According to Twitter data, President Trump's tweet announcing that he tested positive for COVID-19 has become his most-liked tweet ever with 1.6 million likes, more than 522,000 comments, and over 870,000 retweets.

In August 2019, the president's second-most-liked tweet received over 818,000 likes and more than 310,000 retweets. That tweet was about rapper A$AP Rocky being released from prison in Sweden.

Meanwhile, Democratic nominee Joe Biden's top two tweets have been about Trump. In his April 24 tweet, Biden received 1.6 million likes and more than 367,000 retweets, when he posted, "I can't believe I have to say this, but please don't drink bleach."

In a 2016 tweet, Biden wrote, "Donald Trump is the worst president we've ever had." That tweet generated 1.8 million likes and over 347,000 retweets.

The data was pulled from Twitter and only includes tweets that Trump and Biden personally authored.
