Trump: ‘The Light of Christ Will Always Triumph’ Because ‘He Has Defeated Death’

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.”
The statement acknowledged this year’s Easter observance came “during a somber time for our Nation” but said Americans have displayed many works of compassion. 
“Throughout this difficult period, we have witnessed the core tenets of Christianity – love, compassion, and kindness – reflected in the many acts of courage, generosity, and caring of the American people,” Trump said. “Our country’s citizens have taken to heart the words of 1 Peter 4:10: ‘Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.’ 
“Countless Americans have selflessly answered the calls for help in their communities and have performed extraordinary acts to help their neighbors in times of need. Healthcare workers and medical professionals have worked tirelessly to heal the sick, and thousands of volunteers, first responders, critical workers, and businesses have contributed their time and resources to help defeat this virus.”
