President Trump Participates in the Diwali Ceremonial Lighting of the Diya


The President: I am
thrilled to be here for the celebration of
Diwali, the Hindu Festival of
Lights, and I am honored to host
this beautiful ceremony at the White House. Very, very special
people. Before going any further,
I want to say a brief word about the
devastating wildfires in California, the likes of
which we’ve never seen before. We mourn the lives of
those lost and we pray for the victims. And there are more
victims than anybody would ever even think
possible. I want to thank the
firefighters and FEMA and first responders for
their incredible courage in the face of very grave
danger. Yesterday, I signed a
disaster declaration for the State of California. We will do everything in
our power to support and protect our fellow
citizens in harm’s way. And we say, I think as a
group — I can tell you as a group: God bless
everybody. That’s a very tough
situation. We’re gathered together
today to celebrate a very special holiday observed
by Buddhists, Sikhs, and Jains
throughout the United States and around the
world. Hundreds of millions of
people have gathered with family and friends to
light the Diya and to mark the beginning of a
New Year, a very special New Year. Our nation is blessed to
be home to millions of hardworking citizens of
Indian and Southeast Asian heritage who enrich
our country in countless ways. Together, we are one
proud American family. Do we agree with that? Huh? I think so. Huh? How are you? I think we do. Right? (Laughter.) You better
believe it. I’m grateful to have
numerous Americans of Indian and Southeast
Asian heritage who fulfill critical roles
across my administration. And they’ve done an
incredible job. Many of them are here
today, including the Chairman of
the FCC, Ajit Pai. Ajit, where’s Ajit? Huh? Come here, Ajit. I just didn’t like one
decision he made, but that’s all right. (Laughter.) Not even a
little bit. But he’s independent. (Laughter.) CMS
Administrator, Seema Verma. Seema? Hi, Seema. Thanks. Great job. Chairman of the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission, Neil
Chatterjee. Where is Neil? Good. Nice to see you. Thanks, Neil. Administrator of the
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Neomi
Rao. Hi, Neomi. I won’t — I won’t say
today that I just nominated Neomi to be on
the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, the seat of Justice
Brett Kavanaugh. (Applause.) So that could
be a big story. (Applause.) We were going to
announce that tomorrow — (laughter) — and I said, “You
know, here we are, Neomi, we’re never going to do
better than this right?” (Laughter.) I thought it
was an appropriate place. So, we’re 24 hours early,
but she’s going to be fantastic. Great person. he Acting Administrator
of Drug Enforcement, and another person that
I’ve become very close to, Uttam Dhillon. Uttam, where are you? Uttam, where are you? Uttam? Come on up here, Uttam. Look. Look. Now you’re famous. (Laughter.) Now you’re
famous. He’ll do a great job. Acting Under Secretary of
State, Manisha Singh. Manisha, hi. Congratulations. Great job. And Deputy White House
Press Secretary, Raj. We just have to say
“Raj.” (Laughter.) Where’s our Raj? Come here, Raj. Good job. Raj has been with us for
a long time, and what a great job he
does. Also here today is my
daughter, Ivanka, who really just
got back from India. Had an incredible time
there. Met with the Prime
Minister, Modi, who’s my friend,
and now her friend. And has great respect for
India and the Indian people — that, I can say,
right? Ms. Trump: Absolutely. Thank you, Ambassador. The President: Okay. Thank you, honey. I’d especially like to
welcome Ambassador Sarna, India’s Ambassador to the
United States, along with his wife, Dr.
Avina Sarna. Ambassador Sarna: Sir. The President: Thank you
very much. Ambassador Sarna: Great
pleasure. The President: Thank you
very much. It’s a great honor. The United States has
deep ties to the nation of India, and I am
grateful for my friendship with Prime
Minister Modi. We’re trying very hard to
make better trade deals with India, but they’re
very good traders. (Laughter.) They’re very
good negotiators, you would say, right? The best. So we’re working, and
it’s moving along. India is the world’s
largest democracy, and the relationship
