President Donald Trump offended billions of the world's Christians this morning, wishing them, "HAPPY GOOD FRIDAY TO ALL!"
As many know, Good Friday is a solemn day Christians observe, but not celebrate: it is believed to be the day of the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ.
For many Christian sects, it is a day of fasting and, in non-pandemic times, a day spent in church.
On social media responses ranged from mockery to outrage.
