The former president’s tweet was followed up by two more tweets, which completed the quote attributed to late South African President Nelson Mandela that was started in his first tweet.

The full quote reads, “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.”