between our two countries can act as a bulwark for
freedom, prosperity, and peace. As we light the Diya in
the White House, and we join in the
fellowship with all of those who light lamps in
their own homes, cities, and places of
worship. America is a land of
faith, and we are truly
fortunate to have these wonderful traditions
woven into the tapestry of our national life. And that is true. This ceremony signifies
the triumph of light over darkness and good over
evil. It is a jubilant occasion
that brings loved ones, neighbors, and
communities closer together. And these shining lights
remind us to seek wisdom, to give thanks, and to
always cherish and love the ones who grace our
lives. And I think that’s very
much how people should all feel, and I know
that’s the way we all feel. Right? We all feel that. Maybe Neomi — I don’t
know, do you feel that, Neomi? (Laughter.) Huh? Now she does, I can tell. (Laughter.) Don’t make
that too big a story, by the way. That may be the big — (laughter) — you know, I hate
the — that may be the
big story, right? (Laughter.) That’s a
pretty big story. So on behalf of the
American people, I wish everyone
celebrating here, all over our country, our
land — great United States — and around the
world a happy and joyful Diwali. I will now light the
Diya. And it’s a great honor to
be here. These are tremendous
people. Tremendous, tremendous
people. And thank you all very
much. I appreciate it. Thank you. (The President lights the
Diya.) Would you like
to say something? Please. Administrator Verma:
Well, I just want to again thank the President. I appreciate your
commitment and to celebrating this event. This is good over evil,
and light over dark. And we just appreciate
everything you do for our country every single day,
and for putting together such a wonderful team, a
diverse team. The President: And you’re
doing a fantastic job, and I appreciate it. Neomi, would you like to
say something? Administrator Rao: Thank
you very much, Mr. President, for the
confidence you’ve in shown me. I greatly appreciate it. Thank you. The President: I
think you’ve made the right choice. What do you think? (Applause.) Would you
like to say something? Ambassador Sarna: I just
want to thank you, Mr. President, for this
great honor for India and for the Indian American
community. They feel very welcome
here and they are integrated into
the U.S. society. They are a plus-plus for
both for India and for the United States. And I think we are
looking at one of the best times we’ve ever had
for the India-U.S. relationship. Thank you for that. The President: I think
that’s true. We’re very close. I think closer maybe than
ever before. Ambassador Sarna:
Absolutely, sir. The President: That’s
very good. Very good. Ajit? Please. Chairman Pai: Mr.
President, I wanted to say thank you
for hosting this event. And when I think about my
own parents’ journey from India to the United
States, I think it’s a journey
replicated by many of the folks in this room that
represented a desire for the American Dream and
also the cherishing of our culture. And to celebrate that
here at White House today is a tremendous honor,
with you. So thank you for the
support you’ve shown to our community. The President: Thank you. You know what? Uttam, where is — say
something. This is such an important
thing you’re doing, your journey. Mr. Dhillon: Thank you,
Mr. President, for having us here today
to celebrate this very important holiday to
recognize its importance and for recognizing the
value of diversity in the administration. The President: Well,
that’s the way we feel. And we love your country. I have great, great
respect for, as you know, Prime
Minister Modi — tremendous respect. So just please give my
warmest regards, okay? Ambassador Sarna:
Absolutely, sir. The President: I’ll be
talking to him soon. Thank you. Ambassador Sarna: He
looks forward to seeing you. The President: Thank you. Thank you very much,
everybody. The Press: Mr. President,
do you plan to replace DHS Secretary Nielsen,
sir? The Press: Are you firing
Secretary Nielsen? The Press: Are you
planning to make a staff change at that level? The Press: Do you have
any comment on CNN’s lawsuit against you, sir? The President: Thank you
very much, everybody. We’ll be talking about
it. The Press: (Inaudible.) The President: We’ll be
talking about it. Thank you.

