Trump gets savagely TROLLED for his Diwali tweet; Here is why

New Delhi: US President Donald Trump and his Twitter blunders are no longer new to people. In his latest trouble, Trump, who keeps providing fodder to the trolls committed a fresh blunder in his Diwali greeting. He was trolled savagely for the tweet in which he omitted mentioning Hindus. His tweet calling Diwali a “holiday observed by Buddhists, Sikhs and Jains” had no mention of Hindus, the members of the first and largest religion to observe it.

Within a few milliseconds, the trolls caught the glaring mistake and started a raging Twitter storm.

However, in another tweet, Trump was careful enough to emphasise Hindus.

He wrote in his second tweet: “It was my great honour to host a celebration of Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, in the Roosevelt Room at the @WhiteHouse this afternoon. Very, very special people!”

His speech at the White House Diwali celebrations on Tuesday was also started the same way on Tuesday with an emphasis on Hinduism.

Addressing the people gathered for the celebration, Trump said they were “very impressive group; now I know you are very important, very impressive. I am thrilled to be here for the celebration of Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights and I am honoured to host this beautiful ceremony at the White House.” Then veering off his text, he added, “Very, very special people.”

He then interrupted his speech to thank the firefighters who were saving people’s lives in the ravaging California wildfires that killed more than 40 people.

He then again picked up his Diwali speech after that, and continued with: “We are gathered today to celebrate a very special holiday observed by Buddhists, Sikhs and Jains throughout the US and around the world.”

It is apparent that the first tweet that set off the trolls was taken from this second part of his speech. The social media immediately noticed the mistake and lashed Trump over it.
