Poor Donald Trump. No matter what he does, he ends up getting trolled.
While people around the world celebrated Diwali on the 7th of November, Trump apparently lit a diya in the White House in order to express his humble respect for the event. However, as expected, things didn’t go according to plan. In the tweet, Trump wrote,
“Today, we gathered for Diwali, a holiday observed by Buddhists, Sikhs, and Jains throughout the United States & around the world. Hundreds of millions of people have gathered with family & friends to light the Diya and to mark the beginning of a New Year.”

At this point, we aren’t really sure whether to laugh or cry.
How on earth did he forget the Hindus, when Diwali is majorly a Hindu festival? The pictures showed the Indians working at the White House surrounding Trump as he lit a lamp. Yet, a large number of Netizens trolled Trump for having forgotten the Hindus.

On top of that, the wishes came a week late.
