Obama published his phone number and offered to discuss the US presidential election
The 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, invited the Americans to send him SMS messages to the number that he published on his page in Facebook.
“Okay, let's try something new. If you are in the US, text me at 773-365-9687 - I want to know how you are doing, what you think and how you plan to vote this year, ”he wrote.
“I will get in touch from time to time to share my thoughts,” Obama added.
In the first 5 hours, more than 15 thousand users left comments under the post on Facebook, shared the publication 13 thousand times.
On the subject: US presidential election: what candidates promise immigrants
Subscribers were surprised that the ex-President of the United States openly shares his phone number. Someone suggested that this is a kind of opinion poll to find out how many supporters and opponents Obama has.
Most of the users were open about the idea and actively commented on the proposal of the former American leader. Many wrote that they miss the days of his presidency, others said that it was time for Obama to "take a step back" because he was no longer involved in American politics. Someone called to “return and stop this chaos,” some subscribers suggested that the 44th US President was “trolling” them.
There were also funny comments. For example, one person wrote, “Dear Obamas, please don't forget that I invited you to a birthday party this weekend.”
The British invited Obama to come and become the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom: "I hope there will be a vacancy soon."
And someone decided to talk not only about the American elections: "Here in Uganda, we plan to vote for Robert Kyagulani Sentama in 2021".
Subscribers warned Obama that "the phone will drive you crazy", suggesting a flurry of messages that will clearly fall on the president's personal number. But for a couple of hours now, people have been writing in the comments that the number no longer accepts SMS. Perhaps the ex-president has already learned everything he wanted. But it is more likely that the mobile operator simply could not bear the load.