  1. I swear the media has no sense of timing or respect for the sanctity of a moment. They have the entire day and at many different venues to ask those questions they did at the end but they chose the moment dedicated the those people's ceremonial moment to harass the President over inane questions. They, once again, have proven that the MSM is the enemy of the people.

  2. Generally I like the Indian people yet is it weird that I notice the fact that they are doing pagan idolotry festivals.

    I have read all the comments and not one person mentioned this.

  3. I love President Trump's humor when he's with Leaders. It's so nice to see him without Jim Acosta making a fool out of the media, there's only so much offensiveness Americans are willing to tolerate.

  4. As an Indian Hindu who has many friends and few relatives in the USA, I am very thankful to US President Donald Trump for hosting this Diwali event in the White House.

    As a man of faith in the same One God who is worshipped through different religious traditions like Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism in various parts of the world including USA and India, I found these words said by President Trump on this occasion to be very encouraging and very supportive of freedom of religious worship:

    "As we light the Diya in the White House, and we join in the fellowship with all of those who light lamps in their own homes, cities, and places of worship. America is a land of faith, and we are truly fortunate to have these wonderful traditions woven into the tapestry of our national life. And that is true.

    This ceremony signifies the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil. It is a jubilant occasion that brings loved ones, neighbors, and communities closer together. And these shining lights remind us to seek wisdom, to give thanks, and to always cherish and love the ones who grace our lives. And I think that’s very much how people should all feel, and I know that’s the way we all feel. Right? We all feel that."

    I am thankful to President Trump for this support for religious pluralism – worship of God through different religious/spiritual traditions – in the USA.

  5. Trump is so genius!! He new Real India, that all jains buddhist sikhs are same people as In Hinduism which has many gods and great personality to worship and all people worship their choice gods no discrimination at all, such a genius!! All native to Indian land is Sanatani or Hindu

  6. A beautiful ceremony.
    An uplifting event.
    See how the media mucked it up with their idiotic questions and agenda of destroying Trump? Just can't stand anything positive he does. So obvious.
    A very graceful man, President Trump walked right on out the door. Not the place for such garbage.
    A very joyful event.
    Take a good look at your media, leftests and liberals. You stink.

  7. White House Audio & Video staff, do you not like our president? In this century of technology, you really do such a poor job of covering these events. Once the President stepped away from the podium, the conversations taking place were not totally audible. I hope someone of importance takes note of your irregularities.

  8. Video should have shown when President enters the Room! Best part is everyone’s excitement when the door opens and the President walks in!

  9. Look at how pleasant and courteous these Indian Hindu folks are compared with muslims. English colonialism of India actually helped the people of India.

  10. Peace be unto you

    Peace be multiplied unto you

    שלום ושלום

    And after these things

    I saw four angels standing

    on the four corners of the earth

    holding the four winds of the earth

    that the wind should not blow on the earth

    nor on the sea nor on any tree

    And I saw another angel ascending from the east

    having the seal of the living God

    and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels

    to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea

    Saying Hurt not the earth neither the sea nor the trees

    till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads

    And I heard the number of them which were sealed

    and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand

    of all the tribes of the children of Israel

    Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand

    Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand

    Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand

    Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand

    Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand

    Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand

    Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand

    Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand

    Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand

    Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand

    Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand

    Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand

    After this I beheld and lo a great multitude

    which no man could number

    of all nations and kindreds and people and tongues

    stood before the throne and before the Lamb

    clothed with white robes and palms in their hands

    And cried with a loud voice saying

    Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne

    and unto the Lamb

    And all the angels stood round about the throne

    and about the elders and the four beasts

    and fell before the throne on their faces

    and worshipped God

    Saying Amen Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honour

    and power and might be unto our God for ever and ever Amen.

