droves for him at the ballot box, writing, "Election Day, November 5th, will be the most important day in the History of our Country. It will also be Christian Visibility Day, the biggest turnout of Christians in the history of our Country!"

As previously reported by the DC Enquirer, the Biden White House was slammed for the proclamation declaring the Trans Day of Visibility on the day that coincides with one of the most important holidays for Christians. Biden's proclamation focused on recognizing the impact that transgender people have on American society and the work that the Biden administration has done to protect them. "On Transgender Day of Visibility, we honor the extraordinary courage and contributions of transgender Americans and reaffirm our Nation's commitment to forming a more perfect Union — where all people are created equal and treated equally throughout their lives," Biden wrote in the proclamation. "Today, we send a message to all transgender Americans: You are loved. You are heard. You are understood. You belong. You are America, and my entire Administration and I have your back."

"NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 31, 2024, as Transgender Day of Visibility," the president proclaimed. "I call upon all Americans to join us in lifting up the lives and voices of transgender people throughout our Nation and to work toward eliminating violence and discrimination based on gender identity."

In response to the declaration, the Trump campaign demanded that the president apologize. "It is appalling and insulting that Joe Biden's White House prohibited children from submitting religious egg designs for their Easter Art Event, and formally proclaimed Easter Sunday as 'Trans Day of Visibility,'" Leavitt wrote in a statement. "Sadly, these are just two more examples of the Biden administration's years-long assault on the Christian faith. We call on Joe Biden's failing campaign and White House to issue an apology to the millions of Catholics and Christians across America who believe tomorrow is for one celebration only — the resurrection of Jesus Christ." Despite receiving considerable pushback, Biden denied even issuing the proclamation, telling reporters on Monday, "I didn't do that," as previously reported by the DC Enquirer

Transgender Day of Visibility began on March 31, 2009, during the Obama administration. Biden's proclamation formalizes the day, and Easter Sunday, which is celebrated on the first Sunday after the Spring Equinox or the first full moon afterward, will not fall on March 31 again until 2086. There were no Transgender Day of Visibility proclamations during the Trump administration.
