Donald Trump Releases Statement on the Passing of President Monson

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

In an official statement released by the White House earlier today, U.S. president Donald Trump offered his condolences after the passing of Thomas S. Monson, President and Prophet of the LDS Church.

The statement reads:

Melania and I are deeply saddened by the death of Thomas S. Monson, a beloved President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  While serving for over half a century in the leadership of his church, President Monson demonstrated wisdom, inspired leadership, and great compassion.  Considered a prophet by the nearly 16 million members of the LDS Church, his message was one of optimism, forgiveness, and faith.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his three children and the rest of the Monson family.