    And one of the elders answered saying unto me

    What are these which are arrayed in white robes and whence came they

    And I said unto him Sir thou knowest

    And he said to me These are they which came out of great tribulation

    and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb

    Therefore are they before the throne of God

    and serve him day and night in his temple

    and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them

    They shall hunger no more neither thirst any more

    neither shall the sun light on them nor any heat

    For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them

    and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters

    and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes

    Love and faithfulness meet together

    righteousness and peace kiss each other

    Faithfulness springs forth from the earth

    and righteousness looks down from heaven

    The Lord will indeed give what is good

    and our land will yield its harvest

    Righteousness goes before him

    and prepares the way for his steps

    The Lord bless thee and keep thee

    The Lord make his face shine upon thee and be gracious unto thee

    The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee and give thee peace

  12. LOVE our President…BEST EVER! He loves our country & fights for us while taking abuse from the left. GOD BLESS! Stay strong!! xoxo

  13. Trump take lesson from Indira Gandhi, Canadian flight 182 victims, the other martyrs and proceed with caution. https://youtu.be/fpsqQAP1W4k

  14. What a great ceremony! To bad the rest of the country won’t see how inclusive the President really is because our “Fake News” situation!

  15. This is shameful Trump. It is a betrayal of every Christian who voted for you. We do not need or want pagan ceremonies honoring demons in our White House. America is a Christian nation.

  16. Perfect photo opportunity remember Trump is a narcissist diagnosed many times so you can't really expect him to give a shit about anybody but himself so this is only a photo opportunity for publicity alone that's about all you can do is play act he's not a real man he's never done a real thing he's never done anything charitable to anybody at any time you might even checked that out see if you can find something but I doubt it so this is all bullshit have a nice night

  17. President Trump once again setting the example that our forefathers intended for this country. Many colors, many beliefs, many cultures, many lifestyles. ONE FREE AND UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. God Bless this President and the USA!

  18. In a time when people say that trump doesn’t support different cultures, he has the Indian culture in to celebrate part of their beliefs and the only questions asked at the end of it were drama related things. 🤔 nothing asked about the Indian’s ceremony with Trump. Just one question, is that not disrespectful to the Indian culture? It almost seemed like complete disregard for what they were just apart of.

  19. There is warmth ,and vision in trump…and more ..regards and respect to a friend in white house.

    Ps. Mr trump..visit india have some fun.

  20. Mr POTUS, if we don't arrest these a-holes who are stealing the election; if we don't take this hill, I am done with Q.

  21. KRIS KOBACK FOR DHS HEAD………JOE DIGENOVA FOR AG…….STOP LETTING SWAMP CREATURES TALK YOU INTO APPOINTING MORE SWAMP

  22. How do you get Californians to move so you can move more illegals in? You burn their homes down and blame it on forest fires…you make millions from the federal Government in aide..and you force a bunch of DEMOCRATS to move to nearby REPUBLICAN states..weakening the republican structure..Its a WIN for all DEMOCRATS on every level.

  23. As an Emt (First Responder) myself it means everything that the POTUS recognizes us for the good that we do. We are the ones that protect and serve all of you. Thank you President Trump for the incredible job you are doing! and building up our military that was severely depleted when Hussein was in office. #WWG1WGA

  24. I guess CNN hit the snooze button on this one Because Trump is showing compaction for other peoples religions and holidays

  25. And yet the CNN dogs continue to howl:
    "Trump is a bigot!"

    "He hates black and brown people!"

    "He only plays to the white Christian Evangelicals!

    "He is a xenophobe!"

    "He hates immigrants!"

    May the light of TRUTH overpower the darkness of the American Main Stream Media.

  26. PLEASE JESUS, LET PRESIDENT TRUMP UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE THE ONLY WAY, THAT ALL OTHER RELIGIONS ARE OF SATAN, AND PLEASE OPEN THE EYES OF ALL THOSE CAUGHT IN FALSE RELIGIONS.

  27. We have a most gracious POTUS. A great show of faith and respect to the Indian culture that is representative of US. Thank you President Trump for making America great again.

