Can he just be president again please?

Memories of Barack Obama’s eloquence are sometimes all that sustains us through these dark, Trumpian days.

And while he may not be president anymore, Obama is still king of sending a unified message in the face of so much hatred.

After neo-Nazis and white supremacists stormed Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, killing one woman and injuring 19 others, Trump remained quiet on social media while Obama spoke of racial tolerance and love.

In a series of three tweets, one captured the attention of Obama fans everywhere. Posting a picture of himself with children from a variety of cultures, he quoted Nelson Mandela, writing: ‘No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion…’ The post has since become the most-liked ever on Twitter, with 3.1 million at time of writing (and rising). That is sure to make insecure Trump feel less of a man. Obama’s powerful message just ousted a tweet from Ariana Grande, which is the second-most liked on the micro-blogging site. Her emotional message to fans following the Manchester Arena bombing received 2,703,448 likes.
