The Charlottesville incidents over the weekend involving members of the so-called “alt-right” movement has dominated the news cycle since last Friday. Former President Barack Obama addressed the clashes in the Virginia town with a timely tweet using a quote from the late Nelson Mandela.
President Obama posted an image of him peering into a window speaking with a group of curious children of different racial backgrounds leading with a quote from the beloved South African leader.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion,” Obama posted in the first of three continual tweets.
Obama followed with, “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.”
The tweets were retweeted hundreds of thousands of times, with just as many likes on the social media platform.
Amazing how glaring the differences between how President Obama uses Twitter and how President Donald Trump does, no?
