Three Obama Tweets, no Trump posts make list of 2017’s most retweeted


There was no tweet from President  Donald Trump  that made Twitter’s list of the year’s most retweeted posts.

But three tweets by Barack Obama made the list.

Obama’s tweets, on “The 9 Most Retweeted Tweets of 2017,” include one with a Nelson Mandela quote that says: “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion…”

The tweet received 1.7 million retweets and 4.6 million likes.


The second tweet by the former president that made the list includes one sent out on Jan. 10 in which Obama urges people to “believe—not in my ability to create change, but in yours.”

The third is from Jan. 20 — when President Trump was inaugurated. The former president tweeted: “It’s been the honor of my life to serve you. You made me a better leader and a better man.”
