U.S President, Donald Trump, has finally reacted to his portrait drawn by a Nigerian artist and posted on Twitter on Sunday evening.
“I think it is fantastic,” Trump tweeted on Monday evening.
The artist had posted the portrait via his handle @Doks_art urging Twitter users to help him retweet until it gets Trump’s attention.
He tagged the president, his son Donald Trump Jr. and the official handle of the president’s office @POTUS with the caption:
“This is my second portrait of President Trump. This time I really want him to see it. All done in ballpoint, took up to 70hours, ’24×21′ inches. Please RT till the president sees this @realDonaldTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @POTUS”
After the tweet had garnered over 20,000 retweets, Trump reacted.
His reactions seems to confirm that the man’s goal has been achieved.
The president tweeted via his verified handle @realdonaldtrump:
“Not only did I see it @Doks_Art, I think it is fantastic. You are a wonderful artist, never give up your dream!”
In just 55 minutes after Trump’s tweet, it has been retweeted over 8,000 times.
He didn’t indicate if he was going to buy the artwork or not.
