President Donald Trump’s tweet wishing people a “Merry Christmas” this Monday wasn’t half as popular as his predecessor’s tweet that came a couple of hours later, Newsweek says.
The tweet included a video in which Trump said that he and Melania Trump were “delighted to wish America and the entire world a very merry Christmas.” As of early Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump’s tweet has 44,000 shares and 173,000 likes.
However, Barack Obama’s tweet included a photo of him, Michelle and their two daughters together with five cute children. In the tweet, Barack Obama wrote, “On behalf of the Obama family, Merry Christmas! We wish you joy and peace this holiday season.”
The tweet received more than 1 million likes and more than 220,000 shares.
Trump’s tweet also included a video with shots of him visiting Puerto Rico that was destroyed by the hurricane, and the video got more than 3 million views.
“At this time of the year, we see the best of America and the soul of the American people. This Christmas season, we celebrate our blessings as Americans and we pray for peace all over the world.” Melania says in the video.
This is not the first time that President Barack Obama’s tweets have been more popular the President Donald Trump’s.
For Thanksgiving, Obama also had the lead with only a photo of him and his family, with a caption, “We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving full of joy and gratitude.”
Donald Trump has 45.1 million followers on his Tweeter account, whereas Obama has almost 100 million followers and it seems the president can’t manage to reach Obama’s popularity.
