Former United States President has made another history, scoring first now as someone whose tweet is most liked ever on Twitter.
Obama had responded in his tweet to the Virginia killings following a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.
As if he never missed a beat, Obama knew exactly what to say about this tragic events during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., last week.
The former President simply responded to the matter by tweeting a photo of himself smiling at a diverse group of children standing in front of a window, with the caption, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion.” The quote is from former South African president Nelson Mandela’s autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom.
