Following the tragedy in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, former US President Barack Obama made a record on Twitter for his response to the incident.

In his tweet, Obama quoted Nelson Mandela, the iconic South African leader.

“Nobody was born to hate, and if people can learn hate, then one can also be taught how to love,” the tweet reads.

His response to the incident gained millions of shares and responses from his supporters while Donald Trump remained silent for the meantime until he released his message that ‘many sides’ were responsible for the incident.

‘No one is born hating one another’

Barack Obama’s record-breaking tweet says no one is born hating another person because of the color of their skin or their religions, and that people can be taught to love.

He added that love comes more naturally to people than hate.

His message of unity came along with a photo of him talking to children on a window sill. People are grieving that he is no longer the president of the United States, saying that they miss him and America needs his help.

Former President Barack Obama is known for his love and compassion for the public, especially the minority. This trait made him a well-loved and a respected president in the United States. Many would say that he united the nation during his administration, which explains why his presidency is deeply missed by the public.

One Twitter user replied on Obama and said that his legacy will never be erased in the history of the nation.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump, who is usually eager to post on Twitter, has remained inactive for the time being, while Obama addressed the nation.

On one hand, Barack Obama making a Twitter record was kind of a relief for many people who had been affected by the violence in Charlottesville. On the other hand, Trump is still being criticized for not condemning the white supremacists for the chaos that had occurred.

Another Twitter user replied to Obama’s tweet saying that they did not vote for “this monster” and that the country gravely needs his help.

Following the criticisms, Donald Trump offered condolences to the family and loved ones of Heather Heyer, who was killed during the protest when a car plowed into the crowd leaving her dead and many others injured.

Trump said that his administration is going to study the incident and see what they are doing wrong. They will launch an investigation to get the Charlottesville situation straightened out.
