Donald Trump received heavy criticism for the way he responded to the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, which is completely understandable, considering the fact that he basically refused to condemn Neo-Nazism, racism, and other disgusting acts of human behavior that have no place in American life. It's only the most basic thing a President can bother to do, but Trump found a way around it.
Because of the way handled things, it comes as no surprised to many why tons of people are retweeting and liking Barack Obama's tweet in response to the violence in Charlottesville.
The former president quoted Nelson Mandela and attached a photo of him sharing a smile with a group of young children. The full quote is divided into three tweets, which reads in full, "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."
Which has Twitter yearning for the days when the US had a leader with "class", and not someone who is constantly fanning the flames of his own ego and refusing to condemn groups that his most vociferous supporters are in favor of.
The tweet currently stands as the most liked of all time on Twitter. Previously, the most liked tweet belonged to Ariana Grande, with her response to the Manchester bombing at her concert in 2017. Not that it's a competition, because both of their reactions were to two horrific events. Which is probably a good thing why I'm not a humanitarian or anything like that, because I'd see that my tweet was more liked than Ariana's and I'd probably take a bit of pride in it.
