One word was all it took for former President Barack Obama to set social media alight on Thursday.
It’s unclear exactly why Obama issued the call to vote, some six months before the 2020 presidential election.
Others theorized that Trump’s recent attacks on in-mail voting and his widely criticized handling of the coronavirus pandemic could have prompted Obama to respond. They also noted how Obama’s post garnered more than four times the number of “likes” as his successor’s tweet.

Weird how an ex-President is telling people to vote while the current one is encouraging people not to vote.

This is amazing. Trump has tried to reduce this race to one-word tweets like “Obamagate” and so President Obama is tweeting the only word in all of this that matters: “Vote.”
