Biden said he had appointed a Muslim for the first time to the post of consulate in charge of international religious freedom.

Respect the signs of hope and progress in the world
“Respect the signs of hope and progress in the world, including the ceasefire that has allowed people in Yemen to celebrate Ramadan and Eid in peace for the first time in six years,” he said. But at the same time, we also have to accept that there is much work to be done abroad and here in the country. Muslims make our country stronger every day, even though they still face real challenges and threats to our society, including targeted violence and ‘Islamophobia’ (fear of Islam).
