President's Tweets Make Top 10 List - Obama's Tweets, Not Trump's

His tweet in response to the awful events in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this year where a white supremacy rally took place got the most likes on Twitter in 2017.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama scored the most popular post of 2017, earning nearly five million "likes" after responding to the violence at a white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August (17).

This tweet from President Obama was the second-most retweeted from 2017.

The current occupant of the White House was, however, the most tweeted-about world leader though.

A 16-year-old named Carter Wilkerson, @carterjwm, garnered 3.6 million retweets in his campaign for a year's supply of nuggets from Wendy's. President Trump had none of his tweets on the list, "nor did any of his posts crack the top three tweets with the most likes", Politico reports.

The most tweeted activist hashtag was #Resist, as in resist Trump, followed by #MAGA for Trump's slogan Make America Great Again.
