Tweets by White House Senior Advisor Ivanka Trump and Secretary of State Department on Ramadan sparked many angry reactions among supporters of US President Donald Trump.

Hours before the first day of the Muslim month of fasting started, Ivanka Trump and Mike Pompeo tweeted their wishes of a blessed Ramadan to Muslims in the US and across the world, igniting anti-Mulsim sentiments on social media.

Supporters of the president, who had on several occasions associated Islam with terrorism and "hate for America," condemned Ramadan tweets, arguing that the US is a Jedeo-Chrisitan country where Muslim holidays shouldn't be celebrated.

Some comments also expressed their concern with the growing number of Muslims in the United States; calling Ramadan "a good opportunity to deport Muslims."

Last Thursday, the White House issued a presidential statement wishing Muslims "Ramadan Mubarak." Yet, the message wasn't signed by President Donald Trump, neither was it shared through his Twitter account.

The message reads: "I wish all Muslims, both in the United States and across the world, a blessed and peaceful Ramadan. []... Ramadan Mubarak."
