Trump Declares Election Day Will Be ‘Christian Visibility Day’

( – President Joe Biden raised a lot of ire when he acknowledged “Transgender Visibility Day,” which always takes place on March 31. The problem is that it coincided with Easter Sunday, the date of which changes every year, and Christians accused him of prioritizing a “woke” agenda over the holiday. Former President Donald Trump even got in on the action.

During a rally in Wisconsin on Tuesday, April 2, Trump proclaimed that this election day will be “Christian Visibility Day.”

The former president said Biden’s proclamation was “such total disrespect to Christians,” who will turn out to the ballots this fall in “numbers nobody has ever seen before.”

Trump wasn’t the only politician to get in on the jabs. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) said the proclamation was “outrageous and abhorrent” and “betrayed the tenet of Easter.” When questioned, Biden said the speaker was “thoroughly uninformed.” He said he did not proclaim the holiday Transgender Visibility Day, and he’s correct. That was established 15 years ago by Rachel Crandall-Crocker. It’s now recognized internationally. Biden also released a message to America acknowledging the holiday, but some say it came too late.

The White House issued a statement, with spokesperson Andrew Bates saying GOP politicians are just trying to “divide and weaken” America further “with cruel, hateful, and dishonest rhetoric.”

Trump’s speech isn’t surprising, considering he’s been moving to appeal to Christian Conservatives by ramping up his religious messaging. At one event, he said “We must make America pray again,” and has been selling Bibles for $60 in an effort to gain traction.

While on the campaign trail, Trump is also focusing on the immigration crisis, which hits home with a lot of people in the country, particularly Republicans who are trying to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. The articles are supposed to be sent to the Senate for consideration after Congress returns from its recess.
