Christ’s light will always triumph over “trials and tribulations,” President Trump said in an Easter message that also commended Americans for displaying the “core tenets of Christianity” during the coronavirus pandemic.
The White House released the statement over Easter weekend.
“No matter the circumstances, we will always celebrate Easter as a time of rejuvenation, rebirth, and a renewed sense of purpose and faith,” Trump said. “The coronavirus will not stop Easter. Even in the darkest hours, God’s abundant love and mercy are unwavering.
“The light of Christ will always triumph over the trials and tribulations we face because He has defeated death. Today, let us take a little extra time to pray for the strength of our country and our people, and ask that God hold all Americans in the palm of His hand. Together, let us rejoice in knowing that Christ has risen.”
