His response to the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville is in stark contrast to that of President Donald Trump, who remained silent on Twitter for hours as the violence escalated. "For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite", Obama wrote.

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides ― on many sides", Trump said on national television.

Obama's reaction to the Charlottesville attack is also the fifth-most retweeted tweet.

Virginia has erupted into violence in recent days, with white nationalists and anti-fascists clashing and a man ramming a vehicle into a crowd of left-wing protesters, killing a 32-year-old in the process. The number of likes is approaching 3 million, while around 1.2 million people have shared the message and 46,000 have commented on it, as of Wednesday morning.
