On Tuesday, President Donald Trump unleashed on former First Lady Michelle Obama after she had an extremely divisive speech at the Democratic National Convention.
The President took to Twitter to unload on Michelle Obama, saying that her husband was the reason that he got elected.
“Somebody please explain to [Michelle Obama] that Donald J. Trump would not be here, in the beautiful White House, if it weren’t for the job done by your husband, Barack Obama,” he tweeted.
“Biden was merely an afterthought, a good reason for that very late [and] unenthusiastic endorsement,” President Trump continued. “My Administration and I built the greatest economy in history, of any country, turned it off, saved millions of lives, and now am building an even greater economy than it was before. Jobs are flowing, NASDAQ is already at a record high, the rest to follow. Sit back [and] watch!”
During her speech, Michelle Obama unloaded on President Trump and hammered the American people for electing him.
“As I’ve said before, being president doesn’t change who you are; it reveals who you are,” she said. “Well, a presidential election can reveal who we are, too. And four years ago, too many people chose to believe that their votes didn’t matter.”
“Four years later, the state of this nation is very different,” she added. “More than 150,000 people have died, and our economy is in shambles because of a virus that this president downplayed for too long. It has left millions of people jobless. Too many have lost their health care; too many are struggling to take care of basic necessities like food and rent; too many communities have been left in the lurch to grapple with whether and how to open our schools safely. Internationally, we’ve turned our back, not just on agreements forged by my husband, but on alliances championed by presidents like Reagan and Eisenhower.”
She also claimed that everything from the Trump White House is “chaos, division, and a total and utter lack of empathy.”
She falsely claimed that “people shouting in grocery stores, unwilling to wear a mask to keep us all safe,” was President Trump’s fault along with people calling the police on others “just because of the color of their skin.”
“So let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can. Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is,” she claimed. “So if you take one thing from my words tonight, it is this: if you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can; and they will if we don’t make a change in this election. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it.”
President Trump later sent out another scathing tweet: “The ObamaBiden Administration was the most corrupt in history, including the fact that they got caught SPYING ON MY CAMPAIGN, the biggest political scandal in the history of our Country. It’s called Treason, and more. Thanks for your very kind words Michelle!”
