I Find This "Passover" Message Highly Offensive

16 Nisan 5778
Chol hamoed Pesach
Yom echad of the Omer

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't Jews usually get their own separate holiday message from the President, without being coupled with the Xians? Is this a significant departure from the usual custom? Is it designed to link us as two parts of one whole? I find it as offensive as if he had plopped an Easter ham down on the seder table alongside the matzah and maror. I don't care if he issues a holiday message to Jews or not, but if he is going to do it, please leave out all the Xian references. It's as treif for Passover as a ham sandwich on white bread. Can't help wondering if Pence wrote this speech.
