President Trump's Weekly Address...This Week On Passover & Easter
Washington, DC...My fellow Americans, This is a season of great hope. This week, Jewish families across our country, and around the world, celebrate Passover and retell the story of God’s deliverance of the Jewish people. The story of the Exodus is a story of freedom. It is the story of an incredible people who were liberated from oppression and raised up the face of humankind.
Down through the centuries, the Jewish People have lived through one persecution after another–and yet, they persevered and thrived and uplifted the world beyond measure. And now, the State of Israel stands as a monument to their faith and endurance.
Another day of faith and celebration is also upon us.
This Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ and the promise of eternal salvation. It is a holy day of reverence and worship; it is a sacred time that fills the spirit of our Nation with the faith of our people.
America is a Nation of believers.
As families gather in houses of worship across the Nation, we are grateful for the tremendous blessings of this land, our home. We have a beautiful country, an abundant countryside, and an amazing people with a truly bright and wonderful future.
From the beginning, America has been a place that has cherished the freedom of worship. That is the promise the first settlers saw in our vast continent—and it is the promise that our bravest warriors have protected for all of our citizens in centuries since, a long time ago.
Sadly, many around the globe do not enjoy this freedom—and one of the gravest threats to religious freedom remains the threat of terror.
On Palm Sunday, as Christians around the world celebrate the beginning of Holy Week, ISIS murdered at least 45 people and injured over 100 others at two Christian churches in Egypt.
We condemn this barbaric attack. We mourn for those who lost loved ones. And we pray for the strength and wisdom to achieve a better tomorrow—one where good people of all faiths, Christians and Muslims and Jewish and Hindu, can follow their hearts and worship according to their conscience.
With God’s grace, life always triumphs over death, freedom overcomes oppression, and faith extinguishes fear. This is the source of our hope—and our confidence in the future.
I also want to give a special message to those struggling Americans who have felt for too long the bitter taste of hardship. I want you to know: this White House is fighting for you. We are fighting for every American who has been left behind. We are fighting for the right of all citizens to enjoy safety and peace—and to work and live with the dignity that all Children of God are entitled to know.
As long as we have faith in each other, and trust in God, we will succeed.
Thank you. Have a Happy Easter, and a Happy Passover. God bless you. And God bless America.

It is sad people will believe in anything fed to them with out doing the deeper research into the information they have been fed.
The ways of man are not the ways of our Creator but an enmity against our Creator. People should research the deep pagan roots of this festival of men compared to the Passover of our Creator. There is a huge difference in how it is celebrated and the spiritual mechanics of it's beauty given by our Creator.

A lot of smart people do, do their research, that's why Hillary lost the election. The Electoral College System works, they are the ones who changed their preference, changed their party and crossed the line to vote for Donald Trump to lead our Nation in this difficult time.These delegates knew the Hillary was selling out America, with all of the foreign "contributions" to the Clinton Foundation. All foreign donations stopped, died up, ceased the very day she lost the election Mr Dimwit, what does that tell you Einstein? Do you see that, or are you still wearing the blinders when you look towards that wicked, old, disgusting hag named Hillary? Now we all get to hear you cry and whine about your President Donald Trump.
Your whining is Un-American and Unpatriotic.
Don't worry, you're still getting all of the government assistance from the democrats and President Obama, that won't change anytime soon. There are more urgent task that have been neglected these last 8 years to do. Your freebies will be looked at seriously though, and this will also make me happy for you slugs might have to actually do something for the money you leech off of the good, honest, hard working, Patriotic Americans who have been putting food on your plate, in your home they have been paying for through their taxes. All in due time leech, but it will happen.

Oh Lord what self-deception. Trump has achieved nothing (except Gorsuch) that can't be undone on the first day of the next president by executive order. Hilariously he can't even pass legislation through a Republican Congress by sheer force of his own incompetence. He used 59 bombs to target a runway that was operational less than 24 hours later. The Chinese media has been openly mocking him as a paper tiger. On and on...

It is you who ought to do some research. Trump has reversed almost all the positions that caused the "deplorables" to vote for him.
He is lying to you in almost every statement he makes and you are so blinded by your hate of people who do not share your views that you can't even see it. You are the perfect mark - you got taken in by the deception and you still don't know you were scammed.
Hillary will not be locked up
Mexico will not pay for "the Wall."
NATO is no longer obsolete.
We have not stayed uninvolved with Syria.
The Chinese are no longer currency manipulators.
Trump has not shown us his taxes as promised.
Trump is not even pursuing "extreme vetting" anymore.
Trump did not win in a landslide.
Trump's inauguration crowd was not historically large.
....the list goes on and on....
Your guy is a LOSER. Since you support him, so are you.

Let's hope our children and grandchildren have a few more springs and Easters left. SNL's lampoon of Spicer as the Easter bunny lamenting Trump's saber rattling and responding North Korean missile threats was spot on.
He showed his tax returns to me. Take my word for it, he paid lots of money in taxes. Now there. Don't you feel better? Obama wasn't a citizen. He wouldn't show his birth certificate. We won...you lost. Stop your tantrums. It's getting sad.
He paid zero taxes. He said he would release them. If he said he would put them out , then do so . 75 % of the good people want them released . Stop all the Bull Sh--ing , You look so weak to all the world . Fake Prez

Don't forget your former hero Bill Clinton, the professional rapist. You liberals have had your minds raped for so long you now love it! Like any addiction you just have to deny it long enough for the new behavior to feel normal. You can do it!!!
