A Comparison of Joe Biden’s Thanksgiving Day Message with That of Donald Trump

Both former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden have extended Thanksgiving wishes to Americans, albeit in different ways.

In a video shared on Truth Social, Trump encouraged Americans not to lose hope amid what he termed a challenging period for the country. He hinted at the anticipation of a new president in the White House by the next Thanksgiving, following the 2024 election.

Meanwhile, President Biden, set to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family in Nantucket, had earlier marked his 81st birthday by pardoning turkeys at the White House. In lighthearted remarks, the oldest president in U.S. history joked about his age during the ceremony.

Biden also called into NBC News as preparations for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade were underway, expressing gratitude and emphasizing the importance of unity.

In his Thanksgiving Day proclamation, Biden reflected on the nation’s goodness, expressed gratitude for blessings, and acknowledged those facing challenges or grief. He called on Americans to come together, emphasizing the strength of the United States when united.

Notably, Trump, in addition to his official Thanksgiving message, took to social media to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to perceived adversaries, including President Biden, New York Attorney General Letitia James, Judge Arthur Engoron, and one of Engoron’s clerks. Trump excluded others he labeled as “Radical Left Lunatics, Communists, Fascists, Marxists, Democrats, & RINOS” from his well-wishes.

The former president’s social media activity occurred despite a gag order issued by Judge Engoron, overseeing a $250 million civil fraud suit brought by James. Trump had been fined for violating the order but saw it temporarily lifted by a New York appeals court judge last week.

While Trump and Biden differ in their approaches and public expressions, both convey messages of gratitude and unity during the Thanksgiving holiday.
