Campaign check: Minnesota Rep. Tom Emmer falsely claims Biden chose Easter for Trans Day of Visibility

Minnesota GOP Rep. Tom Emmer blasted President Joe Biden on social media over the weekend, claiming he declared Easter Sunday as "Transgender Day of Visibility" - which happened to fall on the same day this year - while also falsely saying he was "banning children from using religious symbols for a White House Easter egg art contest."

The House Majority Whip posted the criticism on X over the weekend and doubled down on the claim in tweets this week from his campaign account, sharing a Fox News article in which House Speaker Mike Johnson questioned whether Biden "knew what he was signing" with his proclamation.

"It's sad, yet disturbing, that it's entirely possible @JoeBiden forgot or didn't realize he was declaring Easter Sunday as 'Transgender Visibility Awareness Day,'" Emmer wrote.
