Original Story:

It might be safe to say Donald Trump is still living in Barack Obama's shadow.

The former president just added another accomplishment to his long list of successes by sending out the third most-liked tweet of all time on Saturday.

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion..." Obama tweeted in response to the Nazi gathering in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend. The message is part of a larger quote attributed to Nelson Mandela, South Africa's former president known for ending the apartheid.

"'People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love,'" Obama continued in the series of three tweets. "'For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.' - Nelson Mandela."

So far, Obama's initial tweet has hit 2.5 million likes and has been retweeted over 1 million times.

Trump's tweet addressing the Charlottesville incident, however, has only raked in 188,000 likes.

Trump is still dealing with backlash from his initial response: "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence—on many sides."

It took Trump two more days to respond with a second statement properly condemning the hate groups. "Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."
