Donald Trump In His Diwali Tweet Gets The List Of Celebrants Mangled; 96% Of Buddhists DO NOT Celebrate Diwali!
They must have looked it up on Wikipedia — because they got the list HORRIBLY wrong!
Diwali, as most people do know, is first and foremost a HINDU celebration. A very special holiday for them.
So, in any list re. Diwali, Hindus need to come first ….
Having the list starting with Buddhists is a JOKE.
Only a very small, Nepal-specific subset of Buddhists celebrate Diwali.
96%, if not 98%, of Buddhists do NOT celebrate Diwali.
This was a REALLY STUPID Tweet — even by Donald Trump standards.
Yes, there was a 2nd Tweet that tried to rectify matters by mentioning the Hindus.
