Following the violence in Charlottesville, President Obama shared a tweet about racial unity from Nelson Mandela's 1994 autobiography "Long Walk to Freedom." 

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite," Obama shared on Twitter. 

As CNN reports, his reaction is the most-liked tweet in the social network's history. The tweet now has over 1.3 million Retweets and 3.4 million likes.

Business Insider also revealed the other most-liked tweets of all time. The list includes Ellen DeGeneres' famous Oscars selfie, as well as Ariana Grande's response to the Manchester terrorist attack.
