    From Hashem, only good comes forth. Moshiach was also born on this day.Perhaps a different wording for the description of this day rather than ” it’s clearly a day specially cursed by G‑d. ”

    There is a very clear sicha that the Rebbe says that the concept of “born on tisha B’av” means that the potential for the immediate revelation of moshiach is brought into the world on the day of tisha b’av – and specifically at the time of mincha – for this was the exact time that actual destruction occured – when the fires were set, and this is also the time that the entire process of golus and exile would be transformed through the geula sheliema – through moshiach.
