Donald Trump blasted for silence on Kofi Annan
People from around the world have taken to twitter to question the silence of US President, Donald Trump, on the death of former Secretary-General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan.
Past and present world leaders took to social media or released statements on the passing of the Nobel Peace Prize winner as soon as the news of his death was made public.
Celebrities across the globe from the movie and music industries, models, footballers, renowned journalists as well as ordinary global citizens wrote messages of condolence and tributes to celebrate the life and memory of Mr Annan.
However, the world’s most powerful leader has been silent on the passing of the Ghanaian diplomat. His tweeps took to twitter to question his silence.
Below are some of the tweets:

Not sure if you heard the news but Nobel Prize winner and 7th Secretary-General of the United Nations for 19 years, Kofi Annan, passed away recently.— Hannah's Meemaw #ThisIsNotNormal (@HMeemaw) August 20, 2018
The reason I bring that to your attention is because a decent man and a President would offer some kind of tribute. Just sayin'.
How about thanking folks like #JohnMcCain for his service to our country? Or #KofiAnnan for his service to the world?— Jean L.P. Jaurès (@larsp2740) August 27, 2018
Once again, you demonstrate your lack of dignity, your boorishness, and your embodiment of the word "schlub."
