Wondering what's trending on social media right now? Here are the top trending topics in Uganda.

Other tweeps are also busy weighing in, some posting pictures from the night.
The conversation is going on THIS WAY.
US president Donald Trump is also trending in Uganda this morning.
His latest tweet is on the issue that has sparked a lot of debate in recent days - his decision to pull US troops out of what he calls "ridiculous and endless" wars.
The American leader is talking Democrats and walls in his post.
I am the only person who can fight for the safety of our troops & bring them home from the ridiculous & costly Endless Wars, and be scorned. Democrats always liked that position, until I took it. Democrats always liked Walls, until I built them. Do you see what’s happening here?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 17, 2019
One tweep is saying that the US president is playing the victim card.
Another is fully in support of the president's decision to withdraw US troops from wars, saying the US is not the "world police".
Being a taxpayer, the user says he is fed up of funding endless war[s].
Amen. The only power Satan has over us is what we permit him to have. Same as in the Garden. Adam and Eve ultimately blamed Satan for their sin which forfeited their authority to him. Jesus restored the availability of that authority. It is “at hand”— Who Dat (@WhoDat2391) October 17, 2019
