Obama: “Here in the US, we are blessed with Muslim communities…I stand firmly with Muslim American communities”


Has he ever said that the United States was “blessed” by the presence of any other community? Has he ever said that he “stands firmly” with any other community?

“Statement by the President on the Occasion of Ramadan,” WhiteHouse.gov, June 5, 2016:

…Here in the United States, we are blessed with Muslim communities as diverse as our nation itself. There are those whose heritage can be traced back to the very beginning of our nation, as well as those who have only just arrived. Doctors, lawyers, artists, teachers, scientists, community organizers, public servants, and military members, each night will all break their fasts together in cities across America.

As Muslim Americans celebrate the holy month, I am reminded that we are one American family. I stand firmly with Muslim American communities in rejection of the voices that seek to divide us or limit our religious freedoms or civil rights. I stand committed to safeguarding the civil rights of all Americans no matter their religion or appearance. I stand in celebration of our common humanity and dedication to peace and justice for all….
