Talk about breaking with tradition.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson decided not to host an event observing the Muslim holy month of Ramadan -- something every other Secretary of State had done for the past 19 years, according to Reuters.
This is according to two officials close to the administration, per CNN.
Tillerson apparently turned down a request from the State Department's Office of Religion and Global Affairs to host a reception marking the Eid al-Fitr, which began Saturday in many countries.
Tillerson posted this tweet to mark the start of Ramadan.
The State Department hasn't responded to these reports, but some speculate that Tillerson's decision to forgo a Ramadan celebration is part of his efforts to consolidate the agency, which includes cutting almost 2,000 jobs.
On Friday, Tillerson issued a statement marking the start of Ramadan and called it "a month of reverence, generosity, and self-reflection."
Tillerson's statement differed from Trump's, who invoked the Manchester attack in his statement.
Trump called the attack "directly contrary to the spirit of the holiday."
