The president of the United States, Donald J Trump is facing the heat from the netizens as he made a big blunder while conveying Diwali wishes.
Trump tweeted that Diwali is a holiday that is observed by Buddhists, Jains, and Sikhs, but he forgot to mention Hindus. Diwali is seen as a traditional festival of Hindus, who celebrate it with immense pride and joy. However, Trump left out such a widely-spread religion and that did not go well with many people.
Here are a few reactions from the Twitterati regarding this issue.

Trump's Twitter account posted a Diwali tweet that didn't mention Hindus, then deleted it, then… reposted it again with a different link but still no Hindus? pic.twitter.com/6zRqLzOA0r
