Team Trump SLAMS Biden After Declaring Easter Sunday To Be Trans Day Of Visibility

On Saturday, Trump campaign national press secretary Karoline Leavitt released a statement slamming President Joe Biden's proclamation declaring March 31, 2024, Easter Sunday, as Transgender Day of Visibility. The declaration, which garnered significant pushback from Christians nationwide, is the White House's latest attack against the Christian faith.

"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."

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.

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."

On the same day of Biden's proclamation, the Biden White House banned religious symbols from being included in an art event for "Celebrating National Guard Families," as The New York Post reported. The art contest, a tradition for the annual Easter Egg Roll, had fliers explaining that the art "must not include any questionable content, religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements."