    We need to cut the obnoxiously aggressive questions of this press core after such moving ceremonies. They wonder why we see them as an enemy of The People. Shameful.

  28. Goodness, Love, Mercy and Generosity are always working through insightful leaders.
    President Trump is no racist, if he is, he is the worst at being racist I have ever seen.
    Someone is lying about the man, because I keep seeing him honor people of all types.

  29. The noise of cameras clicking is distracting, and I for one harbor a sneaking suspicion that it is done just to be rude.

  30. That was SO painful to watch. Each one of those South Asians in the room know how utterly horrible of a person the President is, and that the fabric of his character (which is based on hate, fear, racism, ignorance, xenophobia, demagoguery, intolerance) is the antithesis of what Diwali is all about. Yet they are willing to overlook all of that to advance their careers in some way.

  31. To recognize Diwali which honors the demonic idol Lakshmi the goddess of wealth is an insult to the Creator and Only God and Father of Jesus Christ, the God of our USA founding fathers who rejected participating in such evil religion. By participating in such ceremonies is inviting demons into our Nation's White House. If these government officials want to believe in such things that is up to them but for a Christian nation to "officially" honor such religion is a slap in our Almighty God YHWH and His Son JESUS' face. We love you President Trump but doing things like this is inviting Satanic influence over your and your family's life and into the very White House of our nation. Solomon made that mistake and it was Israel's downfall. He was the wisest idiot king in the history of mankind. May you be wiser and learn from his mistakes. Don't mix false religions, which Almighty God forbids, abhors, in our White House condoning such and inviting the demonic influence and God's disdain and retention of HIS Blessing found only in Faith in Jesus Christ. There is a REASON GOD BLESSED AMERICA and it goes to the FAITH of our founding fathers in JESUS CHRIST, turning away from all other religions because Jesus teaches us that there in only ONE God, not many, and only ONE way to that God and that is through Jesus the Savior, God incarnate, Emmanuel. There will be some who take this negatively because in this PC world, JESUS was NOT Politically Correct…He is TRUTH and thus spoke the Truth only. He also is God's Gift of LOVE for every person's salvation. GOD Himself came to earth as a man, Jesus, giving HIMSELF as HIS gift to mankind, paying for each one of wicked sins, including idolatry, of which DIWALI celebrates as something good (but God calls it evil). He paid the ultimate price, the torturous beatings, whippings. floggings, and nailed to a cross for SIX hours before finally giving up His life and taking all our sins into the center of the earth to cast them into Hell. But to REJECT JESUS, GOD Almighty as the One True GOD and Savior is to REJECT God's plan, the only plan and way to HIM, relationship with Him now and forever, and to reject JESUS is to remain condemned under the Penalty for our own individual sins. So Mr Trump, it is honorable that you are not biased against people, we should be so, God loves every person from every place BUT HE tells us not to join in their false religions that deceive them from the truth but rather to Love them by giving them Truth, Jesus, not encouraging a lie from mankind's enemy, Satan who likes to pose as an Angel of Light but in fact has NO Light in him at all and is tricking billions with false religions taking them away from God's only Salvation, JESUS and down with him to an eternal pit of darkness, despair, torment of Hell fires which God made for SATAN, NOT US! But for all who follow Satan and his lies of false religions…they will follow Satan right into the same judgment of eternal Hell that God came as JESUS to deliver us from. See this website and you will see that this Festival of Lights is really an honor to another LIE of Satan…honoring Satan's false god, which the bible says is really a demon, this demon called Lakshmi! PLEASE don't keep that idol or anything connected with that demon or other religions our God calls a lie, false, in our nation's White House. It is GOD Almighty Yahweh that has and Him alone who can MAGA! But if we slap HIS face with what HE tells us NOT to do or Accept, then MAGA will not happen…it will be destroyed by our disobedience to our Creator Loving Almighty God, the Father of Jesus Christ our LORD. No King but JESUS, No God but YAHWEH and No LORD but JESUS Christ the LORD. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diwali
